      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 a General Surgeon. 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 surgical treatment is completed you will follow up with your assigned PCM. You must get a new referral (from your PCM) for every surgical concern.

     If I have a civilian PCM can I be seen in the General Surgery Clinic?

Yes, you must bring in a prescription with the procedure needed (this will be your referral). It must be approved by one of our staff surgeons then you will be booked an appointment only if space is available.

     How do I get my medication prescribed by my general surgeon refilled/renewed?

Variety of ways:
  • Simply calling the medication refill line: 719-333-3784. Be sure to have your prescription number (located on the label) with you.
  • If you're told that you're medical refill has expired, contact the clinic at 719-333-5140 to verify if an appointment is needed to have a new prescription written or if your provider will be able to enter a new request.
     How do I obtain copies of medical information to take to a downtown provider?

You will need to fill out and sign a medical release of information form with the Outpatient Records section.
