Deciding If Your Concern is Urgent

1. Decide if the medical condition is urgent

URGENT CONCERNS: It would be appropriate to call the UHS physician on-call for these types of concerns.

NON-URGENT CONCERNS: These concerns are not considered urgent. Waiting to call UHS when the offices re-open is recommended. Call UHS at 585-275-2662 to schedule an appointment.

IN AN EMERGENCY: Call Public Safety at 585-275-3333. Public Safety will send the Medical Emergency Response Team (MERT) to assist you. For more about MERT

2. If the condition is urgent, call UHS at 585-275-2662.

Whenever the UHS offices are closed, a UHS physician is on-call and available by phone from home for urgent concerns that cannot wait until the offices re-open. In an emergency on campus, call 585-275-3333 (or x13 from a University phone) to reach Public Safety.

When you call UHS after hours, here is what you can expect:

DO NOT go to the emergency department unless your situation is life threatening or you have been in a serious accident. Call UHS at 585-275-2662 first, even if you think UHS is closed. If UHS is closed, you can speak with the physician on-call who will talk with you about what you should do.
