Referring physicians

{ what to expect }

We treat your patients like our own.

We strive to make the referral process as seamless as possible. Your calls are answered by a person (not a machine) and we will do everything we can to see your patient in the time frame you deem most appropriate. Often, that means the same day. Feel free to ask to speak to Dr. Pelton directly if your patient has special needs.
