New Patients Must Register First
Before making your first appointment you must register by calling the Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH) registration line at (866) 489-4056. The staff will walk you through the process of registering as a patient at BWH.
Schedule a New Patient Appointment
After registering, ask to be transferred to the Division of Thoracic Surgery to speak with one of our new patient coordinators who will ask for the following:
Basic information about yourself
Your health care insurance information
The address and phone number of your referring physician(s), if any
The nature of your illness or concern
Your patient coordinator will tell you the name of the surgeon you will be meeting with and the date, time and location for your appointment. The patient coordinator will also let you know what to bring with you to your appointment. If you have questions, the patient coordinator should be able to provide an answer or will put you in contact with the appropriate person.
