Mountain Orthotics & Prosthetics Services, Lake Placid ~ Plattsburgh

How to Refer a Patient

Physicians, PA’s or Nurses practitioners can prescribe to us directly; they do not need to be a specialist. Sometimes a Physician will refer a patient for an Orthotic or Prosthetic evaluation or consultation. After an evaluation or consult, our practitioners can report back their findings to the referring physician with possible treatment options. There is never any fee or patient financial commitment for evaluations or consultations. However most devices require a prescription signed by a Physician, PA or NP for fabrication and delivery.

If you have any questions about the details of what should be written on an orthotic or prosthetic prescription, please feel free to call our office at 518-523-2419.
