The transition to adult life is even more complicated for those with special health care needs. Our Youth In Transition (YIT) program welcomes young people (age 18-25) with chronic illness to partner with us to optimize their health.
As family medicine specialists, we coordinate the healthy part of care for people with complex care needs. We partner with our patients to help them stay productive and healthy, and connect them with specialty care resources, when needed.

Emergency room visits outside clinic hours no longer require pre-authorization by your doctor, by California State Law. Make sure you inform your physician within 24 hours following your visit.
Be aware of your health plan limitations - unless you require 911 emergency transport, some health plans require you to obtain all after-hours emergency care at Stanford ER if you have a primary care doctor at Stanford.
A physician is on-call after hours to coordinate any emergency care needs which arise after-hours and can be reached at the 24 hour number: 650-498-9000.
