Making an Appointment with UPMC Pancreatic Cancer Center
To schedule an appointment, call 1-888-623-PANC (7262), 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Our telephone system is automated, allowing you convenient access to the doctor of your choice. If you are uncertain as to which surgeon would be best for your condition, our staff will assist you in making this decision.
Calls made to the office on weekends, holidays, or after 5 p.m. on weekdays are covered by our answering service. If you have an urgent medical concern, the answering service will promptly notify the on-call surgeon who will return your call as soon as possible.
Patients may self refer, but should bear in mind that most insurance plans require a referral before scheduling an appointment with a specialist.
If your insurance requires a referral, please contact your physician and ask him or her to call our scheduling office prior to your office visit. If you do not obtain approval from your insurance carrier before you are admitted, the insurance company may not cover the services.
