In case the emergency staff needs to get in touch with the patient’s doctor, or call in a specialist, create a single list of all primary care physicians and specialists the patient may be seeing at the time of the emergency.  Include each doctor's:

  • Full name 
  • Specialty, if not your general family doctor
  • Office, hospital or practice for which they work
  • Address, phone number and email, if they use that as a mode of communication with patients
  • Assistant's name and number, if known
  • Any conditions for which the patient sees the physician (for example, monthly checkups for asthma control)
