We encourage you to call our office with any questions you may have regarding your condition. Please remember the doctors have many patients, both in the hospital and as outpatients, and each call cannot be personally answered by the physician. Our staff is trained to answer most of your questions, and they will relay all information to the doctor. Your call will be returned by the nurse or assistant at the earliest opportunity after reviewing the case with the physician.
