I am available 24/7 for psychiatric emergencies for established patients ONLY! If you are in a serious crisis and need immediate assistance, please call me on my emergency cell number at (919) 244-3640. I will get back to you as soon as possible. If you are facing an immediate, life-threatening medical or psychiatric emergency please call 911 or go to your nearest ER first and then have the ER physician try to reach me on the cell number above. If you are hospitalized, I will gladly waive all telephone fees regarding the coordination of your care from the ER through your discharge home off the inpatient unit.
Please note, that I do not have direct admitting privileges at any hospital in the Research Triangle. I do have admitting privileges at Moore Regional Hospital in Pinehurst, N.C., but in all cases of inpatient hospitalization, including at Moore Regional Hospital, I do not treat my patients on inpatient units directly, but do coordinate care closely with the inpatient team.
For routine phone calls, please call my office number at (919) 267-9813 during normal business hours (8:00A.M. – 6:00 P.M.), and I will get back to you within 24-48 hours on a weekday and the following Monday on a weekend. Please see the sections “Office” and “Fees” for additional information regarding my availability and information on charges for after-hour phone calls.
