Temporary Closure to Referrals by non-FHC clinic providers

Due to the Family Health Center’s implementation of eCW starting on June 23, we are temporarily closed for referrals to the Procedure Clinic through August 31, 2014.

If you have an urgent referral between June 23-August 31, please contact Dr. Rick McKinney directly via e-mail at rmckinney@fcm.ucsf.edu with reason for urgent appointment. The urgent referrals will be reviewed and approved by Dr. McKinney, but be aware that his ability to add on patients will be extremely limited.

In the meantime, we recommend utilizing SFGH-based specialty clinics to address some of the procedural needs of your primary care patients.

We will resume referrals starting on September 1, 2014. There will be a new process of making referrals for clinics that currently use eCW. We will plan to send out a memo with details to follow about the new referral process.
