Emergency and After Hours Care
Our offices share resources to provide 24-hour physician coverage. Calls made post-regular business hours are fielded by answering service personnel. They contact the on-call physician who calls you directly.
The Walk-In Care Center is available on a walk-in basis for patients, including evenings and weekends, with x-ray and lab facilities on site.
In extreme emergencies, call 911 to reach your local rescue squad. At the hospital, inform the staff of your doctor's name so they can contact us.
Did you know your primary care physician may be able to provide your prenatal care? Several of our Family Medicine locations offer obstetric services, meaning you don’t have to transfer to a new practice or find a new doctor when you become pregnant.
These providers are able to provide all of the services you’ll need as your family grows, including prenatal care, labor and delivery, and postpartum care (including breastfeeding support and family planning).
