Optimized Patient Scheduling

With the newest addition to the Summit Orthopedic Specialists team Madeline Lummis, PA-C, we have effectively optimized our patient scheduling process. Her contribution allows our surgeons to take on a higher number of new patients in need of urgent orthopedic attention. This frees up our surgeons to see patients who have requested treatment from specific providers. Now with approved referrals, we can normally schedule your first visit within one week!

Referral-Based Appointments

If you are on an HMO plan, referrals are required. It is important that all referrals come to us completed with all necessary information. We are happy to work with your referring provider to gather this information if needed.

Referrals Fax: 916-965-4813

Scheduling without a Referral

If you are on a PPO or are a self-pay patient and you are in need of orthopedic care then you do not need a referral to schedule a visit with one of our surgeons. Simply call (916) 965-4000 or contact us via our on-line form to schedule your appointment.
