The colon and rectal surgeons at Springfield Clinic care about your health. We encourage you to contact us if you have any questions or concerns, need to find the colon and rectal specialist most appropriate for your condition, or would like to schedule an appointment. We look forward to hearing from you.
During standard office hours:
Monday - Friday, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm CST
Contact the Colon & Rectal Department by phone at 217.528.7541 or 800.444.7541 (toll-free)
Call the same number and ask for TeleNurse, Springfield Clinic's round-the-clock medical help line. The registered nurses taking your call can help answer your questions and offer medical advice. They may contact your physician, if necessary.
Your opinion matters:
We want your experience to be excellent and we hope you will let us know if you've received anything less. You may contact our Department Chairman, James Thiele, MD, or ask for extension 1. A representative will assist you with any concerns you may have.
