Preferred Specialists

Before taking your child to any specialist we recommend that you:

  • Check your insurance plan to make sure the specialist is in network
  • Check to see if your plan requires authorization (approval of the referral) to see a specialist
  • Schedule the appointment
  • Call Wadsworth Pediatrics with the appointment information so that we can send the specialist a synopsis of your child’s medical history including the reason for the referral.
