Clinic for Smell and Taste Disorders

With the exception of legal cases, all of our evaluations are done remotely via telemedicine using self-administered tests that are sent to you through the mail.   To be evaluated, you must have a written referral from a licensed medical provider in your state.  Because of licensing requirements, we are only able to accept patients from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Delaware, and Maryland at this time. 

Legal cases are performed in person at the Perelman Center for Advanced Medicine located at 3400 Civic Center Boulevard, South Pavilion, 3rd Floor, Philadelphia, PA 19104 and do not require a physician referral.  

To schedule a telemedicine appointment, telephone the office at 215-662-2980.   Once your appointment is secured and your case is not related to litigation, we will mail you a packet containing a detailed questionnaire and self-administered quantitative smell and taste tests.  After completion, you will send the smell and taste tests, along with the questionnaire and a copy of the physician’s referral, by UPS or FedEx (not US Post Office) to the following address:

Smell and Taste Center Clinic

After your materials are evaluated, including the test results, a telemedicine interview with you will be scheduled.
