In case of a life-threatening emergency, call 911 first, then call the office number with a message and prepare to proceed to the Great River Medical Center Emergency Department.
If a less-threatening problem arises that you feel should be evaluated before the next regular office day, call the office number. A professional answering service will take your telephone number and we will call you back. If the problem can be equally or better-served in the office without undue discomfort on your part, it will be arranged.
An Emergency Department visit is expensive, and the cost is not always covered by insurance or medical assistance if it is not considered an emergency. Therefore, please call the office number before going to the Emergency Department for care.
