The following is a handy checklist for what to do:
- Please respect our physicians by remembering that they are available after hours for medical emergencies only. We would appreciate a phone call during business hours to address any routine questions, medication refills or appointment needs that you may have. Or message in the portal for routine questions.
- Be prepared to discuss your problem or need right away, especially if you’ve phoned after hours.
