If you need urgent care during office hours, call the office immediately. Tell the person answering the call that it is an emergency. A nurse practitioner, physician assistant or doctor will evaluate your situation and give immediate instructions.
If you experience a life-threatening emergency, call 911; an ambulance will take you to the nearest emergency room. Inform the emergency room staff that you are under treatment with your GCS doctor. The emergency room doctor will call and tell us about your situation.
After our offices are closed, emergency calls are handled by on-call staff. The physician, nurse practictioner, or physician assistant who answers these calls or provides after hours care will not necessarily be your doctor, but they are GCS employees.
