Referral Policy

The Center for Rheumatology does not require new patients to have a referral from their primary care physician unless the patients insurance requires it.  

If the patients' insurance carrier requires a referral, it is then the patient’s responsibility to obtain this prior to the visit.

If you or your patient is interested in a consultation with one of our professionals, please call 518-489-4471 and speak to a Patient Coordinator. You can also access our New Patients Section to learn more about becoming a patient and completing the new patient packet.
