Refer a Patient

How to Refer a Patient to the Surgery Program

  • If you are a provider, please fax a New Appointment Request Form (NARF) (PDFDOC) to 206-985-3121 or 866-985-3121 (toll free).
  • Pre-referral work-up is not required for most conditions. But if you have already done a work-up, please fax along with the NARF.
  • Instead of fax, you can use EpicCare Link, an online way to submit referrals and track referral status.  
  • If imaging studies (CT, MRI, X-rays) have been done, please upload to PowerShare. Another option is to have your patient hand-carry a CD to the clinic.
  • For phone referrals, call the clinical intake nurses at 206-987-2080 or, toll-free, 866-987-2080.
