Hi – many thanks for the quick reply! I am in Kansas City.My PCP and specialists that I've seen are here. For Mayo, I followed the process on "Request an Appointment," which indicated that you could simply request one and that a physician referral wasn't required. This was confirmed when the appointment people called me back. We talked though where the request should go, and because I don't have a firm diagnosis, settled on Internal Medicine. They sent an online questionnaire from consultative medicine, which I filled out and submitted back on line.
The referral isn't an obstacle – I think my PCP would do it if I asked although it may take a bit more time to put together. I do have another appointment in about 10 days and will ask.I Appreciate any help or experiences of others in the group. Many thanks again.
