Your patients are important to you, and we know it takes a great deal of trust to recommend a specialty care provider.

When you refer your patient, you can be confident knowing it’s our priority to provide advanced services to moms and babies, and to serve as a resource for maternal and newborn health care providers throughout the region.

How do I refer a patient?

High-Risk Referrals

If you are referring a high-risk patient, please complete the Maternal-Fetal Medicine Referral form. You can return the form to us at:

Fax: 909-558-0739 or 909-558-0384

Care Criteria

Your patient may qualify for a consult or care from a perinatologist if she or her baby have any number of pre-existing or pregnancy-related conditions, such as:

  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Pulmonary disease
  • Fetal anomalies
  • Fetal arrhythmia
  • Repeated miscarriage
  • Pregnant with triplets or greater
  • Other high-risk conditions

We thoroughly screen each referral we receive to determine the appropriate plan of care and do not automatically accept patients based on the referral. It is very important that prenatal care is continued until it is determined that the patient qualifies for high risk care AND is scheduled with one of our physicians. Patients should not be directed to contact our office prior to receiving the determination of acceptance.

Neonatal Transport Referral

If your newborn patient needs a higher level of care, our specially trained neonatal transport team is available 24/7 to provide medical, nursing and respiratory care while transporting the baby to the NICU at Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital.

Call our NICU Transport Team Transfer Center 800-865-5862

  • Purpose of the transport/consult
