A COVID-19 Message for Our Referring Providers
With the current impact of COVID-19, CHOC is making every effort to keep our patients safe while still providing the medical care they need. We now offer telehealth appointments, allowing your patients to have virtual visits with our pediatric specialists using a smartphone, tablet or computer. For those who need to be seen in person, our offices and health centers are open with additional safety measures in place. To refer a patient, please call the Patient Access Center at 888-770-2462.

CHOC understands the negative financial impact that COVID-19 may have created for your patients’ families. We are here to help and provide support. If your patients’ families have recently lost or do not have medical insurance, they can call CHOC Family Financial Resource Center at 714-509-8600.
