Our transplant pulmonologists are committed to helping transplant patients receive as much care as possible close to their homes. Our goal is to return each transplant patient to his or her primary care physician or referring physician after surgery for follow-up care. We provide detailed discharge summary notes to referring physicians, and can be reached easily to answer questions about a patient's condition.
Likewise, we are available for consult with referring physicians. We can help physicians determine when a patient with advanced lung disease might be a candidate for lung transplant or other therapy.
For lung transplant consultation or referrals, please contact Sarah Simon, lung transplant data coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 843-792-4773. Calls to this number are answered Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. All non-emergent calls received after 4:30 p.m. will be returned the following business day.
MUSC's dedicated consultation telephone service, MEDULINE, is also available for direct, convenient access to physicians 24 hours a day, seven days a week at 843-792-2200 or toll-free at 800-922-5250.
