Referring and Scheduling

Referrals to our forensic group are made from a variety of sources, including a government entity, agency, or private company.  Burrell can receive referrals to the agency for assignment as well as to individual clinicians.  Burrell professionals routine accept referrals from state Circuit Courts, Corporation Counsel, Social Security Administration, Department of Vocational Rehabilitation, defense attorneys, the Office of the District Attorney, an employer or other agency.

To make a referral to Burrell or one of our highly qualified practitioners, please call (417) 761.5850.  When calling, please be prepared to discuss the nature of the evaluation needed. Staff will then provide you with an estimate of the length of time to complete services. Once proof of funding is received, an appointment can be scheduled with our main office for services to be performed.


Billing is handled on a case-by-case basis.  Typically, the referral source versus the examinee is responsible for the costs of services rendered.  An estimate of the cost of an evaluation can be obtained at the time of referral.  Due to the nature of forensic examinations, we are unable to submit to insurance.
