      How do I get an appointment?

We are a referral clinic only. You must see your primary care manager (PCM) and they must deem it necessary for you to see an Orthopedic Provider. Your PCM must then enter a consult in the computer system to our clinic. After your consult is reviewed and approved, TriCare will call you within 30 days to schedule your initial appointment. Once specifically diagnosed and treatment is completed you will be followed up with in the clinic until resolved for that problem. You must get a new referral (from your PCM) for every surgical concern.
