Regular services and on call services

An on call doctor is someone you might need only once or twice in your life, or possibly never if you are very lucky. But if you need one, no one else will do. Things like annual physicals, vaccinations and booster shots, along with less frequently used services such as diagnostic tests, can be worked into a normal schedule. Even unexpected illnesses, such as the flu, colic or an ear infection, can usually be dealt with during the regular working day.

But then, one night, you cut yourself in the kitchen and the bandages in your medicine cabinet are not quite enough. Or someone gets a headache or stomachache that lasts too long and hurts more than it should. Or you hurt your back while moving furniture on Saturday. When these things happen, you do not want to wait until tomorrow or Monday to deal with them — especially if the person suffering is a small child. At times like this, you need an on call doctor who can help you on any day of the week, at any time you need. Most importantly, he or she can tell you if you or your child needs to go to the emergency room right now.

And imagine how comforting it would be if the person coming to your help at this awkward hour were the same person who keeps track of the course of your health, and that of your family, from year to year. The same person who lets you know if you are at risk of diabetes or heart disease, or if your child is showing signs of some developing health problem. There is no greater reassurance in a moment of crisis than the familiar and friendly place of someone who has already earned your trust
