The physicians have a call schedule for evenings, weekends, and personal leave.
In the event you should have your baby during one of these times, you may see a different physician at your delivery. Please be assured that all the physicians practice in a similar manner and have the same goal which is to help you have a safe and positive birth experience. In general the physicians still do approximately 70-80% of their own deliveries.
For emergency, urgent care after hours, or on the weekends, please call our main number, 817-416-2229. This number will be answered by the answering service at all times. Please have a pharmacy number ready in the event the physician or a nurse needs to call in a prescription for you. Should you feel you have an emergency and your call is not returned in a reasonable amount of time, please proceed to the emergency room. Please do not have a significant other call for you. It is very important that the physician speak directly to you.
The physicians appreciate your understanding in this matter.
