For Healthcare Professionals
We value our partnerships with community physicians and other health care professionals. We work closely with you to make decisions and create care plans for your patients.
As part of a large academic health system, we are your regional resource for multidisciplinary pituitary care.We created a helpful guide on pituitary disorders. View the OHSU pituitary disorders guide.
Please print, complete and fax all sections of our online referral form to 503-346-6810. After an initial review, we call your patient to schedule an appointment immediately.
Your patient’s first visit with us
Our clinic is conveniently located at the OHSU Center for Health & Healing in the South Waterfront District, at the foot of the Portland Aerial Tram and offers ample parking (free to patients).
First visits include consultations with an endocrinologist and, if appropriate, a neurosurgeon. If dynamic testing is required, we will schedule that for the same day. If your patient needs a more extensive evaluation, we will schedule that in advance.
Our interdisciplinary team reviews
After your patient’s first visit, our endocrinologist and neurosurgeon quickly review initial laboratory and imaging results. Next, we contact you to discuss possible treatment plans, which may include clinical trials.
Any follow-up visits will be coordinated so your patient’s appointments happen on a single day. We’ll keep you updated on recommended next steps.
After initial treatment, we will follow up with your patient once a week for six weeks. We’ll arrange for additional laboratory tests as needed. Your patient will also receive a written treatment plan. We give your patient information about whom to call with questions, and we are always available for your questions or further consultation. Please call or email any time to discuss your patient’s care.
