Should I call him?

Now that I have your attention with the clickbait title, I set up a coffee chat with an MD. He confirmed the time but never replied to me asking how to contact him; is it fine for me to use the phone number he has in his email signature and just call at the time? Catching them off guard seems a little rude but I don't have an alternative

Yes just call them and introduce yourself again. Maybe follow up with a calendar invite so he doesn't accept another meeting

Call him then. If no answer, wait 5min and then email him and say: hey wanted to follow up and see if you're still free to chat this afternoon/morning/etc. Then next time you set something up, say I'll call you then or is the mobile number in you sig the best way to reach you etc.
