For Referring Physicians:
We know that you have a choice when referring your patients to specialty providers. It is our privilege to assist you in the care of your Charlotte dermatology patients. At Metrolina Dermatology and Skin Surgery Specialists, we aim to focus on the individual needs of each patient in a timely manner with the help of courteous and knowledgeable staff. It is our goal to provide outstanding service to our referring physicians by providing exceptional patient care, timely scheduling of referred patients, and prompt professional communication through concise letters, photographs, and phone calls, when appropriate.
To schedule an appointment for general dermatology, please provide the following information:
- phone number
- date of birth
- type of insurance
- nature of medical issue
To schedule an appointment for Mohs Surgery
Patients referred to our office by either another dermatologist or physician for Mohs surgery or excision may either schedule an appointment for both a consultation and surgery on the same day OR schedule a preoperative consultation to discuss the operation with the actual procedure being performed on another date.
If you have a patient whom you would like to refer for Mohs surgery, we will need a copy of the pathology report (if skin biopsy has already been performed – usually faxed by referring provider) and your current insurance information.
Mohs surgery cannot be performed without a pathology report.
If you do not have a pathology report, please schedule the patient for an office visit so the lesion of concern can be evaluated.
A photo and/or diagram of skin cancer location for the patient to bring on the day of surgery to confirm the surgical site are extremely helpful, but not necessary.
Although we do not require a consultation prior to surgery, we would be happy to arrange a patient meeting with Dr. Haberle upon request of you or the patient. There are certain locations where Dr. Haberle might request a consultation prior to scheduling the surgery.
