Thanks for thinking of us!
We would not be here but for the trust of the providers who refer patients our way.
During our transition to becoming Randall Children's Northwest Gastroenterology, our current phone and fax numbers will remain the same. Please continue faxing your referrals to 503-249-3782.
If you have any questions about how to best help your patient, interpret a lab or radiology finding or would like us to shepherd your patient through the registration and scheduling process, please call us! Every week, one of us is 'gently' scheduled to give us more time to care for our hospitalized patients and answer your questions.
Dial 503-281-5139 and ask for the "On-call doctor." (If your patient has already been working with one of us, ask for that doctor.)
If you just want to have a patient come to see us, here is what to do:
1) Give your patient our number and have them call us to register.
2) Send us whatever records you've got. Don't forget those test results that came in after your visit! If you want to warm the heart of a pediatric gastroenterologist, send him/her a growth chart.
3) If your patient's insurance requires a referral, please get it. We can't schedule the patient before the referral is done. We might even call to pester you about it.
Is your patient coming from greater than 100 miles away?
Are you pretty sure that your patient is going to need a GI procedure?
If you answered "Yes" to both of these questions, please call to discuss the case with our on-call doctor. We may be able to arrange for a consultation and a procedure during the same trip. We may also be able to help with lodging at the Ronald McDonald House East, one block from our office.
