Referral Status

St. Mary High Desert Medical Group prides itself in processing your referrals to specialist in a fast, accurate and expedited manner. If you and your provider have agreed that you should see a specialist for consultation or treatment, your physician will electronically submit the referral request to our Referrals Department. On average, our referrals are completed within 5 working days, with the exception of "STAT" requests within 24 hours, and "urgent" situations are processed within 72 hours.

Our Utilization Management (UM) staff are available Monday-Friday during normal business hours to accept collect calls regarding any UM issues. They can be reached at (760) 669-3051.
