OCD and Anxiety
Behavioral health issues are part of the fabric of our human existence, but few people understand them and even less people understand how they can be treated. People who suddenly find themselves in the middle of a crisis having to do with mental health issues don’t know where to turn. They end up visiting a primary care physician or a psych ward at a local hospital. Sometimes this is all that is needed, other times, the patient and/or family need more specialized or depth of care than a primary care provider can give.
In these situations, primary care providers may ask themselves two questions. How do I know when it is time to refer my patient? Or why are providers consistently choosing Rogers Memorial Hospital? The main reasons based on feedback Rogers receives are:
Effective referral begins with a good consulted-consultant relationship that includes familiarity with each other’s needs and idiosyncrasies. The process will, in part, hinge on expectations and knowledge each has of the other.
The number one reason why Primary Care Providers refer to Rogers?
Rogers Memorial Hospital has an outreach staff communicating with primary care providers the depth and breadth of the services available to patients and families.
