Referring Doctors

Referring a patient is easy. Retina Associates of Western NY strives to take the stress out of this process. Therefore, whatever method of referral that is most convenient for you, we can accommodate. The items we will require of you:

  • Basic Demographics (including insurance)
  • Diagnosis/Signs & Symptoms
  • Medical Records (CCD File if possible or Fax)
  • When you Would Like Them Seen
  • Time Frame

RAWNY is an emergency practice. Therefore, there are often same-day appointments available, should your patient require.
