Appointments and Directions

Patients from the United States or with U.S. Health Insurance Coverage

A physician referral letter is required for all new patient appointments at the Johns Hopkins Vasculitis Center. Please have this faxed or mailed to our Center along with all relevant medical records.

Please forward the results of previous medical evaluations. In particular, the following information is required:

  • Referral letter from your physician
  • Summary letter from your doctor and/or hospital discharge summaries
  • Recent laboratory results
  • Biopsy slides or reports
  • Results of radiology studies

This “information gathering” is an important component of your visit. It allows the Vasculitis Center’s physicians to examine and review relevant information before your scheduled visit. This preparation greatly speeds the development of an effective plan for medical care. If time permits, we will send you a questionnaire to fill out before your appointment.

This information may be sent in advance of the appointment to:
