Referring Providers

About Cardiology Referrals

For more than 30 years, Central Georgia Heart Center has provided personalized, high-quality and positive outcome-driven cardiovascular healthcare throughout Central Georgia.  We highly value our referring physicians and other providers and recognize that your patients and our patients benefit from timely and efficient service.  Serving you and our patients is our top priority.

We try to accommodate patient referrals for routine consultations within ten working days. Urgent consultations will be seen within 72 hours.  In case of an emergency evaluation that must be seen within 24 hours or on the same day of the referral, please contact our office immediately.  As a general rule, any patients needing stress testing, whether it is an exercise stress test,  echocardiography stress testing or PET or SPECT imaging, an initial evaluation may be scheduled by referring physician’s staff by calling 478-741-1208.

How To Submit A Referral?

We accept referrals in all formats.  Referrals, records and other professional documents may be securely faxed to 478-238-6192 or 478-743-4193.  For more information, or with any questions, please contact us at 478-741-1208.

We also have the capacity to use secure direct messaging or what is sometimes referred to as Peer-to-Peer (P2P) communication.  This HIPAA-compliant, safe and secure network allows for the quick and easy transmission of referrals, patient records, lab results and more.  While we use Centricity EMR, we are able to interact with other EMR systems.  Please let our staff know if you are new to direct messaging (P2P) but would like to communicate with us this way.

How To Submit A Referral?
