Making an appointment with our Spine doctors.

We have recently updated the way patients can request appointments with one of our MGH Orthopaedic Spine doctors. All patients need a Medical Consult form filled out by their primary care doctor. We have created a simple form that your primary care doctor can fill out online and submit on your behalf.

This streamlines our referral process and ultimately makes it quicker and easier for our patients to get appointments.

A Medical Consult requires the following three items:

  1. Your referring doctor needs to complete and submit this short Medical Consult form on your behalf.
  2. Your doctor will need your MGH Medical Record Number (MRN). If you do not have a MRN, please call 1-866-211-6588 to register and obtain one. We cannot make any appointment for you if you do not have a MRN.
  3. Your doctor will need to enter your preferred contact phone number and your email address in the form. This is how we will be contacting you regarding your appointment.

Send the link to this page ( to your doctor along with your medical record number, preferred contact phone number and email address. Once we receive your completed consult form, we will contact you to schedule your appointment.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. This streamlined process is the quickest way to request an appointment with our doctors.

Thank you for your patience.
