I Need a Referral!

If your child needs a referral for more specialized care, don’t worry!  We can help! We are proud of providing comprehensive care to our patients but there are times when it is necessary to refer to specialists for further evaluation and treatment. Many insurers require the primary care physician to authorize referrals to specialists. We will provide referrals to physicians participating in your insurance plan after evaluating the clinical complaint. When a referral is required, we request at least 48 hours to process the request. We cannot give retroactive referrals for consultations not initially recommended by one of our pediatricians.

RKM offers medication assistance through partnerships with local pharmacies, tele-health services, an electronic health record (EHR) system with online patient portal, referrals for specialty care and on-site certi­fied assistance counselors to help you navigate qualifying insurance programs including Medicare and Medicaid.

All RKM clinics are JCAHO Accredited Primary Care Medical Homes and provide a full range of medical, dental and behavioral health services. This means we provide safe, high quality care that treats the whole person with options to choose your provider and be involved in your own treatment plan.

Let us be your family’s choice to provide the right care, close to home.
