Do I Need an OB-GYN Referral?

/ Posted in: Health /

When it comes to receiving quality healthcare and having insurance pay for those services, the answers to questions aren’t always easy. Often, a healthcare specialist or insurance company requires a referral from a primary care physician. So, if you’re wondering about getting an OB-GYN referral to the Kaldas Center, we have your answers!

 

Do I need a referral to see women’s healthcare specialists at the Kaldas Center?

 

You do not need a referral to schedule an appointment at the Kaldas Center. Unlike some specialty physicians, you don’t need to first visit your primary doctor for a referral. Why? Plain and simple, when it comes to family practice, internal medicine, pediatrics or OB-GYN services, insurance companies do not require a referral.

 

 

Board Certified OB-GYN

Perhaps you need an endometriosis specialist, or a PCOS specialist, or even a fibroid specialist. You can find all three at the Kaldas Center and see us without a referral. How? Dr. Kaldas is a board-certified OB-GYN, which means a referral is not required. Remember, you don’t need a referral for family practice, internal medicine, pediatrics or OB-GYN services. And because Dr. Kaldas is an OB-GYN, you do not need a referral to make an appointment with the Kaldas Center.

 

You may also be surprised to learn that you can name your OB-GYN as your primary care physician. It really comes down to personal preference and your health concerns. While gynecologists are women’s healthcare specialists, most are able to provide services that address your overall health. Just ask!

 

Insurance Coverage

 

When it comes to insurance coverage, we always recommend speaking directly with your insurance provider. The Kaldas Center is in-network for many insurance carriers; however, be sure to check your complete plan as you may have both in-network and out-of-network benehttps://kaldascenter.com/wp-admin/tools.phpfits.

With battling infertility for years, Dr. Kaldas made our dream come true! We had tried to get pregnant naturally for about 2 years. We then decided to seek medical help. After multiple unsuccessful medicated cycles and multiple failed intrauterine inseminations (IUI) and multiple doctors we were finally referred to Dr. Rami Kaldas. After meeting Dr. Kaldas for the first time, we had regained our hope in achieving our dream of having a baby. We were distraught and lost after dealing with infertility for the past 3 years, but Dr. Kaldas gave us that newfound hope. He gave us reassurance and helped reduce our stress and anxiety. After only 2 months of being treated by Dr. Kaldas, we were pregnant! He is a true professional in his field! We are very thankful to have met Dr. Kaldas. During our pregnancy he was still by our sides ensuring the successful delivery of our little one. He is very dedicated, knowledgeable and committed to each of his patients. The night I went into labor he had worked an entire day, stayed the entire night and worked the following day as he had multiple other deliveries and appointments to keep. He is very driven and dedicated to his patients and it shows. No amount of thanks will ever be enough. I highly recommend Dr. Kaldas to anyone dealing with infertility or pregnancy!
