When is the best time to call the doctor?
Dr. Black and his staff will try to answer all questions at the time of your office visit. If you have an additional question, the staff likely knows the answer or will ask Dr. Black between patients and will call you back within 24-48 hours.
What if I have multiple questions for the doctor?
Then you will need to make an appointment.
When should I call the doctor if I have problems after surgery?
After surgery or after an office procedure, you need to call for any of the following:
- A fever of more than 101°F
- Uncontrolled nausea and vomiting
- The inability to urinate
- Dizziness with fainting
- Bleeding that repeatedly soaks your bandage
- Uncontrollable pain
What if I have a question after the office is closed?
If it can wait until tomorrow, please wait. The after hours answering service is for emergent or very urgent matters that can not wait until the next day.
