Frequently Asked Questions

What are doctor referrals?

A doctor referral is a document written by the current doctor who refers the patient to see another specialist that is more prepared in that area of expertise.

How do you write a letter of referral to a doctor?

A letter of referral to a doctor should include information about the patient, their current medical condition, first diagnosis, medical history, the reason for referring them to another doctor, the recommended specialist or clinic, and all parties’ contact details. Although it’s called a letter of referral, it can be structured into an online form, which gives it a more organized way of collecting, revising, and storing data.
