Referral Checklist

Your patients will need to gather pathology, imaging and medical records if their breast images and biopsies were done outside of the BIDMC system. We have prepared a checklist that you and your patients can use to gather all necessary materials before the first appointment.

Dictated Note and Care Map

Following your patient's visit in the BreastCare Center, we will forward to you a copy of the clinical dictated note and a copy of the care map we give to the patient. We are available by phone and e-mail to discuss patient progress and care. We are committed to staying in close touch with you regarding your patient's status via letters, personal phone calls, fax and e-mail.
