Urgent Medical Need

If you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, please call 911. The hospital will contact us.

If you develop an acute medical problem which is not an emergency, but needs urgent attention, please call the office and we will work you into the schedule as soon as possible. There may be a delay after you arrive, but you will be seen.

After Hours

Our physicians see office patients between 8:30 am and 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday. They rotate on-call schedules during evenings and weekends. If you have an urgent medical need after hours, call the office at (912) 692-2000. Our answering service will forward your information to the on-call physician. If the physician does not call you back within 20 minutes, please call the answering service again. Continuity of care is always maintained under the direct supervision of your physician.

Patient Phone Calls

When you call, you will be directed by our phone system to the appropriate clinical area. If the clinical staff is either on the phone or caring for patients in the office, you will be connected to the voicemail system. Please speak clearly and slowly and leave a detailed message.

Our clinical staff can receive a great many phone calls. Please have your questions ready so that they may address all of your issues in a single call. Don’t be concerned if your call is not returned until the end of the day. The clinical staff returns every voicemail or message before the office closes, at a time when they can give you their full and uninterrupted attention.
