Inpatient Telephone Consults

An Inpatient Telephone Consult with a Mayo Clinic specialist is an informal telephone conversation, provider to provider, regarding the treatment of a hospitalized patient that requires semi-urgent to urgent intervention.

Mayo Clinic offers this concierge service within the following specialties. Requests for other specialties can be facilitated as needed.

  • Critical Care Medicine
  • Cardiovascular Medicine
  • Infectious Disease
  • Gastroenterology
  • Neurology
  • Pulmonary Medicine

This interaction does not include the exchange of medical records, nor is the discussion documented in the patient’s medical record.

Each completed Inpatient Telephone Consult counts as the equivalent of an eConsult request.
