Emergency

Emergency

Diagnosis by telephone is not consistent with responsible medical care. Please understand that we avoid attempting it for your welfare, not for our convenience. If your appointment is delayed, it is because an unanticipated situation or condition has arisen with another patient. We beg your indulgence under such circumstances and pledge that you will be afforded the same consideration should it become necessary. If the delay is significant, you will be advised. If your schedule does not allow you to remain, please advise our staff and they will make alternate arrangements for you. If your injury cannot wait until a scheduled appointment, our physicians are available Monday through Friday at 7:00 am and Saturday and Sunday at 7:30 am in the Reading Hospital Cast Room to see emergency room follow-ups and athletic injuries.

One of our physicians is on call at all times. You may reach him after normal working hours by calling our office. The answering service will locate the physician on duty to return your call. After hours treatment will normally be done at the Reading Hospital. If you are taken to the Reading Hospital Emergency Room for an Orthopaedic problem, the staff there can contact our on call physician, even when we are not the primary orthopaedist on call.
