Referrals

Specialists

If you need to see a specialist, your provider will refer you to one whom they know and trust will provide you with excellent care, but we cannot guarantee that they are in your insurance plan. Make sure you know your insurance plan’s referral requirements and any specific restrictions.

Schedule your appointment with a specialist only when you have your referral approved and in hand.

Bring the referral with you to your appointment!

How long will it take?

If your referral is for an urgent medical situation, it will be processed right away. An urgent situation is one that would cause significant bodily harm if not processed immediately. All non-urgent referrals are processed and mailed to you within 5 business days. Our referral coordinator will contact you if there are any questions or concerns. Please try not to call to check on your referral until 5 days have passed; we’re working on it!

Please note that some insurance plans require a 5-7 day authorization period after we’ve contacted them for certain referrals such as: nutrition counseling, sleep studies, infertility, hemodialysis, outpatient infusion, hyperbaric oxygen, ongoing referrals involving a case worker, or those involving a non-participating (not covered by your insurance) facility.

Once you have your referral approved, schedule your appointment with the specialist. Remember to bring the referral with you to this appointment!

To request a referral, please call (703) 573-8604.

We charge a $10 replacement fee for lost referrals.

CoVID 19 AlertIGIMG is Committed to the Safety of our Patients

We ask that all our patients with respiratory symptoms who wish to be evaluated, call us first. We are attempting to dedicate certain hours during the day for these specific evaluations and thank you for your cooperation!

Before coming in for an appointment, please inform the office if you have traveled in the last 14 days or if you have been in close contact with someone who has traveled or been diagnosed with the corona virus.

We are open and available for any symptoms that require an in office evaluation.

We encourage VIDEO VISITS for appropriate acute or chronic problems. You may schedule a videovisit via our Patient Portal and will be evaluated by an IGIMG Practitioner. Patients with Medicare Part B may now also schedule a video visit for acute and chronic problems.

We are also scheduling TELEPHONE CONSULTATIONS, given the large number of phone calls we are receiving.
