What to do
1. Enroll in the San Francisco Health Network
2. Get a referral from your doctor
A "referral" is a written order for the test.
Talk with the doctor at your assigned health network clinic. They have to make a referral for you to get a specialty test.
Login to your MyChart account to ask for an appointment.
3. Prepare for your test
Your doctor will submit the request for your test with the appropriate specialist. You might see the order for your test in your MyChart patient portal.
To find out more about:
- Diagnostic tests at the hospital
- How to prepare
- How to find the right testing location
4. View your results
After your test, wait for results to show up in your MyChart patient portal.
Your doctor will usually leave a message and explain your results to you within the same timeframe.
If you need help understanding information from your test, leave a message for your clinic team.
