Providers and staff at Obstetrics and Gynecology Care Associates, S.C. routinely see patients from 7:30 AM to 4:30 P.M., Monday through Thursday. It is necessary to schedule an appointment, as we do not take walk-in patients. If you have an emergency, please call our office. We will work you in as quickly as possible, when medically indicated.
Annual exams should be made six weeks in advance. Postpartum and postoperative appointments should be made as soon as you return home from the hospital, if not previously scheduled. We are always accepting new patients. To avoid unnecessary out-of-pocket expenses, be sure that our doctors are listed on your plan.
We recognize the value of your time, so we do our best to keep your appointment on schedule. However, unforeseen delays may arise from surgical complications or emergency patients. If your provider is delayed, we will attempt to notify you before you come to the office or upon your arrival. You may wait for the provider, see another provider in our office, or reschedule your appointment. Your patience in these matters is greatly appreciated.
The office is closed on the following holidays: New Year's Day, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and the following Friday, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
Please make note that our office may be closed for training and education for our staff members. We will try to announce these in advance.
You may call our office from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM, Monday through Thursday.
We have many incoming lines. If your call is not an emergency, you may be asked to be placed on hold when you call. Please bear with us. Your call will be taken as promptly as possible.
A nurse is a phone call away! During office hours, you may speak with our triage nurse who provides information on a wide range of medical topics.
When the providers are with patients, they are interrupted for emergencies only. If you call with a medical problem or question, your call will be returned at the earliest possible opportunity.
We request that you reserve evening, night, and weekend calls for urgent or emergency conditions only. Prescription refills are not an emergency. These should be obtained during regular office hours when your records are available.
If you find it necessary to contact our providers after hours, please call our office at (309) 662-2273 and follow the phone instructions.
