Clinic Referrals

 

If you are a parent or guardian

Contact your child's primary care provider (PCP) and request they complete the referral process. Afterward, call (615) 936-5326 to schedule an appointment.

If you are a referring provider

Complete the referral process for your patient. For more information about how we evaluate obese children, as well as the various programs at Children's Hospital that can assist you at any stage of the evaluation or treatment process, please see our Obesity Resources page.

Unfortunately, many insurance companies do not recognize obesity as a medical condition. We recommend that your patient's family check with their insurance company about coverage details. If you perform fasting blood work prior to your patient's Clinic visit, this may reduce their out-of-pocket costs.

How to refer

1. Please fax the following information from the PCP's office to (615) 936-6710

  • Current patient demographics
  • Last well-child check up summary
  • Current relevant lab work if already done (ex. HgbA1C, insulin, glucose, LFTs, fasting lipid panel, vitamin D)
  • Growth charts

2. Advise the patient’s family to call (615) 936-5326 to schedule an appointment.
