Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About My Health Care

  1. Am I able to select a primary care Physician?
    Yes, selecting a primary care Physician of your choice is important for you. Establishing a Physician/Patient relationship is important in getting to know you and your health care needs.

  5. What do I do if I need care and the Health Center is closed?
    • If you are having a medical emergency do not wait and call 911 and/or go directly to the nearest emergency room. If the emergency room Physician needs to have more information, he/she will contact your Primary Care Physician through Physician's Exchange.
    • If your health situation requires urgent consultation, your primary care physician can be reached through Physician's Exchange at 524-2575 after hours.
    • If you are calling for non-urgent matters such as prescription refills and minor health problems, please call the Health Center on the next business day to schedule an appointment.
