Make An Appointment
We welcome your questions and referrals. If you would like more information about a referral or evaluation, or would like to speak to someone by phone, please contact:
Care Management Office: Intake Department
Toll-Free Referral: (888) 554-2080
Local Referral: (443) 923-9400
You must call the number above and complete an Intake in order to have your child seen within the CARD outpatient clinic.
Once the Intake process is completed, your child’s information will be sent to the CARD outpatient clinic. Additional information may be needed in order to complete the intake process. After your intake is reviewed, you will receive a letter detailing the services for which your child has been recommended.
Please be advised that most of our services do involve a wait time, and that wait time will vary based on the services recommended for each child. One of our Care Center Specialists will contact you to schedule a future appointment when your child’s name is next on our waitlist.
We are experiencing a significant increase in volume of new patient referrals and are working diligently to schedule every child as soon as possible. However, due to the increase in referrals, our timeline for scheduling your appointment may be subject to change.
After your appointments are scheduled, please download this form:
