Service Delivery

To deliver the best service possible, we need to have you provide relevant history forms with the submitted renal biopsies. Most importantly, we need up to date contact information for reaching you or contact information for those physicians who provide your coverage after business hours. We make every effort not to disturb you unnecessarily, but we need to be able to reach you with emergent diagnoses such as crescentic glomerulonephritis and/or transplant rejection and/or infection whenever such diagnoses are established. Please let us know if your office or personal telephone numbers and/or pagers have changed, so we many update our internal directories.
