Schedule One with Great River Orthopaedic Specialists Today
Most patients come to Great River Orthopaedic Specialists because they
were referred by another provider who felt their conditions needed the
attention of a specialist. All spine patients must be referred. A few
other patients come as self-referrals. Some health insurance companies
require a referral by another physician. You should check your policy
to be sure.
