Insurers often require a physician referral prior to your visit to Oak Ridge Gastroenterology Associates. As a courtesy to our patients, we will attempt to contact your primary care physician and request a referral. However, it is your responsibility to confirm that a referral has been obtained before you are seen by our providers.
