Referrals, Consultations, and Appointments

When a patient's condition requires the expertise of a specialist, we make it easy for you to connect with one of our 1,500 physicians.

You can arrange for a referral/appointment for one of your patients in three ways:

  • Call our MD Connect Referral Line at (585) 273-4000 or 1-866-794-8762 (see more information about this line below).
  • Contact the physician's office directly.
