Can I contact my physician after hours? And how?
Because illness and injury do not respect regular office hours, we will be available by phone after hours and on holidays for urgent needs. For non-emergent situations, you may also use our secure patient portal to access your medical record and send a message to your physician. For true emergencies, please don’t hesitate to proceed to the nearest Emergency Room.
Worsening by the Week:
If any given symptom is worsening by the week, it probably can wait for a normal visit, within a business day or so.
Worsening by the Hour:
If worse by the hour, it may need emergent attention – call us if you’re really not sure.
Worsening by the Minute:
If truly worse by the minute, call 911.
