Emergencies

Emergencies and urgent problems always receive priority.  During office hours, please convey the situation to our staff for immediate evaluation.  After hours, call our answering service at 410-583-6336.  They will contact the doctor and have him return your call.  An emergency is defined as a life-threatening situation and deserves immediate attention.  Do not wait to call if you have a true emergency!  Go to the nearest emergency room or call 911.  Calls for medications, appointments, and matters of routine medical care are not urgent or emergencies and will be handled during normal work hours only.
