Information for Patients

Information for PatientsAs one of the country's leading university-based institutions, the University of Rochester Medical Center is proud to provide our patients with treatment options from surgeons who are at the frontiers of their field.

To begin the process of receiving treatment, your physician will need to provide you with a referral to see one of our surgeons. When your physician's office calls us with your referral, we will schedule your appointment with one of our surgeons at that time. Your physician's office will then contact you with the date, time, and location of your appointment.


For more information on local accommodations for family and guests, please see the Patients & Families section.
