Appointments and Referrals

  • Part of the appointment scheduling process is to make sure we participate in patient’s insurance plan. Johns Hopkins participates with most PPO plans. If the patient’s insurance plan is an HMO, the patient will likely need to obtain a referral from a primary care physician. If we are unsure of participation in the insurance plan, we may ask you to fax the front and back of the insurance card to 410-614-2297.

  • Before an appointment, you will receive an appointment packet including a questionnaire and directions. Please return the filled questionnaire the day of the appointment.

    Before your visit, please make sure that all medical records, test results and referrals have been sent to us. We need to have the referral on file at least seven days before the appointment. If you or your primary care doctor plan to fax these documents to our office, please fax to 410-614-2297:
    c/o {Your Doctor’s Name}
    Subject: Records & Test Results To Be Reviewed for {Patient’s last name}

    If mailing these documents, please mail to:

    {Your Doctor’s Name}
    The Johns Hopkins Hospital
    Division of Pediatric Neurology
    David M. Rubenstein Child Health Building, Suite 2158
    200 N. Wolfe Street
    Baltimore, MD 21287

    Please bring any films (MRI or CT scans) with you to the appointment.

  • Please call to speak with a doctor about the patient and the reason for their referral. Contact information can be found by clicking on the physicians name on our team page.

    Please send records, referral, parent’s phone number and copies of the office notes to be reviewed by our team to:

  • Most of our procedures do not require much preparation. If your visit requires an MRI with anesthesia, a sedation screening sheet will need to be completed by the doctor ordering the test. The parents of the patient will receive guidelines for the anesthesia. We ask that parents bring a list of all medications and clear fluids for the patient after the procedure as well as a stroller or wheelchair for small children.

    If a referral or insurance authorization is required for a procedure, please send the required documents to 410-614-2297 ahead of the appointment.
