For Referring Physicians
Thank you for referring your patient to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Centers Medical Genetics Program. Our team is committed to providing the best care for your patient and to serving as a resource for you in your practice. Recent advances in genetic testing have made it possible to provide testing options for common conditions such as mental retardation or autism, as well as providing access to diagnostic testing for numerous rare syndromes.
There are multiple ways to refer a patient to our clinic.
- Have the patient call the Genetics appointment line: 310-423-9914
- Fax a prescription for genetics consult and pertinent patient demographics to 310-423-2080
Once we receive your new patient referral, a member of our staff will contact the patient and begin the appointment process. In addition to providing demographic information, please provide any medical records that are pertinent to the diagnosis. This will enable us to schedule the patient most accurately and provide services in a timely fashion.
We will make every attempt to contact your patient, however if we are not able to reach the patient, we will notify you via fax/mail.
If you have any questions or would like to speak with us directly, please call the Genetic Counselor at 310-423-9935. We look forward to serving you and your patients.
