Physician and Service Referral Program

Cedars-Sinai operates the Physician and Service Referral Program (1-800-CEDARS-1) for physicians who are on our medical staff. There are no charges to the physicians or to the callers for this service. The call agents give referrals on a rotating basis, but the final selection of a physician is based on the caller's needs and preferences.

Our Call Center

Cedars-Sinai's call center answers all the calls to 1-800-CEDARS-1, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

New Participants

Any physician with privileges at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center can participate in the Physician and Service Referral Program. Participation is completely voluntary, so you must complete an enrollment form to receive referrals through this service.

Current Participants

If you are currently enrolled in the program and would like to continue receiving referrals, you must complete a new enrollment form when it is offered to you, even if there are no changes. The form is standardized to streamline the database and provide callers with accurate information.
