EMERGENCIES AND AFTER-HOURS POLICY
The Preventive Medicine Center of Gainesville, Inc., is an outpatient facility that provides clients with consultative services for non-emergency health problems. Its physician(s) do not provide in- hospital care or services outside of Center hours. At this point in time there is no other physician trained in the services the Center is providing to provide after-hours care. We understand that emergencies can arise after hours. If you have a life-threatening emergency (e.g. chest pain, loss of consciousness, possible stroke, etc.) immediately call 911. These types of problems are not appropriately treated with alternative therapies. If you have an urgent problem after Center hours you must go to either the closest Hospital Emergency Room or an Urgent Care Center. If hospitalization is required and you do not have a primary care physician, Dr. Chuck Wilson’s group of In-hospital physicians who specialize in this service will be happy to help you. These hospital physicians work at N. Florida Regional Hospital. We appreciate your understanding.
