Information for Referring Physicians

Although most of the lab's patients come from internal referrals, we do perform PSGs at the request of outside physicians or other medical clinicians.

We are happy to perform PSGs on children or individuals who have disabilities.

Please note that there must be an identified provider who will be able to follow-up the results with the family. Per standard practice, we send the report to the referring clinician; we do not discuss or interpret the results with the patient or family. If your patient needs a neurology or other medical appointment in addition to the PSG, please let us know at the time you make the referral.

In order to refer a patient for an PSG, please contact Pat Rowe at (443) 923-9150 or She will provide a requisition form that must be filled out completely. If the patient has been seen at Kennedy Krieger previously, then there is nothing further that you need to do. We will let you know when the patient has been scheduled and will send the report when it is complete. If the patient has never previously been seen at Kennedy Krieger, then the parent or guardian will have to go through the intake process. The parent/guardian can contact Kennedy Krieger Intake at (443) 923-9400, or -- if you give us the patient's name and phone number -- our Intake Department will be happy to contact the family.

If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Rowe. She will put you in touch with the proper staff to make sure your questions are answered.
