Become a Patient

National Jewish Health Physician Line

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.

You can contact the Physician Line by phone at 1-800-NJC-9555 (1-800-652-9555) or via e-mail at [email protected], Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 4:30 pm Mountain time (10:00 am to 6:30 pm Eastern time).

What is 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.

When you call the Physician Line one of our specialized respiratory nurses will collect relevant patient information to ensure that your patient is appropriately scheduled. A nurse representative will communicate this information when your patient has been scheduled.
