Each day we specifically allot time in the schedule for urgent or emergent issues. Our providers believe that it is best for continuity of care for our patients that you be seen at our office and hence encourage walk-in visits and same-day sick for patients registered with Sheridan Medical Group. This will prevent long and unnecessary waits in the emergency room or urgent care center. Of course , there may be times when, after reviewing your specific complaint, we feel emergency care at a local hospital is the safest course of action.
When you call to make a same-day sick appointment, your call will be transferred to or taken by a nurse. After a brief review of your symptoms, an appointment will be made for you if needed. There are some issues that may be able to be resolved over the phone; however, SMG does not fill antibiotics or narcotics by phone.
