9 Ways To Get Doctor Referrals

Want to build strong referral relationships with medical professionals? The key is offering them something of value.

A few therapists at my clinic have been focusing on networking with Doctor’s offices as potential referral sources. Through my 10 years in private practice, I’ve wasted a lot of time visiting medical practices with little result. However, during that time I found a few doctors or health practitioners who have consistently referred to me so I put together an training and presented it at our staff meeting yesterday. I thought that some of you might appreciate some tips on how I’ve built relationships of trust with medical practices who have referred patients for mental health or relationship therapy.

  1. I also try to get clients to sign a release form to speak with the physician, even if the client wasn’t referred to me by them. A quick letter or phone call with your initial impressions or recommendations can go a long way in generating future referrals.

  2. You state that you’ve wasted a lot of time visiting medical practices with little result, yet for several of your points don’t really give much info on how to go about accomplishing them. Sure a face-to-face meeting with a physician is a great idea, and an easy one to think up. Now, how do you go about doing that, exactly? What do you do and say for a quarterly follow-up?

  3. Thank you for sharing this amazing article. Well, those who are confused how to find a medical doctor referral for them this is a really helpful post. Finding medical doctor referral is not that much easy who fulfill all our needs so if we know any of referral network then it would be easy to get best medical doctor referral.
