Referrals by Another Physician:
A physician may need an opinion of another physician or may need the advice of a specialist because of his or her experience and training in a particular area. In such cases, the patient is considered purely a private patient of the referring physician. Once the patient is examined, an appropriate diagnosis and therapeutic recommendations are made and discussed with the referring physician. A typed consultation letter is sent to your referring physician. Further follow up care is given along with your physician for the best patient care and as per the standard guidelines.
