Becoming a Patient
Although patients can request and
make an appointment for counseling services, a psychiatric evaluation requires
a physician referral.
Physicians referring a patient
must fully complete a referral form. Physicians should print, complete
and fax the form to 802.747.0129. Physicians who submit a referral on a weekday
before 4pm will be contacted by the end of the next business day. The unit is
closed on weekends.
Patients receiving outpatient
counseling or a psychiatric evaluation must complete the release of information
forms needed for Rutland Behavioral
Health to coordinate care, and share information, with the patient’s primary
care physicians or other health professionals.
