How to Refer a Patient to the Neurosciences Center

  • If you are a provider, please fax a New Appointment Request Form (NARF) (PDFDOC) to 206-985-3121 or 866-985-3121 (toll-free).
  • For urgent referrals, call the clinical intake nurses at 206-987-2080 or, toll-free, 877-985-4637.
  • Pre-referral work-up is not required for most conditions. But if you have already done a work-up, EEG or other diagnostic studies, please fax along with the NARF.
  • Instead of fax, you can use eReferral, an online way to submit referrals and track referral status. Read about how to get started with eReferral.
  • Please send head growth charts for macrocephaly and babies less than 1 year of age being referred for neurosurgery.
  • If imaging studies (CT, MRI, X-rays) have been done, please upload to PowerShare. Other options are to have your patient hand-carry a disc to the clinic or mail a disc to:
    • Seattle Children’s Neurosciences Center
      MS OA.9.321
      PO Box 5371
      Seattle, WA 98145-5005
  • For transfers of care, please send all previous neurology records, diagnostic studies and pertinent notes.
