For Referring Providers

Patient Care

If you are a provider seeking case consultation, or are concerned your patient may be a candidate for hospitalizationplease call the UCSF Pediatric Access Center at 877-822-4453 and request to speak with an on-call physician from the Eating Disorders ProgramFor more information about our inpatient service and admission criteria, you can refer to our Inpatient Medical Stabilization page.

If you are a provider seeking routine outpatient treatment, which may include multidisplinary assessments and treatment from our medical and psychology teams, we require a referral via APEX (internal), MD Link, or fax (415-353-4485). Please note, insurance authorization may need to be obtained by your office, dependent on a patient's plan. We can assist your staff, if necessary. 


We are committed to working with healthcare professionals of all disciplines to better serve our patients. We collaborate with community healthcare professionals and serve as a resource for healthcare professionals in the identification and care of these complex patients.
