Wiser about Referrals to our center

Sarcoidosis is one of the main focuses of the AMC and patients are being treated in a multidisciplinary team. Patients can be referred by other specialists like the lung doctor, the neurologist, or the general practitioner for advice on additional diagnostics or treatment. But also patients with a history of sarcoïdosis with additional questions can be referred. It is important to refer to the specialist with expertise on the organ that is most severely involved.

Because it is of uttermost importance to us to have an overview of your sarcoidosis related medical history, a referral from your general practicioner or specialist is essential. Also, please make sure that the referral includes previous sarcoidosis related medical correspondence and previous conducted ancillary investigations including imaging studies. It is possible that you will be contacted by our secretariat before your first visit to the AMC to give consent for us to request additional medical information from other hospitals, to give us complete overview.

In sarcoidosis multiple organ systems can be involved. Therefore, it is important that you are referred to the right specialist with an expertise concerning the involved organ. When you mainly have complaints of the lung you will be seen by the pulmonary medicine department, while when the neurological symptoms are predominant you will be seen by the neurology department. Consult with your general practicioner or specialist to refer you to the right speciality.
