Unfortunately, it is not possible for us to see all patients who are
referred to us. We screen all referrals to select those who will
benefit the most from a consultation. Also, most of our clinics have a
significant waiting period for new consultations. Please provide as
much clinical information as possible so our staff may triage the
referral to the appropriate sub-specialty clinic.
We recognize that some patients may need consultation sooner than
routine scheduling permits. Our doctors are happy to speak with you to
facilitate urgent visits on a case-by-case basis.
Stanford Health Care 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
