Q. What do I do in an emergency?

A. If an emergency medical situation arises during office hours call us at (239) 596-2300, and your call will be put straight through to someone who can help you. At night or during the weekend, call (239) 596-2300. Our answering service will contact the doctor and he will call you back as soon as possible with instructions or where to go for immediate treatment if necessary.

Q. What if I go into labor at night or over the weekend?

A. Babies generally don`t share their arrival plans with us in advance so many are born outside of regular office hours. If this is the case with you, call Birthplace at (239) 513-7724 and they will contact Dr. Crandall.
