If you are having an urgent medical need and it is after hours or during a weekend, you may page our Answering Service at 866-278-7336. Please note that there may be a $60 charge for this page and resulting phone consultation. Again, this DOES NOT apply to Mercedes Alice, ARNP patients unless you’re established with one of the other physicians.
