Referring physicians are those doctors who willingly forward cases to other specialists. This can happen due to several reasons. Perhaps, the patient might have multiple issues which might need the assistance of a more experienced doctor. In such cases, referral of the patients happens. Referring a patient is a very critical process. During this, care should be taken so that the entire patient details are transferred to the new doctor. Nowadays, this transfer is performed through internet. Additionally, there are other considerations that are to be kept in mind.
