If you have a life threatening emergency, call 911 or have someone drive you to your nearest emergency room. If you’re not in immediate danger, but would like to speak with someone immediately, you can reach the Georgia Crisis Hotline at 1-800-715-4225 or National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. These resources are available 24/7/365.

Limited Availability. I am considered an outpatient practice and do not offer 24-hour emergency services. I often am not immediately available outside of regular appointments, so please seek emergency services first and reach out to me AFTER you have received those services to update me on your status. I usually return call within 24 hours or the next business day.
