Referrals to Dr. Harper's Office:
All patients must be referred by a physician to be seen by Dr. Harper in his clinic. A consult request letter as well as copies of any pertinent laboratory tests must be mailed or faxed to Dr. Harper's office before any appointment can be considered. This contact information (address, phone, fax) is for the use of your physician's office in making such a referral.
