How to refer yourself, your child, or your patient to the Fit for Healthy Weight Clinic
The best way to obtain a patient consultation is for your primary-care physician to obtain insurance authorization and fax a referral form with lab results to our office.
Once a clinic visit is authorized, UCLA Physician Referral Services will contact you to schedule your initial appointment. You will need to fill out a registration form before your initial appointment, and mail/fax or bring the completed form to your initial appointment.
During your initial consultation, you will be evaluated by a pediatrician specializing in nutrition, a psychologist, a dietitian and other subspecialists as needed. In general, we request five follow-up clinic visits.
For Venice Family Clinic Providers wishing to refer a patient to the Fit Clinic at Simms Mann Health and Wellness Center, please use this Referral Form. Have the patient complete the registration form (Spanish language registration form available here) and place it in the patient's chart. Call the Simms Mann Coordinator to set up appointment, and if you cannot reach the coordinator, fax the form to her at 310-829-4632.
