Patients are referred to the Johns Hopkins Medicine Department of Radiation Oncology at the Johns Hopkins Health Care and Surgery Center by their physician. To make an appointment, call 301-896-2012. Our staff will mail you some forms to complete prior to your visit. On the day of your appointment, bring those forms, your insurance card, picture ID, and your referral. Your first visit will include a 1½ hour consultation with one of our radiation oncologists. If it is determined that you will be treated with radiation, you'll be scheduled for a simulation (45 minutes to 1 hour), either that day or for another time. Treatment usually begins within a week.
