Sometimes you need a quick answer to a health question. Maybe your concern can't wait until you see your doctor. We're here to help. The Ask-A-Nurse program is a new no-cost service for community members seeking answers to health-related questions.
Get Your Questions Answered
You can talk to our registered nurse to get help with:
Deciding whether to visit an urgent care center or a doctor
Understanding your symptoms
Managing chronic conditions
Learning about treatment options and medical procedures
If you need urgent or emergency care, call 911 and/or your doctor immediately.
Clinical staff of the Ask-A-Nurse helpline cannot diagnose, prescribe, or give medical advice. Call your doctor with any questions or concerns about your health.
Material shared is for informational and educational purposes only. We do not aim to replace the role of your healthcare provider or physician. The Ask-A-Nurse program acts as additional support and guidance in your healthcare journey. Health education programs provide general health information and are not a substitute for treatment or diagnosis by a physician or other health care professional. Contact a healthcare professional with any questions or concerns about specific healthcare needs.
