WHAT IF YOU NEED A SPECIALIST?
If you need care that is beyond our usual scope of services, we are still there to help you. We rely on a network of excellent specialists to complement the care we provide, and we will continue to assist in coordinating your care. We might refer you to a specialist if you need major surgery, heart catheterization, or other specialized diagnostic or treatment services.
We have physicians on-call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you need to speak with a physician about an urgent medical need after-hours, call the answering service at (318) 484-3256.
