Referrals

The Rebecca MacDonald Centre for Arthritis and Autoimmune Disease  at Mount Sinai Hospital is a one-of-a-kind outpatient facility specializing in research and treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and related autoimmune diseases. Our centre provides a variety of specialized sub clinics serving more than 15,000 patients annually.

If you would like to be a patient at the centre, please have your referring physician’s office fax a referral to the specialty clinic or specific rheumatologist (see below). If diagnosis is not known, have your referring physician send a referral to general rheumatology and the referral will be triaged to the next available appointment. All physician wait times vary.

NOTE: Referrals for patients who suffer from chronic non-inflammatory rheumatic disorders such as osteoarthritis, mechanical neck and lower back pain, hypermobility/Ehlers Danlos or fibromyalgia are not being accepted at this time and we apologize for the inconvenience. Please note, we can accommodate corticosteroid injections if indicated.
