Due to my work schedule, I am often not immediately available by telephone I probably will not answer the phone when I am with a patient.
I will make every effort to return your call on the same day you make it, with the exception of weekends and holidays. If you are difficult to reach, please inform me of some times when you will be available. Please be sure to leave a number where I can reach you. If you are unable to reach me and feel that you can't wait for me to return your call, contact your family physician or the nearest emergency room and ask for the psychologist or psychiatrist on call.
If I will be unavailable for an extended time, I will provide you with the name of a colleague to contact, if necessary.
