Next Step Foot & Ankle Clinic has a Referral Management Center (RMC) to coordinate consults, referrals and schedule appointments for three providers. We value your referrals and want to ensure that your patients are treated with the kindness and respect they deserve along with timely service. As a referring physician, your patient usually can be seen in any of our locations within 2 business days. Emergencies will be seen on the same or next day. All new patient consults / visits will be followed up with notes to the referring physician. There are three ways to refer your patient to Next Step Foot & Ankle Clinic.
Please FAX your referral to our Referral Management Center at (210) 257-6931.
We ask that you attach a face sheet, referring physician’s NPI, treatment note, and copy of the insurance card if available. For your convenience, we have included a Referral Form here that you may use but it is not required. Once received, we will contact your patient directly to set up their initial consult / comprehensive foot and ankle exam. We will notify the referring provider upon any initial appointment cancellations. All insurance benefits and eligibility requirements will be handled by our staff so you can be assured your patient can focus on getting better, faster.
Please CALL our Referral Management Center at (210) 375-3318.
A representative from your office may also call Next Step Foot & Ankle Clinic to schedule a comprehensive foot and ankle evaluation for your patient. An appointment will be scheduled immediately for your patient.
3. PATIENT’S RESPONSIBILITY
The patient may call directly to schedule a referred visit to our clinics. Please provide them with one of our business cards or provider cards to remind them to give us a call. If you are out of business or provider cards, please call us and we will promptly provide you with more.
