Adult Clinic Services

Adult CF Clinic 

The Cystic Fibrosis clinic is located on the 5th floor of The University of Kansas Physicians Orthopedics and Medical Pavilion in Pod A. The Pulmonary and Endocrinology clinics share a Pod, which is convenient for patients who also manage CF-related Diabetes. Patients are given a mask to wear in community areas upon checking in at the front desk. Once checked in, a nurse takes each patient’s weight and height, and escorts them to a private room where vital signs are obtained. Each patient will see each CF team member at every visit if time allows and/or if they have special needs to address with that provider. Clinic visits usually last 60-90 minutes at a time.
