Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Do I need to have some sort of prep when I come to my appointment?
A. The initial appointment is for consultation only. The provider will perform his assessment to determine if a procedure is warranted. A procedure will be scheduled prior to leaving your appointment. Instructions for preparing for the procedure will be given and reviewed with you prior to leaving your initial appointment.
Q. I was seen in the GI Clinic in the past and I want to come back here for my care, but I was deferred to the network. Why can’t I be seen here in the Gastroenterology Clinic again?
A. Consults are reviewed by the Central Referral Center. The Central Referral Center determines if there is access to the Gastroenterology Clinic. “Access” means that there is enough appointments to take care of the number of patients being referred to the Gastroenterology Clinic. If there isn’t any “access”, then the referral is deferred to the network.
A. Other consults are only good for one year. Patients may be required to see their primary provider for renewal of their consult.
