After Hours & Weekends
Patient health care continues to be a priority to us even after the doors have closed for the evening. Contact with a provider is just a phone call away. If you are ill after hours, please call (817) 860-2700 and follow the prompt for emergency doctor on-call. When the On-Call message come on, please leave your name, phone number, and the reason for your call and the On-Call Provider will be paged. The On-Call provider should return your call as quickly as possible. Please keep your phone line clear after paging so that the on-call provider can reach you directly. If your symptoms are life-threatening, please contact 911 for an ambulance and report to your nearest emergency room.
All physicians practicing with Athens Internal Medicine hold privileges at both St. Mary’s Hospital and Athens Regional Medical Center. Even though we have affliate privileges, we do not admit patients. Patients who need hospital admissions will be taken care of by “hospitalist” internal medicine physicians, who are available 24 hrs a day within the hospitals. We will resume outpatient care for those conditions upon discharge.
A physician is available after hours and every weekend for emergencies. If you require a non-urgent prescription refill or have an appointment or account inquiry, please call the office during regular business hours of Monday - Friday from 8:00 am - 5:00 pm.
