Appointments and Referrals
Request an appointment for the Fetal Center at Vanderbilt
For referring physicians
You can have confidence knowing that when you refer your patients to the Fetal Center at Vanderbilt they will receive the best possible fetal evaluation and treatment and be treated with the utmost care and compassion.
Please print, complete, and sign, the Request for Physician Consultation Form. Fax it to us at (615) 322-0370.
Your doctor may refer you to our center if both of these are true:
- You are pregnant.
- Your doctor or nurse practitioner believes your unborn baby may have a health problem, or has given your unborn baby a qualifying diagnosis.
If you wish to be seen by our team, please ask your primary obstetrician to contact us. Your doctor or nurse practitioner must refer you by signing and faxing to us the Request for Physician Consultation. Your medical records must be included with the request.
Once we receive these materials, we will schedule an appointment for you. Please call your insurance company before your first appointment to determine the amount of our services they will pay. If you make your own appointment with us without a referral, you will pay out-of-pocket for your visit. Our billing staff will discuss payment options with you.
Your visit to the Fetal Center
The Fetal Center at Vanderbilt offers appointments Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.
Once you are referred to us, we will schedule your appointment to provide your consultations in a single clinic setting. During each of these consultations, you will speak with medical providers who specialize in the care of babies with the same diagnosis your baby has been given. We will do our best to schedule your appointments in a timely manner and with consideration to your needs. You may require additional testing such as a fetal MRI or fetal echocardiogram, both of which are offered on different floors. If this is the case, we will guide you every step of the way.
We will send you a letter with your appointment date and time, directions to our center, and parking information.
We are located on the 9th floor of Doctors' Office Tower at Children's Hospital. Check in at the video screen, and we'll take it from there.
