Outside Physician Referral Information
Long Beach State Athletics Department's student-athletes may be granted an opportunity to seek a second medical opinion at the university's expense under the following conditions:
- They wish to see their family doctor-Pediatrician, Internist, Family Practitioner, General Practitioner.
- The referral is to a specialist in treating the specific injury(s). Referrals must come from the Long Beach State athletic training staff and/or team physician and must be authorized prior to the onset of care.
The final disposition of an athlete's case and the treatment recommended, including any and all surgeries, will be determined by the medical director only with consultation with our team orthopedists and with the second opinion doctor.
The student-athlete will be given copies of all the pertinent medical records, including imaging reports and other documentation needed to help the second opinion doctor make an evaluation.
Treatment and/or surgery by second opinion doctors will not be allowed unless specifically authorized by the medical director. The second opinion doctor must work in conjunction with our Director of Medicine at all times.
The medical staff will make referrals to outside medical entities as directed by team physicians.
It is generally agreed that second opinions can be requested from licensed M.D.'s only and that certain other categories must be excluded from that group (Holistic caregivers, chiropractors, acupuncturists).
