Referring Physicians

Referring a Patient for Transplant Care

Every year, hundreds of physicians refer their patients to the Ochsner Multi-Organ Transplant Institute, ranked #1 in the Nation in Medical Excellence for Organ Transplants in 2017 by CareChex. As a referring physician, you will be kept abreast of your patient’s care every step of the way. After faxing the Physician Referral Form below, please feel free to call to offer input or get your questions answered.

Follow-up Care

Ochsner provides consistent follow-up information to all referring physicians regarding each patient you direct to our care. You’ll receive follow-up information in writing as well as by phone after your patient's transplant. The nature of the written correspondence correlates to the type of visit or procedure performed (i.e., initial clinic visit, routine follow-up clinic visit or hospital discharge).

Your patients will eventually be referred back to your care with periodic follow-up visits to Ochsner. The transplant team continues to monitor for transplant-related complications and regulates maintenance immunosuppression.
