In case of an emergency, call 911 to dispatch an ambulance
We encourage you to make your appointments as far in advance as possible. We recognize the importance of your time and will make every effort to meet your scheduled appointment. We ask your understanding when medical emergencies may occasionally cause us to delay or reschedule your appointment.
You may not email us to request appointments. Please be aware that this is not a secure form of communication and private medical information should not be shared. Please contact us to make an appointment either by phone (920-886-9380) or submit a request for an appointment here.
If you cannot keep a scheduled appointment, please notify us at least 24 hours in advance. If you must cancel your appointment due to last-minute unforeseen circumstances, please let us know immediately.

Our switchboard operator will direct your call to the appropriate person during our regular office hours. Please be prepared to tell the operator which person or department you wish to speak with and the nature of your call so that it will be properly directed.
If your call is prompted by pain, acute discomfort, or feel the situation warrants an immediate response, please give the operator-specific details so we can respond accordingly. If your call is not an emergency, the operator may forward you to the voice mail of the appropriate person. When leaving a message, please spell your name and give your phone number. Please be aware that our physicians are generally not available by phone. If you have a medical question, you will be directed to our nursing staff.
