We value our relationship with you, your patients, and your office staff. We work hard to keep you informed of your patients' care by providing detailed reports, from diagnosis to treatment and follow-up. Our goal is to provide you with prompt service and communication for the patients that you refer to us.
Patients with urgent medical or surgical needs are given priority in the University of Minnesota Physicians appointment system. Appointments for non-urgent problems are scheduled several days to several weeks in advance.
University of Minnesota Physicians will, to the fullest extent of its resources, accept emergency cases on the same or next day. Patients requiring hospitalization may be referred to an emergency room for evaluation.
