How to Refer a Patient

Appointment availability

Updated August 2019

We are accepting new referrals.

If you are unsure about whether to refer your patient, please call our Clinical Intake Nurses at 206-987-2080

Referral requirements

We ask that providers submit a referral that is complete. A complete referral helps us schedule an appointment for your patient in a timely manner and match them with the right specialist and clinic location. It ensures a productive and smooth first appointment for your patient. It also helps us assess the needs of our community and plan to have the capacity to meet those needs. 

Please include:

  • Referring provider’s name, phone, fax number and the referral coordinator’s email address so that we may contact you if additional information is needed
  • Complete demographic information for the patient, found in the top portion of our New Appointment Request Form (NARF)
  • Patient’s clinical records related to the reason for your referral
  • Growth charts/curves that are pertinent to the referral
  • Pertinent laboratory testing reports
  • Pertinent radiology testing reports
  • Previous specialty evaluations for second opinions or transfers of specialty care
