Information for Referring Physicians

The Boston Univeristy Vasculitis Center is committed to maintaining our reputation for high-quality care of patients with vasculitis.  Through numerous referrals from colleagues throughout the Northeastern United States and beyond, all the practitioners in our center have gained outstanding experience in the evaluation and care of patients with vasculitis. 

We aspire to maintain our reputation for outstanding service, quality, and collegiality.  We can almost always see a patient within a few days if the referring physician feels that this is indicated; we are readily available for discussions by phone or email, whether we have seen the patient or not; and we will always communicate our findings and suggestions to you.  We are happy to accommodate your preferences for ongoing care, i.e. to provide a one-time opinion, or to assume care, or for any co-management strategy as you feel is appropriate.

We are established members of the national and international research communities in vasculitis, and as such, have led or participated in all major US-based multi-center clinical trials in vasculitis for over a decade.  We also continue to develop research efforts unique to our institution.

Please contact our administrator, Jackie Chapski, at 617-414-2500 (fax 617-414-2510) to initiate a new referral.
