Get Started

Ready to request your remote medical second opinion from Johns Hopkins Urology? Follow these eight steps to get started today.

Step 1: Talk to your physician

Discuss with your physician why you would like to have a second opinion from Johns Hopkins Urology. After reviewing our terms & conditions, print and complete the Consultation Request Form and have your physician sign it. We are unable to provide this service without your physician's acknowledgement and permission.

We cannot offer medical second opinions to patients who are residents of or have current mailing addresses in Iowa, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, and North Dakota. If you are a resident of one of these states and wish to have a second opinion from a Johns Hopkins urologist, we are happy to assist you in making an appointment to be seen at one of our offices in the Baltimore metropolitan area. Please call 410-464-6555.

Step 2: Gather your medical records

Review the Patient Checklist with your physician to determine which medical records are appropriate to send to Johns Hopkins Urology and obtain a copy of those medical records and the reports of any diagnostic studies you have undergone in the course of being treated for your condition. In addition to the reports, it would be helpful to have copies of your slides or films.

Please note that your physician's office and/or hospital may charge a fee for providing you a copy of your records. Johns Hopkins Urology is not responsible for fees charged by other health care providers in the assembling of your medical records for a medical second opinion.

Step 3: Fill out the Patient Intake Form

Complete the online Patient Intake Form When completed, print and include it with your applicable medical records.

Step 4: Fill out the Medical History Questionnaire

Complete the Medical History Questionnaire and include it with your applicable medical records.

Step 5: Fill out the Patient Disclaimer Form

Carefully review, date and sign the Patient Disclaimer Form

Step 6: Fill out the Payment Authorization

If payment authorization is not provided, Johns Hopkins Urology is not responsible for fees charged by other health care providers in the assembling of your medical records for a medical second opinion.
