After Hours Care

Emergencies

If you have a true medical emergency, call 911 or proceed to your nearest emergency room.

Urgent Matters

If you have an urgent medical problem after normal business hours, call our office to speak to the physician on call. As your medical home, we value the opportunity to coordinate your care.

We are committed to providing 24/7 access to medical advice and care. When the office is closed, simply call the main number (504.832.8022) for recorded instructions on how to reach the physician on call.
