Referrals to Specialty Care


We know coordinating care between primary care, specialists, diagnostic facilities and other healthcare providers can be a complicated task. In the United States, more than a third of patients are referred to a specialist each year. The referral process is often inefficient and poorly coordinated – a source of frustration for patients.

At Avance Care, we take complete ownership of the referral process. We believe that finding an appropriate and reliable specialist should not be a patient’s concern. As an Avance Care patient, you can rest assured that when you are referred to a specialist you will be seen by a knowledgeable and experienced provider. Our Referral Coordination Department works closely between yourself, your Primary Care Provider (PCP) and a number of specialists we call “High-Value Specialists.”

What is a High-Value Specialist? 

A High-Value Specialist is well-accomplished in their field, schedules appointments in a timely manner and will stay in close communication with your PCP. These High-Value Specialists are not selected based on a financial agreement—only their ability to provide seamless, collaborative, high quality and cost-effective care.

Avance Care has developed unique relationships and processes over our years of experience in the Triangle. We employ the most up-to-date and advanced referral management and tracking tools so that you don’t get lost in the healthcare system. We apply these advantages to make certain you are fully satisfied with your health care experience, with providers both inside and outside of our clinics.
