If the Referring Provider is outside of Summit Health, it might take a few days for the Physicians notes to make it to Summit Health and for the Specialist Provider to review those notes. For patients requiring referrals to providers that are outside of Summit Health, we can help process those referrals as well.
Physician & Community Providers
We work with all Physician and community providers and will make sure to help find you the right Physician for your needs. And if you have a need to go to Portland or beyond, we work with a number of medical providers both regionally and nationally to help ensure our patients get the care you need. Often external referrals require our team to send out relevant information to the Physician we are referring you to in order to have complete care. That process can take a day or two but we will make sure your Physician has the necessary information to provide appropriate care for you.
