After Hour Emergencies

As of Oct 1, 2021 we will no longer be covering after hour emergencies due to staffing shortages. You can still call the office after hours and our answering service can give you the names and numbers of the emergency clinics. They are also listed on our website. We will still be seeing emergencies during our regular office hours when needed.
