For Physicians

Welcome Referring Physicians

Welcome referring physicians and colleagues.  We look forward to working with you to manage patient care.

Making a Referral

We accept patient referrals by phone call Monday through Thursday 8:00 am to 5:00 pm and Friday 8:00 am to 4:30 pm.  We do not accept patient referrals by fax or mail.  To schedule an appointment, we require patient demographic information, medical insurance ID number and diagnosis.  All patients are initially examined in our Fargo office; we do not see new patients in Grand Forks.    

We do not accept self-pay patients or the following insurance companies/plans: United Healthcare (as primary coverage), UCare, PrimeWest, BCBS Western MN Plans and Sanford True Plans.  We do not contract with the VA or HealthNet.

After Hours Care

Dr. Johnson and Dr. Gilca provide 24/7 emergency services to North Dakota and the surrounding region.

If you have an emergency patient outside regular office hours, please call our main office number, 701-293-9829, and our answering service will connect you with the on-call physician.
