Physician Line

Monday - Friday, 8:00 am to 4:30 pm MST (10:00 am to 6:30 pm EST)
[email protected]


In today’s healthcare environment, physicians are expected to manage more patients and achieve satisfactory outcomes with fewer resources than ever before. That’s why we introduced the Physician Line.

Developed exclusively for physicians and healthcare professionals, this toll-free line is your direct access to a specialized respiratory nurse who can facilitate your request for a patient referral  or physician-to-physician consultation. Nurses can also provide you with information about National Jewish Health programs, program outcomes and other departments.


How to Refer a Patient

When you call the Physician Line, one of our registered nurses will collect relevant medical and demographic information, then contact your patient to ensure he/she is appropriately scheduled into our specialized evaluation and treatment program.
