Stanford Family Medicine

Emergency Care

Emergency Room Visits outside clinic hours no longer require pre-authorization by your doctor (by California State Law) but should be reported to your physician within 24 hours following your visit. Be aware of your health plan limitations -- unless you require 911 emergency transport, some health plans require you to obtain all after-hours emergency care at Stanford ER if you have a primary care physician at Stanford. A physician is on-call after hours to coordinate any emergency care needs which arise after-hours and can be reached at the 24 hour number - 650-723-6963.

Stanford Family Medicine does not renew routine prescriptions or narcotic prescription after-hours. For routine prescription refills, please contact your pharmacy
