After Hours Care Q&A
What is after-hours care?
The National Institutes of Health reports that health problems that develop outside of typical office hours are the leading cause of visits to the emergency room. The majority of these visits are non-life-threatening health concerns that your primary care doctor is the most qualified to manage. After-hours care is medical treatment for adults and children that you receive from your primary care physician after regular business hours.
As a patient of Simply Medicine, you don't ever have to wait for quality health care even when the office isn't open. Every patient has direct access to Dr. Miller via email, text, video call, or in-office visits around the clock. She provides concierge medicine, ensuring you get focused medical attention even in the evenings and on the weekends when most doctors have clocked out.
What are the benefits of after-hours care?
Simply Medicine provides attentive after-hours care for men, women, and children, which holds significant benefits, such as:
- No long waits at the emergency room
- Early intervention for illness and disease
- Quality follow-up care and treatment
- Knowledgeable health advice outside of business hours
- Relief when you or your child has concerning symptoms
One of the primary benefits of after-hours care is that Dr. Miller oversees every aspect of your care with extensive knowledge of your health history and specific medical needs. Because she knows your health the best, she is most qualified to make decisions regarding your medical care during the off-hours as well. Concierge-style after-hours care ensures consistent care with your best interest in mind.
When should I use after-hours care?
After-hours care provides diagnosis and treatment for those with non-life threatening conditions such as:
- Cold or flu symptoms
- Cough or congestion
- Asthma attacks
- Abdominal pain

If you or your child has worrisome symptoms or health concerns, Dr. Miller is available for direct communication whenever you need it. If she feels you should go to the emergency room, she coordinates your care and ensures you get the treatment you need quickly.
