Physician Information

Dr. McCrea is accepting referrals to his office and more information about the process can be found here.  To make your life easier, we have made downloadable referral forms/guidelines for endoscopy, breast health surgery, and general surgery.  The office uses OSCAR EMR and has generated eforms for referrals if you would like to download and add them to your OSCAR eform database.  Dr. McCrea accepts referals by fax or phone but not by email.  Patients can email their information voluntarily to us but we will not accept 3rd party emails of confidential patient information.

Referral Forms

Please find downloadable guidelines with fill-able disease templates for general surgery referrals. The purpose of these guidelines is to streamline patient flow towards diagnosis and treatment. The current guidelines are PDF documents. In the future, OSCAR EMR eforms will also be available for download here.
