After Hours Assistance

If you are experiencing a true, life-threatening emergency, call 911.

Call our office only after you have made arrangements to get to the Emergency Room.

Our nurses return calls during business hours as time permits. If the matter is urgent, please tell our phone operator so that the nurse can confer with you in the timeliest manner possible. Please understand that calls for test results and prescription refills will be returned after urgent patient needs are met.

We ask that you remember that physicians’ schedules are long and demanding. It may be late in the afternoon after all patients are seen, or sometimes the following day before non-emergency phone calls are returned.

If you feel you need us, we want to hear from you. Please use this guide as to when you should make your phone call:

Call During Regular Office Hours (8:00 a.m.–4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday)

  • If you have questions about your medication, treatment or side effects.
  • If you’re having nutrition problems.
  • If you need a prescription refilled.

Never hesitate to call us for any problem that is important to you. There is no need to be miserable. If a certain medication is not working, call and let us know. Chances are, we can prescribe or suggest something to make you more comfortable

Our goal at The Central Florida Cancer Institute is to enhance the quality of life, facilitate adaptation, and improve health outcomes through evidence-based care.
