The University of Kansas Health System allows you to consult with a physician in any department 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Physician consultation instructions

Call 913-588-5862 to request to speak to a physician. A representative will assist you and will collect the following information:

  • The name of the physician you would like to speak with. You may also speak with someone on call.
  • A brief description of the reason for your call.
  • The name and date of birth of a mutual patient (if applicable).
  • A call back number in case the call is disconnected.

Once this information is obtained, the representative will put you in touch with the appropriate physician. If a physician is unavailable for any reason, you may ask to speak with a nurse or on-call physician.
