Referring a patient

To schedule an appointment for a Sleep Center office visit, patients should contact 215-590-3749, Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m.

Although most patients should be seen first by one of our staff, to obtain more information about overnight sleep studies, please contact Mary Tate at 215-590-3703, Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m.

Please note: The sleep lab policy has been changed to allow some patients with straightforward medical conditions to proceed directly to the Sleep Lab, without being seen in the Sleep Clinic first. Please see the Sleep Lab Policy.

Scheduling a polysomnogram

Although most patients should be seen first by one of our staff, overnight polysomnograms can be ordered directly by a physician by completing a request form and precertification. These completed forms can be faxed to 215-590-2632 or sent to the Sleep Center on the 2nd floor of the main hospital. Review of the patient's clinical history will determine if the patient can come directly to the lab without an office visit. The patient will be contacted to schedule a polysomnogram or notified that an office visit is required.

To obtain forms or for more information about scheduling, please contact Mary Tate at 215-590-3703, Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.

Precertification

Precertification is required for an overnight polysomnogram. The patient's clinical history and insurance information must be completed by the ordering physician or department.

On-call person

For situations that may require an emergency request for a polysomnogram, the on-call pulmonary fellow can be reached on beeper 10122.
