Referrals to Specialists

Dr. Sokolon recognizes the scope of family practice and the need for occasional referral to specialty services. This will be at Dr. Sokolon's discretion. Dr. Sokolon will use evidence-based guidelines to direct these decisions. Before any referral is arranged, patients must see the family doctor for pre-consultation information gathering and investigations to facilitate a faster and more effective consultation.
