New Patients, Consultations and Second Opinions

To make an appointment, call 410-328-6080, Monday through Friday.

Whether you have a physician referral or are self-referring for a second opinion, our scheduling team will be able to set you up with the right specialist for you. An initial consultation can be scheduled within 48-72 hours of your call.

Referrals

To refer a patient, call 410-328-6080, Monday through Friday. This fax number is 410-328-1914, and is monitored Monday through Friday. Patient referral authorization information may be faxed to the billing office at 410-706-6705. 

We work closely with the patient's primary care physician, oncologist or other specialist who makes the referral. Our team has experience in combined care and we work with other doctors — both from inside our organization and outside — to provide the best treatment plan possible.

What to Expect

We may collect information from your referring physician such as demographic information, details about your treatment so far, insurance and medical records. Or we may ask you to bring this information.

Your first appointment will be an initial consultation with a radiation oncologist to discuss your cancer treatment options, review the benefits and side effects, and answer questions about radiation therapy.

If you and your radiation oncologist decide that external beam radiation therapy is best, learn more about the external radiation process.

Initially, you may be asked to arrive early for your appointment. You can expect to spend between one and a few hours at UMGCCC for each treatment. In most cases, you should be able to drive yourself home after treatment.

Care partners may attend your initial consultation appointment  and your exam room appointments with you if you wish. Please view the current visitor policy before your visit.

Complimentary Parking

The Department of Radiation Oncology offers free valet parking, which is available at the main entrance of the hospital, 22 S. Greene St., Baltimore, MD 21201. You may also park for free at one of the visitor parking garages.

When you arrive, you and any care partner(s) will be asked to check in at the first floor main hospital desk directly inside the front doors. You will then be directed to the Department of Radiation Oncology on the ground floor, where the front desk can provide your complimentary parking or valet ticket.
