Physician's Access Line

The Physician's Access Line (PAL®) is a physician-to-physician hotline provided by Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center (WFBMC) to practicing physicians throughout North Carolina and WFBMC's extended service and referral area.

PAL connects you to the full-time faculty physician of your choice or another specialist in that discipline via one of our Expediters.

Phone: 336-716-7654
Toll-free: 800-277-7654

PAL was designed to enhance the "shared care" of referred patients by facilitating ongoing communication between WFBMC faculty physicians and practicing physicians.

Physicians can use PAL for a variety of services. 

  • To consult with a specific physician or a faculty physician in a specific specialty or subspecialty
  • To arrange emergency air or ground patient transfers to the Medical Center
  • To arrange the referral of a patient to a specialist in the Medical Center
  • To obtain evaluation and progress reports for patients referred to the Medical Center
  • To obtain updates on drug therapies and medical procedures or treatments
  • To inquire about, or make a reservation for, continuing education programs
  • To remain informed about the referred patient's condition and any discharge plans
