For Referring Physicians
Patient Referrals Welcome
The Division of Podiatry welcomes referrals. Continuity of care is of particular importance to BIDMC podiatry providers. The referring physician is always a key member of the care team and is consistently updated on the patient's progress.
Well-Coordinated Patient Care
BIDMC podiatrists stay in close contact and share test results, diagnoses, care plans, treatment outcomes and follow-up recommendations. Such close relationships with referring physicians ensure well-coordinated patient care and an easy transition back to the care of referring physicians.
