After Hours Care

Emergencies & Phone Calls
Our nurses return calls during business hours as time permits. If a matter is urgent, please tell our front office support staff so that your nurse can confer with you in the timeliest manner possible. Please understand that calls for test results and prescription refills will be returned after urgent patient needs are met. Non-emergency phone calls may be returned late in the afternoon after all patients are seen or the following day.

Call Anytime – Day or Night

  • Fever 100.5 F. degrees or greater
  • Uncontrollable nausea or diarrhea

  • Severe shaking or chills

If you are experiencing a true, life-threatening emergency, you must call 911 and call our office only after you have made arrangements to get to the Emergency Room.

To reach your oncologist or the “on-call” oncologist after office hours, weekends, or holidays for which we are closed, please call our answering service at (307) 235-2501. The answering service does not have access to the office appointment schedules. When our office is closed, our answering machine is turned on. Please leave non-emergency messages if you wish; we check messages the next business day.
