New patient referral process

Referrals are first reviewed to determine the level of urgency and UNC’s ability to fulfill the consult request. Urgent referrals are processed within 48 hours of receipt. Non-urgent referrals are processed within three to five business days often by a clinician to ensure the patient receives the most appropriate care. Our staff will contact the patient directly to schedule an appointment.
