I want to see a Derm but I have a question...

So I recently got medical coverage and I haven't seen my derm in about 7 years. Do I need to get a new referral to see him? or can I just give his office a call and see if he will see me?

If I need to get a referral I'll need to find a new personal physician. My last one was a pediatrician. For that I suppose I can call my parents doctor and see if they are taking new patients. Otherwise I'll have to look around and see who's available.

tl;dr: got med coverage, haven't been to derm in 7 years. Do I need a new referral to see him?

If you had Kaiser then your derm. was probably a Kaiser derm., right? If so, then you probably can't see him again, but I'm not entirely sure. Best thing to do is call the customer service for your new plan.
