Referrals for Your Appointment

Many health plans require a referral before a specialist can see you. Check with your health insurance company to see if you need one before you schedule your appointment.

If you need a referral, call your primary care doctor’s office and have the following information ready:

  • Your name and date of birth
  • Daytime phone number
  • Name of insurance & ID number
  • Name of specialist / facility
  • Reason for specialist visit

Make sure your referral is sent to us (or you can bring a paper copy) before your appointment.

IMPORTANT: Our rheumatologists and nurse practitioners cannot see you if you don’t have the completed referral.

Patient Forms

New Patient Referral Form – This form allows your general physician or other specialist to refer a new patient for a doctor’s visit at Integrative Arthritis and Pain Consultants.


Medical Release Form – This document allows a patient to list the names of family members, friends, clergy, health care providers, or other third (3rd) parties to whom they wish to have made their medical information available.


HIPPA Consent Form – This document allows an appointed person or party to share specific health information with another person or group. Your appointed person can be a doctor, a hospital, or a health care provider, as well as certain other entities such as an attorney.

Arriving for Your Appointment

  • Please come in 30 minutes before your scheduled time.
  • Check in with our front desk team. Tell them your name and provide any insurance information, referral (if not electronic), lab results or imaging studies.
  • Pay your insurance copay amount.



If you need to cancel an appointment, call us at least 24 hours before your appointment or we will have to bill you for a visit anyway.

If you call at least 48 hours before your appointment, we can let another patient use that appointment slot in your place, so you won’t be billed.
