Urology

  • Referral Information

    When you call with a referral to the pediatric urology team at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, make sure necessary tests are scheduled before your patient’s first appointment. This allows our physicians to evaluate the patient and the tests at the first appointment.

    The call center will help your staff or your patient and family schedule the tests. For your records, we will send you a confirmation letter regarding the recommendations and treatment for your patient.

    Physician Priority Link

    Physician Priority Link (PPL) is a telephone hotline provided by Cincinnati Children’s specifically for our referring physicians: 513-636-7997 or 1-888-636-7997.

    PPL is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Simply ask for the pediatric urologist on call. The pediatric urologist will be available to take your call within two minutes. Physician Priority Link operators can put you in contact for referrals and consultations, as well as provide you with quick access to the full spectrum of specialists and services at Cincinnati Children’s.

    How to Make a Referral to the Urogenital Center

    Health Care Professionals

    Caregivers may refer a patient by calling the Urogenital Center at 1-513-636-7035 or 1-800-344-2462, ext. 6-7035, and asking to speak with a nurse specialist, who can begin the intake process.

    Families

    Parents or patients may self-refer or make an appointment at the suggestion of your child’s doctor by calling the Urogenital Center at 1-513-636-7035 or 1-800-344-2462, ext. 6-7035.  You will be referred to a nurse specialist to begin discussing your child’s history and concerns. You will be asked to send us  medical records and insurance information.  Our billing office will check your insurance coverage and discuss  financial issues. When we receive the medical records, the nurse will discuss your child’s condition with our doctors, who will recommend a plan for evaluating your child. The nurse will call you to discuss the recommendations. If you decide to go ahead with the evaluation and have completed financial arrangements, we will  schedule an appointment. While an evaluation may require a  stay of several days, we make every effort to schedule your appointments in a coordinated and concise manner. Often a patient may need to be seen by several specialists during a visit. If your child does need to see other doctors, we will also help coordinate those appointments.
