You can also search by location, language and gender to find a doctor that is right for your patient. You will be able to browse physicians’ education and training background, as well as areas of expertise and certification.
     
  • Hopkins Access Line - The Johns Hopkins Access Line (HAL) is a one-call resource that helps physicians and other healthcare providers refer adult and pediatric patients into the Johns Hopkins Health System quickly.
