*A referral is required for all initial appointments.

*Once a referral has been entered the patient must call the Tricare Appointment System - 1-800-404-4506, to schedule an appointment.

*Because of severe staffing shortages, at present, the average waiting time for a new appointment may exceed 4 weeks. We expect to have a third full time deramtologist added to our staff in July 2000.

*If an appointment is not available within 30 days you may be offered the opportunity to be seen outside MAMC.

*Patients who have been evaluated by the MAMC Dermatology Service in the past year are not required to have a referral for a follow-up visit. Simply call the Tricare telephone number above and request a Routine Follow-up Appointment for Dermatology.

*The Dermatology Service offers a Skin Cancer Screening Clinic twice each year. One clinic is held in May each year. The other is scheduled for September or October. We do not require a consult for you to be seen in this screening clinic, but we do require that you call Tricare and get an appointment. During this screening clinic we are only able to evaluate you for skin cancers. We will not be able to refill medications or assist you with any other skin problems. If a skin cancer is discovered during this screening we will make arrangements to have it taken care of promptly.
