A technique where special drugs called photosensitizing agents are applied to your skin (for skin cancers) or injected into the bloodstream and then activated with bright blue light.
Also called light therapy, phototherapy exposes the skin to lasers, LED, fluorescent lamps, and ultraviolet or infrared radiation to treat diseases. Phototherapy may be used on the whole body or smaller areas.
Please confirm the location of your appointment during scheduling as our doctors and staff see patients in multiple locations.
PREPARE FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT
New patients should bring their medical records to their first appointment
Make sure your primary care provider sends any physician notes, laboratory results, X-ray films and other studies or bring them with you to your first visit.
Bring your insurance card and the name and telephone number of your referring doctor.
Stanford Health Care (formerly Stanford Hospital & Clinics) provides comprehensive services to refer and track patients, as well as provides the latest information and news for physicians and office staff. For help with all referral needs and questions visit Referring Physicians.
When you refer one of your patients to a Stanford Health Care Dermatology Clinic, we want to assure you that we'll provide him or her with the same level of personal care you give them.
HOW TO REFER
To refer a new patient, fax the patient referral form with any supporting documentation to 650-721-3476. A Patient Care Coordinator will fax a confirmation of receipt to your office. We will contact the patient and schedule an evaluation appointment upon insurance clearance. If you have questions, please call 650-721-8211.
