Announcement: Holiday Closures

December 18, 2017

“A plan is not putting you in a box and forcing you to stay there. A plan is a guide to keep you on course, efficient, and safe.”

The key to success is planning your day or week in advance. If you’re planning to visit our office over the next couple of weeks, please be aware that our office will be closed in observation of the holidays.

In 2017, we will be closed on December 23, 25, & 26, 2017 and will resume on Wednesday, December 27, 2017.

In the 2018 New Year, we will be closed on January 1, 2018. We will resume our regular schedule on Tuesday, January 2, 2018.

During the closure, you should refer to the after-hours phone number on your aftercare instructions should the following occur:

  • Call us if you have a temperature that is higher than 100.4. Please verify your pharmacy is open in case the doctor needs to call in a prescription for you.
  • Call if you have heavy bleeding (saturating 2 full size pads in one hour). Please give us the most accurate amount of your bleeding or clots by counting the number of full size pads you have fully soaked or the size and number of any clots in the last 2 hours.
  • Call if you experience very severe cramping persisting more than an hour after taking the pain medication.

If this is a medical emergency, please call 9-1-1 or visit your nearest emergency room department.

Happy Holidays!
