How Self-Referable Services Work

self referable services

Time is money, and nothing is more important to our team of doctors in Irving than your time. While going to the doctor is important and vital in some situations, for other occasions, you know exactly what you need. For your convenience, we have created a list of self-referable services of common medical tests and procedures that you can schedule on your own.

One of the benefits of going to a multi-specialty medical group like the Medical and Surgical Clinic of Irving is being able to get referrals within the network of medical providers. For procedures and tests not listed below, you will still need to consult a specialist; however, for these tests, you can schedule them without seeing a doctor first:

  • Ideal Protein Diet
  • Bone Density Studies
  • Hearing Aids
  • Varicose Vein Treatments
  • Food Sensitivity Testing
  • Physical Medicine
  • Digital Mammograms

These tests are all common procedures that people routinely need. For most patients, they have ordered these tests in the past and understand when they need them again. For example, most women over the age of 45 should get regular mammograms or younger if you have a family history of breast cancer. Trying to lose weight? The Ideal Protein diet offers a medical-based system to help you quickly and safely lose weight and regain your health.

While these particular tests and procedures do not require you to see a physician to schedule, we should remind you that self-diagnosis of serious problems can be dangerous. If you are worried that you have a medical condition, or if you are experiencing problems that cannot be diagnosed by self-referable services, consult a medical professional as soon as possible. For some serious conditions, the faster a medical professional catches a problem, the sooner they can start treatment.

If you are in search for a doctor in Irving, TX, contact MSCI today and schedule an appointment with one of our medical providers. However, if you know exactly what kind of medical test or procedure you need, MSCI can save you time by scheduling a self-referable service directly.
