call (someone) right back

Calling someone "right back" means calling them very soon after they called you.

You can call someone "right back" if you missed their call, or if you spoke to them but had to stop the call before your conversation was completely finished.

You can also say "call (someone) back", which sounds slower than calling them "right back":

Rina, let me call you back later this afternoon.
