Our doctors collaborate with referring physicians to provide excellent patient care for the residents of central Pennsylvania and beyond. Approximately half of the patients who participate in our early phase clinical trials through the ExTRaCT program are from out of state.

You can refer patients - from infants to young adults - with cancer and blood diseases to Penn State Children’s Hospital Pediatric Hematology and Oncology.

When referring a patient, please have complete patient information, including social security number and insurance numbers, and fax to our office at 717-531-4789.

In order to provide the highest quality care and reduce the need to repeat tests, please also fax copies of all pertinent medical information, including lab results and X-rays.
