To provide for the best opportunity in care, we treat patients by appointment. We make a sincere attempt to adhere to the appointment schedule. Should you be unable to keep your appointment, please contact us as soon as possible so that we may use the time for another patient who needs medical attention.
A physician at Gastroenterology Associates is always on call and available to assist with your care. Should you have an emergency during office hours, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital emergency room. After regular office hours, or on weekends, please go to the nearest emergency room or call the hospital of your choice and ask for the physician on call.
If you have a problem or question between appointments, please call us. Due to the volume of calls we receive, the office telephone may be automated. Please follow these procedures:
• Please select the option that best suits your need or simply select 0 for an operator.
• Inform the staff of the nature of your call, and our specially trained personnel will assist you promptly.
• If your call is of a medical nature, our nurses, after discussion with your physician, will assist you. If they feel the matter needs to be further addressed, your physician will return your call as soon as possible.
• Please leave numbers where you can be reached.
