UCLA Physician to Physician Access Line (P2P)

What is the UCLA Physician to Physician Access Line (P2P)?

Our dedicated access line – 1-844-4UCLADR (844-482-5237) – connects community physicians with an appropriate UCLA physician to assist with questions about your patient’s care and referrals.

Our goal is to connect you with the appropriate UCLA attending physician within 20 minutes.

If a specific physician is requested and not available, we will contact another equally qualified attending physician.

This service allows direct access to UCLA physicians who will advise and help coordinate care for your patients.  This is a 24/7 service that allows access to multiple UCLA specialties.
