For Adult Patient Care

New Patients

The next step is to call the Neurology department at 855-644-6387, and a patient care coordinator will assist you in finding the most appropriate neurologist for your condition. Business Hours: 8:00 am to 4:30 pm.

For Referring Physicians

Consultations and Referrals

To request a consult from General Neurology or from a specific Neurology subspecialty clinic, please complete a Referral Form (PDF) indicating the appropriate subspecialty and Neurology coordinator and fax to the number on the form. Please note: It is especially important to use the correct private fax number for referrals, as clinics and doctor's offices are not always in the same place.  Patients referred to Neurology will need to have an insurance referral generated prior to their visit. No walk-in services are available. If you are a physician and are unsure of which subspecialty to refer a patient, or need general information, please contact the Neurology access nurse: Phone: 617-724-4504 or E-mail: neuroaccess@partners.org.
