Mito On Call is a collaborative effort between the United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation (“UMDF”) and the Mitochondrial Medicine Society (“MMS”). The Mito On Call service is solely designed to connect inquiring medical professionals with physicians having expertise in diagnosing and treating Mitochondrial Diseases (“expert physicians”).
Please do NOT send any private, patient-identifying information in your inquiry to UMDF. While we will not intentionally release such information or make such information public if sent to us, we cannot provide any assurance that the information will be kept private. Your inquiry should describe the problem or question with sufficient detail to allow UMDF and MMS to identify an expert physician to assist you. Please also include your contact information. The expert physician will contact you to discuss your question in more detail.
All federal, state and local laws must be strictly followed at all stages of this process. Patients and caregivers should not utilize the Mito On Call service but should instead use the Ask the Mito Doc forum.
Information provided under the Mito on Call program should be regarded as general guidance only. Ultimate responsibility for patient care lies with the inquiring medical professional. Neither UMDF nor MMS shall be liable for any action taken as a result of an inquiry sent through the Mito on Call service.
By sending an inquiry through the Mito on Call service, you are asserting that you are a medical professional in good standing over the age of 21, and that you will not violate any federal, state or local laws, applicable regulations, standards or guidelines established to protect patient privacy.
