Physician Referral Services

The Department of Physician Referral Services at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia serves as your direct contact when you have questions, concerns or problems accessing or navigating one of our services.

The department is staffed by physician liaisons and support personnel who link pediatricians, family practitioners, pediatric and adult specialists and other healthcare providers to the Hospital's many programs and services. Each physician liaison is responsible for a specific geographic area, including our liaison for the Center for Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment. Visit our team page to find the contact information for each of our liaisons to initiate a personal visit to your office.
