Johns Hopkins Ambulatory Tropical Medicine - Consultation Service

SUSPECT AN ILLNESS FROM YOUR TRAVELS?

  • Call your primary care provider to discuss your illness.
  • Request that your primary care provider contact the Tropical Medicine Ambulatory Consultation Service to discuss the need for a referral for diagnosis and treatment.
  • Who should your provider contact?
    • Shone Sterner, Clinical Program Coordinator: 410-955-8931

WHY DO YOU NEED A REFERRAL?

  • Your primary care provider is, among other things, the coordinator of your overall health care. Everyone should have a primary care provider--- a physician, nurse practitioner or physician assistant.
  • If non-infectious, non-tropical disease or non-travel related illnesses are discovered, you may need to have ongoing management of these conditions. For this reason, even if your insurance will allow a visit without a referral, we will only schedule a visit with a referral from your primary care provider.
  • The Tropical Medicine Ambulatory Consultation Service does not employ primary care providers but rather a team of experienced tropical medicine experts.
