If you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, CALL 911, or go to the nearest emergency room and have the hospital notify our office or the physician on call.
Dr. Kerper admits his own patients to the hospital (Strong Memorial only) rather than turning care over to a hospitalist.
We are available to you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. BEFORE you decide to go to an Urgent Care facility or to the hospital, please call us. If it is a serious emergency, call 911. Dr. Kerper, who is usually on call for himself, or the on-call doctor will help you decide what action is most appropriate for you. Call the office phone number, 585-244-0674, and your call will automatically switch to our answering service. Should you not be able to get through, the alternative number is 585-258-1918. The service will then contact the on-call doctor who will return your call. Be sure to be available for the doctor's callback. Dr. Kerper shares call coverage, on weekends, so you may speak to a physician other than him.
Urgent telephone calls will be returned as soon as possible.
