Thank you for considering me in referring your patient for review of their spinal condition. There is a basic system of triage so that patients with most discomfort or more urgent medical need are expedited through our system.
If you feel that your patient requires urgent review or admission, kindly call the emergency department at Pantai Hospital Kuala Lumpur on 03 22960999 and inform the medical officer on duty that you will be sending a patient in. If you need to contact me urgently at any time please call Pantai Hospital Kuala Lumpur on 03 2296 0888 and ask to be connected to my mobile phone. You could also call my nurse Miza at 012 381 4632.
If there is some capacity to review your patient in a semi-urgent or elective setting, please fax us a referral to 03 22960720 accompanied by any available imaging reports. We will then contact your patient and request some basic information, asking for a completed disability score and pain diagram. We then use this clinical material to allocate appointments streaming the most urgent cases forward.
I hope this helps in the most expeditious care of your patient. Thank you for your continued support of my practice
