At the Johns Hopkins Center for Hypertension, our goal is to assist physicians in diagnosing and treating hypertensive patients. Patients can be referred simply for ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) with the results being sent directly to the referring physician. Alternatively, consultation with a hypertension specialist can be requested for one-time consultation or more intensive management of patients with resistant disease. Our physicians do not assume the primary care of your patients.
Referral to the Johns Hopkins Center for Hypertension may be appropriate for patients with the following conditions:
- Suspected white-coat hypertension
- Resistant hypertension
- Left ventricular hypertrophy with “normal” office blood pressure readings
- Suspected masked hypertension
If there are questions prior to referring a patient, please call the Center at 410-955-7611.
How to Refer
Please fill out the Physician Referral Form and fax along with recent medical records, demographic and insurance information to the Johns Hopkins Center for Hypertension at 410-367-2185. If the patient’s insurance company also requires a specific referral form, please fax that as well. Please allow 7 to 10 business days for medical review before an appointment can be made. We will contact the patient to schedule. Thank you.
