For Physicians—Making an Appointment

- The Primary Care Physician must complete the Physician Referral Form and fax along with insurance referral (Medicaid referrals must be cascading and include current screening date), growth chart, lab work obtained in the last 6 months, and clinic notes to 205-212-2735. Patients over age 18 should be referred to UAB's Weight Management program. You may contact UAB EatRight at 205-934-5564. To speed up the process, have the family complete the Parent Form in your office and fax along with the referral. Downloadable Physician Referral (PDF) Please complete this form even if demographic sheet is attached.
- *We will not schedule the initial appointment in our clinic without completion of orientation and ALL paperwork received in our office .

At this visit your child will be seen by several healthcare professionals including a pediatrician, a registered dietician, a physical therapist and a pediatric psychologist. Please call our office at 205-638-5750 if you are unable to complete orientation online.
