What work-up is needed prior to the first appointment?

Please send any relevant materials not accessible through CHKD's Electronic Health Records (EHR) such as lab results, radiographs, and other accompanying reports. Some conditions require pre-consult work-up. Please contact our office at (757) 668-6550.

No pre-referral work-up is required for most conditions. No advanced imaging studies (i.e. CT or MRI) are needed before referral. If you have already done imaging studies, please have your patient/family hand-carry these images to their appointment if not available electronically. Please fax pertinent medical records to (757) 668-6544.
