EMERGENCY INFORMATION

For our current patients, there is a physician available “on-call” 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to help you with an urgent medical problem. If your medical condition is life threatening, please call 911.

If the emergency occurs during office hours, please call the main number (972) 239-2777 to reach Dr. Simmons.

If the emergency occurs after office hours, call the main number and your call will be forwarded to our answering service. They will be able to contact the on-call physician for you. The physician will return your call as quickly as possible. Please limit your calls to true emergencies.
