24-Hour On-call Service
At FirstMed physicians are on-call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to assist your medical needs.
What to do
- Call the clinic number: 224 9090 at any time
- You will be connected to an on-call doctor
- The doctor may give advice by phone
- Or, may arrange to see you in the clinic
- Or, may arrange for you to be visited at home
- Or, may recommend immediate hospitalization
If the doctor decides that an ambulance is required, we will arrange it through our network of various local ambulance providers and hospitals. If necessary, our doctor may escort you to the hospital. If you need to stay in the hospital, we will follow your progress, communicate with you regularly and be available to sort out any problems.
Always try to call first, because
- We cannot guarantee that a doctor will always be in the clinic.
- In more urgent cases, you may be requested to go directly to the hospital and not to the clinic.
We encourage you to visit the clinic and/or send us your local contact details as soon as you arrive in town.
Knowing how to find us and having your local information in our system BEFORE a situation occurs will help you and our staff handle your emergency efficiently during a time of stress.
