Announcement: Holiday Closure

November 20, 2017

The key to success is planning your day or week in advance. If you’re planning to visit our office this week, please be aware that our office will be closed Nov 23-24, 2017 for the holidays. We will resume our regular schedule on Saturday, November 25, 2017.

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

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
