For Referring Physicians

Using Georgetown's Physician Access Program

Access to Resources
Georgetown Physician Access puts you in direct contact with Georgetown University Hospital resources. The registered nurses can connect you with a faculty member you identify for consultations and referrals. Or they can assist you in selecting an appropriate specialist. If you wish, the Physician Access nurses can contact the specialist for a telephone consultation or take a message and ensure the faculty physician returns your call.

Appointment Scheduling
The referral nurse counselor can schedule appointments for your patients with the specialist you select. The nurse will request the name, date of birth, and telephone number of the patient and a brief description of the reason for referral. The nurse will arrange the appointment (within the requested time frame), call the patient to confirm the appointment, send out a letter confirming the appointment with maps and other information as appropriate and notify your office when the arrangements are complete.

The nurse counselors will answer questions you and your patients have about special Georgetown services and programs or refer you to Georgetown staff who can provide the information you need.
