BECOMING A TRANSPLANT PATIENT

You may refer yourself directly to the program by calling the transplantation office at (201) 996-5849. Your hematologist/oncologist may refer you to one of the program's transplant physicians. You will be advised as to what steps are necessary to begin the consultation process. You may be asked to forward several types of medical information before your first appointment, including a medical history, treatment history, laboratory results, X-rays, CT scans, and/or MRI films. You must bring your insurance card and any referral forms or pre-certification information that your insurance carrier requires.
