Patient Referrals

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy can be used as a supportive or complementary service for your patients. The information provided here serves to help you identify patients that would benefit from the use of oxygen therapy and our services.

If your patient’s treatment plan could be enhanced by hyperbaric oxygen therapy, please download our patient referral form. Completed forms can be faxed directly to the MVS Wound Care & Hyperbarics office to which you are referring your patient. Once your patient is medically cleared for hyperbaric oxygen therapy, a treatment protocol and schedule will be established. If you have a patient case that you would like to discuss with a provider on our MVS Wound Care & Hyperbarics team before you provide the patient with the referral, please feel free to contact us.

As a valued referring physician, we want to assure you that we see ourselves as a supportive and complementary service that aims to help you heal your patients faster. We will always ensure that you are actively involved in their continuing care.
