TB Medical Consultation Process

TB control activities in Arizona are directed and administered by the State TB Control Officer. Each county nominates a physician(s) to serve as the County TB Control Officer, and these physicians are authorized to serve as Deputy State TB Control Officers. The Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) TB Control Section provides assistance to private practitioners, Deputy TB Control Officers, county health departments, etc., regarding care of TB patients. The State TB Control Officer will normally respond to requests for medical consultation within one day. The ADHS TB Control Section can be contacted at 150 N. 18th Avenue, Suite 110, Phoenix, AZ 85007, (602) 364-4750. Additional medical consultation is also available through the Heartland National TB Center at 1-800-839-5864.
