How to Refer a Patient


Our referral office will contact any prospective patients within five (5) business days after your call or email to collect basic information and give further instructions. We require a medical summary, operative notes, relevant radiographic scans (MRI, CT, PET) on CDs, pathology report, and tissue (either blocks or slides) from your surgery. 

With the patient’s permission, we keep their primary physician fully informed and involved in their care. After consultation, the team will contact the patient's primary physician to coordinate care and follow-up plans.

Want to discuss a clinical case? If you have a difficult or interesting clinical case and would like to discuss treatment options with our team, please contact Dr. Jaydira Del Rivero by email at jaydira.delrivero@nih.gov.
