Physician Access Services

One number gives you access.

Timely communication with our patients’ referring physicians is one of our top priorities. We’re continuing to improve this communication through our Physician Access Service. This dedicated line allows health care providers to speak directly with one of our physicians at UC San Diego Health System. This line gives you real access to a fellow physician – a trusted partner who respects your relationship with your patients. Our goal is to help you determine the best course of action, whatever that may be.
