Many of our specialty care offices require a referral from primary care for your initial visit, so if you're already an FHN patient you may need to contact your primary care provider for more information. If you're new to FHN or don't have a primary care provider, call the number above and you'll have a primary care appointment before you hang up the phone!* Thank you for choosing FHN!
