Does a patient have any rights to select a specialist Doctor that they want a referral to or is this completely out of the patients control? Thanks

Hello There,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

A specialist may ask for a referral from your primary care physician. If you have a preference, you may want to ask your family doctor to write a referral to your preferred specialist. For more information on finding a specialist, please visit Settlement.Org article, How can I find a medical specialist?

We hope this information is helpful. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to post them here.


Sincerely,

Your Settlement.Org Team
