CALL THE OFFICE AT 207-865-9998
In the event of an emergency:
- Always call the office number first for instructions, 207-865-9998.
- When paging the doctor on call, carefully enter your contact number.
- Keep the line clear while waiting for your call back. If it takes longer than 10-15 minutes for a call back, please re-page as instructed.
Do not keep the pager number as a contact number for Dr. Judd or Dr. Solomon, and please do not post it on barn phone lists! It is important that you ALWAYS start with the office number first for current emergency coverage information.
In order to respond efficiently to emergency calls we must have correct contact information and we must be able to reach you as soon as possible. Valuable time is wasted when we receive pages with incomplete call-back information, and encounter busy signals when trying to return your calls. Occasionally an incomplete number comes through the paging system. If you do not receive a response to your page within 10-15 minutes, please repage. If still no response, call the office to confirm doctor on call.
