Physician Liaisons

Our physician liaisons travel throughout Alabama and into areas of Georgia, Mississippi, and the Florida Panhandle to meet with referring physicians and their office staff. As licensed RNs, these liaisons are able to discuss clinical issues with physicians and assist in the referral process. Liaisons help support open lines of communication between the referring community and UAB Medicine, providing referring physicians with the most up-to-date information on research, technologies, physicians, and services at UAB. To speak with a physician liaison, contact UAB Physician Services at 205.934.6890, or email physicianservices@uabmc.edu.
