Referrals to Texas Children's Fetal Center

You can have confidence knowing that when you refer your patients to Texas Children's Fetal Center, they will not only receive the best possible fetal evaluation and treatment, but they will also be treated with care and compassion. We are staffed and supported for surgical or medical intervention 7 days a week, year-round.

In some cases, your patient’s insurance plan may require them to be referred to another site for an initial evaluation. If you’d like your patient to be seen by our specialists here at Texas Children’s Fetal Center®, we welcome an opportunity to provide an expert second opinion to help them make the most informed decisions. There is no charge for the initial review of records and ultrasounds, and most insurance companies cover second-opinion evaluations.
