Referring Physicians

Thank you for your interest in referring your patient to the Mount Sinai – National Jewish Health Respiratory Institute. We are proud to be collaborating with you to provide the best possible care for your patient, and are happy to hear from you via phone, email, or fax.

  • We understand your need for timely service and follow-up communications regarding your patient’s results.
  • We will let you know when your patient is scheduled for an appointment and provide a detailed visit summary to you within one week of the visit.
  • We will take care to reinforce your relationship with the patient.
  • If it is best for your patient management, you may order diagnostic testing only without a patient referral for a physician visit to our Respiratory Institute. Test results will be available to you no later than 48-72 hours after the visit.

In order to schedule the referral appointment, please fill out a referral form.
