Depending on the treatment you require for your condition, you may need to meet with more than one physician in the Cerebrovascular Disease and Stroke Program.
Your primary care physician (PCP) can make a referral to the appropriate section by contacting the Physician Connection Center.
Please refer to your appointment letter for details on where you need to go for your appointment. In general, you will report to Level 3C for neurology and neurosurgery-type appointments, and report to Level 3L for radiology-type appointments.
If you are a current patient, you may use myDH to communicate securely with your providers, request or change appointments, review your medical record, and more.
