Direct Access After Hours
There are times when you need to seek medical advice after normal business hours. Examples of such times would be if you are sick, if you are unsure of whether or not to go to the Emergency Department, if you need medical advice that cannot wait until the office opens. We feel that it is important for you to be able to get in touch with a physician that has access to your medical record and who is affiliated with our medical practice. If you need assistance after normal business hours, call our main number at 828-258-1188 and follow the prompts to be connected to the “on call” physician. You will be connected to the physician that is on call for our office. This will be one of our physicians and that physician will have access to your medical record. You will not be connected to a call center with an unfamiliar physician. This service is not for routine items such as appointments, prescription refills or anything that could otherwise wait for the next business day.
