To make an appointment with a XiMED physician, please call the physician’s office. Since each medical practice is part of our XiMED network and independently operated, your appointment is made directly with the office. Verify with the office that the physician accepts your current insurance plan. Please note that not all offices are necessarily on the same insurance plans. If you change insurance plans, review your coverage and your physician’s participation.
One of the advantages of having an insurance product such as a PPO is that you can self-refer to a specialist of your choice. Also, remember that your primary care physician has general responsibility for coordinating and managing your routine care and as such will likely play a role in referring you to a qualified specialist. If your insurance is with a more restrictive type plan such as an HMO, then you will need to make sure that you follow the appropriate guidelines for specialist referrals. You may search for a physician by specialty by using our physician finder, which will provide you with helpful information about each physician’s training, philosophy, and so forth. XiMED’s physicians provide care to many patients from around the world. Mexico and Canada are close neighbors and we serve patients from other areas such as Europe, Asia, and the Pacific Rim. If you are an international patient or family looking for a physician in a certain specialty area you may use our physician finder and contact the offices directly.
