Referral process

For providers

There are two ways to refer a patient. First, you may simply call us at 800-850-2960 or, you can complete our Patient Referral Form and fax it to 314-692-6402. You may also use your own form through your electronic medical record.

After we receive the information, our referral coordinator will contact the family within 48 hours. Once the appointment date is established, you will receive an appointment confirmation letter in the mail.

For parents, legal guardians, etc.

We gladly accept self-referrals. A referral from a physician is not required. The instructions are the same as mentioned above. You may simply call us at 800-850-2960 or complete and submit our Patient Referral Form.
