Call North Hills Family Medicine First!
For patients of North Hills Family Medicine, we encourage our patients to call us for any medical questions.
In the case of an injury or mild to moderate illness, an urgent care center is a great choice if our offices are closed. They are open extended hours and most will accept the insurances that our offices accept. However, we always recommend checking with your insurance company for your coverage and help in finding an urgent care center that is contracted with your health plan.
For serious conditions, an emergency room is the appropriate place to seek care. Chest pain, shortness of breath, altered mental status, bleeding from the rectum or vomiting blood are examples of illnesses appropriate for an emergency room.
If you do visit an ER, we encourage you to schedule a follow-up with us to ensure that care is continued.
