After-Hours Care

For established patients, Dr. Trautman carries a pager for after-hours situations that cannot wait until the clinic reopens.  There is a fee for pager use.   See below.

If you have an Emergency, go to the Emergency room or call 911.

Dr. Trautman is not always available on the pager as she may be involved with a birth or  out of town.

 

When you call the pager:  (Pager number is four 3 one – four 2 eight 6)

  •  Leave a message with your NAME, PHONE NUMBER, and a brief summary of the health problem.
  • Please respect Dr. Trautman’s time and keep your questions to the urgent issue at hand.
  • If you have not received a return call in 15 minutes then call again.
  • If you still do not receive a call back then you can assume that Dr. Trautman is unavailable and proceed to Urgent Care or the Emergency Room.

 

The fee for use of the pager is $20.  Enough to keep it from being used indiscriminately, but this amount is nothing if you have a serious, urgent health concern and would like to know if there are other options for treatment before heading to the ER.

For pediatric patients of Dr. Trautman (children for whom Dr. Trautman is the primary care doctor) there are 2 free pager calls per calendar year.
