  2. Mail or hand deliver the form to your physician and/or hospital where services have been provided to you.


Courtesy Reports

As a courtesy, National Jewish Health will provide you and your referring physician a copy of the dictated summary from your initial visit. It is important that you have the complete name, address, phone and fax number of the referring physician upon check-in of your appointment. Your referring physician information will be entered into the National Jewish Health computer system ensuring you and your physician receive a copy. Sometimes completion of your summary may take up to 30-days, particularly if specialized testing was done.  If you have not received your initial report after 30 days, you may call 303.398.1580.
