For Eye Care Physicians
Physician to physician communication
The easiest way for community physicians to contact a physician at the UK HealthCare Department of Ophthalmology is by calling the toll-free UK MDs number. UK MDs allows you to consult with UK clinical staff regarding routine or difficult diagnoses, discuss new or alternative treatment modalities, make patient referrals, follow patient progress and discuss post-discharge care. When you call, a physician liaison will quickly route your call to the physician, department or division you request.
To contact the UK MDs referral service, call toll free 800-888-5533 or in Lexington, call 859-231-9922. UK MDs welcomes your comments, requests or suggestions on how we may better serve you.
The centralized fax service allows the referring physician to send an exact copy of a document to the UK HealthCare's clinical and hospital departments for immediate delivery. Patient face sheets, insurance info and other pertinent patient can be sent via email or fax. The toll-free fax number is 800-888-2693, or in Lexington 859-323-4607.
