How do I request Protocol Development?

Simply call 1-844-NEED-ECC (844-633-3322) and press '2'. Leave a voicemail with your name, hospital name and e-mail address for Dr. Raffe, which will be forwarded him. He will return your call or e-mail you to set up a time to discuss your anesthesia needs.

How do I decide which patient consult to use?

That will depend on the urgency of the case. If you need faster results, chose either the phone consultation or the <12 hour e-mail consultation.

How do I get a phone consultation?

Simply call our toll-free number at 1-844-NEED-ECC, and press '2' to be connected to the anesthesia voicemail. Your voicemail will be transcribed to both a text message and an e-mail, and sent immediately to Dr. Raffe.

How do I pick the level of E-mail consultation?

When you fill out the Anesthesia Submission Form, simply check the box next to the level of consultation that you desire.

I picked a 24 hour turnaround, and got an e-mail back in less than 6 hours! Do I have to pay for the 12 hour turnaround?

Nope! We charge you for the level you picked. If your consult takes less time, we don't charge you extra!

Do you need an account or a credit card on file?

No, you do not need an account or a credit card number to request a consultation. We will collect your hospital name, patient name, and contact information at the time of the consult. All consultations will be billed to your hospital at the end of the month. It's that easy.
