Consultations

Outpatient consultations can be scheduled with one of our nationally certified, experienced providers. These can be requested by your physician or may be arranged on a self-referred basis. If your insurance company requires a referral from your primary care physician for full reimbursement, it is the patient’s responsibility to contact their insurance or know these requirements from the policy and follow the appropriate rules for reimbursement by the insurance company. Charlottesville Gastroenterology Associates is not responsible for knowing this information.
