Physician Access Services

Consultations. Referrals. Transfers. 


Physician to Physician Consultations

Timely communication with referring physicians is a top priority. Through our dedicated phone line for health care providers, you can speak directly with a UC San Diego Health physician — a trusted partner who respects your relationship with your patients. Together, we can help identify the best course of action, whatever that may be. 


If you need to talk with one of our physicians about a case or if you have any problems or concerns, please contact us at 855-543-0555.

Outpatient Referrals

Hospital Transfers

For outpatient referrals, call 855-543-0555 and our team will register and schedule your referred patient. You can also refer patients through an online referral form. You will receive follow-up communication (consultation notes, discharges, etc.), as well as access to our electronic medical record system.
