Referring a Cardiovascular Medicine Patient

To refer a patient to a Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) cardiologist, or to receive additional information about the Heart & Vascular Center, call the toll-free Physician Referral Service number:

  • 800-MD-TO-BWH / (800) 638-6294
  • You can also call the main Cardiovascular Medicine number: (857) 307-4000

These numbers are staffed 8am-5:30pm, Monday through Friday.

A trained coordinator will direct you to the physician with whom you wish to speak, as well as facilitate consultations and second opinions. After hours, you may leave a voicemail message. Your call will be returned promptly.

You can also use this secure form to request a new patient appointment with one of our physicians. Once the form is submitted, a trained coordinator will contact the patient to schedule an appointment. Referring physicians will be provided with the appointment details.

Lastly, with the newly-updated Physician Gateway, you can use this to make referrals for patients who have previously been seen at Mass General Brigham entities.

Transferring a Patient

Our cardiovascular access managers, Lisa Downey, MSN, NP-C, and Alison Gilmore, MSN, facilitate patient transfers and consultations to the Heart & Vascular Center. They work closely with the MDCONNECT patient transfer service, cardiovascular leadership, and referring physicians and hospitals to provide assistance with consultations and direct referrals to the Heart & Vascular Center. They can be reached at:

  • (617) 543-4170 (mobile)
  • (617) 732-5700, ID #12437 (pager)
