Common Questions:

Why does Dr. Lawlor require a referral for a new patient visit, even if my insurance does not require one?

When a provider sends a doctor to doctor referral, typically they will send the reason for visit along with any previous notes, lab tests and imaging addressing the current issue. In addition they will send other pertinent information including past medical history and any current diagnosis.  This process helps save time and cost in making a diagnosis and is standard in the field of Rheumatology.   

Why am I scheduled to see a midlevel provider (Nurse Practitioner or PA) if I was referred to see Dr. Lawlor?

Rheumatology is one of the smaller fields in medicine and there are a limited number of board certified Rheumatologist in the country. It is common practice to use NPs and PAs under the supervision of a Rheumatologist so new patients can continue to be seen. Your diagnosis and treatment will be under Dr. Lawlor’s direct supervision and he will typically meet you on your first or second visit with the midlevel.

How long will it take to be seen?

Prescott office wait time is typcially 4-12 weeks.

Phoenix office currently 1-3 weeks.
