If your concerns are not urgent, but you do not want to wait until the next scheduled appointment, ask to have a health care team member call you. In many cases, this may be a nurse who will decide whether you need to also speak with the doctor. You can also write up a list of questions to fax, email or mail to your health care team. They can then prepare a response when they have time and call or email you to discuss it further.
If you have a medical emergency, contact your hospital emergency room and your health care team right away. Do not try to wait until your next scheduled appointment.
