Patients & Providers

All our patients receive individualized, high-quality care at the NIH Clinical Center, America’s research hospital, located in Bethesda, Maryland.

Our care team contacts any prospective patients within 48 business hours after your call to collect basic information and give further instructions. We require a medical summary, operative notes, relevant radiographic scans (MRI, CT, PET), pathology report, and additional materials as indicated.

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