Acute Care services are those medical incidents that start suddenly and often need to be dealt with quickly. They can range in severity from a viral illness that makes you feel miserable to a sudden surgical catastrophe. Sometimes it is very difficult to tell the difference over the phone but we expect to be there for our patients in these situations. Please be detailed when calling in for an appointment so we can safely schedule you. We may feel it is best to triage you directly to the Emergency Room or may feel that waiting a day will not jeopardize your health. If our decision does not feel right to you, please be clear that you feel your situation is more urgent.
