After Hour Emergency Calls
For after-hour emergencies, our patients may reach us by telephoning our live answering service. We carry a pager. If you call with an emergency and we do not get back to you within a half hour, please call the answering service back. Ask them to be sure they tried paging us and calling our home and cell phones. If you are our regular patients and have an emergency while you are on vacation, remember than we can still talk to you and prescribe in states other than Pennsylvania. Please have the phone number of your pharmacy in case we need that. Thanks! --- Drs. Lynne and George
If you are a patient in another office, we urge you to contact that office first in an emergency. If we are open we are usually able to find time for emergency situations. We cannot prescribe for, or treat you over the phone, if you are not a patient of record. You may call our office in off hours but if you are not our patient we may be limited in what we can do for you.
If we need to drive to the office just for you there may be a reasonable emergency fee.
