Gundersen Lutheran has expanded MedLink services to include referral appointment scheduling. You or a designated representative from your office can now call MedLink to schedule your patient(s) for referral appointments* with Gundersen Lutheran specialists at our clinics in La Crosse and Onalaska (patients cannot schedule their own appointments via MedLink).
To schedule a referral appointment(s) for your patient via MedLink:
- Call MedLink at (800) 336-5465.
- Ask the operator to connect you with a MedLink scheduling specialist.
- Provide the scheduling specialist with the information needed to aid in the appointment scheduling.
- The scheduling specialist will contact the necessary department(s), secure time(s) for the appointment(s) and call your patient and your office with the appointment information.
During our latest Mages study with physicians and providers like you, you shared with us that our referral appointment process could be time-consuming and cumbersome. We hope this addition to MedLink will simplify the appointment scheduling process, and save time and energy for you and your staff.
If you have any questions, please contact Gundersen Lutheran Regional Services via MedLink.
*Gundersen Lutheran providers in La Crosse and Onalaska should continue to call the department directly for a referral appointment.
