Contact a Nurse
You can call 870-779-6000 and ask to speak to the nurse. Please briefly describe your medical issue.

Our nurses will listen to your medical issues and concerns and work with you to:

  • Identify and evaluate your symptoms
  • Recommend next steps and, if needed, make an appointment with your doctor

If your illness needs a quick response, same-day appointments are available. Please let the receptionist know that you need to be seen that day. It is best to call first thing in the morning because same-day these appointments are filled on a first-called, first-served basis.

Emergencies After Office Hours

If an emergency develops after office hours, on weekends or holidays, our physicians are on call. Please call our main number 870-779-6000 to speak to the on call physician if you are unsure whether or not you have an emergency. If you are experiencing chest pain or difficulty breathing, please visit your nearest emergency room.
