New Patient Referrals

Dr. Dore is a specialist; most insurance companies require a written referral requested by your primary care physician, internist or other doctor.  Even if your insurance company does not require a written referral, Dr. Dore requires a written referral.

Dr. Dore does not see Self-referrals or non-physician referred patients.

If you do not have the required referral, you will have to reschedule your appointment until the referral is received by our office. These are policies required by your insurance companies and /or Dr. Dore’s office policies.

All patients must have a primary physician or other health-care provider for general medical (and emergency) care as well as routine physical exams. For example, your primary physician is responsible for your routine screening for various diseases, such as for breast, cervical, colon and prostate cancer. Breast, genitourinary and rectal examinations are not performed by Dr. Dore as part of her rheumatology care.
