For Physicians

Here at the Division of Liver Diseases at Mount Sinai Health System, we understand that referring providers wish to follow their patients' treatment plans and still be involved in their care as much as possible. As the referring provider, you have the most insight into the patients' medical history, and we highly value your input. Collaboration and communication with referring physicians in a timely and efficient manner is our top priority. These lines of communication keep the patient's plan of care flowing. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to write mail, e-mail, or call our office.
