Ask a Librarian

A free service open to everyone

Ask Us. Our medical librarians are here to help you find answers to your health-related questions.

Whatever your health care or medical question may be, we can help you find answers. Please complete the form below and we will use a variety of the most current, scientifically based resources to answer your specific questions. We will send you information tailored to you. 

This is a free service open to all. You don't need to be a Stanford patient to use this service. 

We cannot take a list of symptoms and offer a diagnosis nor do we offer advice or recommendations.

It is the responsibility of the submitter to ensure that they do not submit any confidential medical information as this is a non-secure email form.

If the form does not display in your browser, or you would like to contact us directly, please call (650) 725-8400 or email us:
