Patients who choose to go to Mayo Clinic in Rochester for more specialized health care will find they have improved access to care, due in part to Mayo Clinic Health System in Owatonna's affiliation with Mayo Clinic Health System. Your physician or specialist will help you with a referral and will provide you with directions to Mayo Clinic if needed.

Your medical records - including lab tests and radiology results - are readily available to Mayo Clinic physicians. The smooth transfer process of medical records prevents duplication of services.

If you receive registration material from Mayo Clinic via mail, please complete and send that information to Mayo Clinic to save time during your Rochester visit.

Once your specialized care is completed, your regular physician will continue your care.

Patients can seek services with providers and medical organizations other than at Mayo Clinic. Your physician can help you make these arrangements.
