Emergencies

J. Bingham Pager: 503-945-9696 (established patients)

Do not use email or voicemail for emergencies, please.  Call the pager now.  Be sure to enter a return phone number at the beep.  If you're not sure, try it again, that's not a problem.  

Remember, I do not currently have guaranteed 24 hrs/7-days-a-week pager coverage (here's why).  If you need a reply in less than two hours, or if your situation is dangerous in any way, you should call 911 now

If you can wait one to two hours and it is clearly safe to do so, you may wait to see if the pager brings a return call.  If I've just started a session with a patient, it could be that long before I'm able to call back (obviously, on average it would be less than that).   If I'm out of town, the voicemail message will indicate so and give further instructions about how you may still reach me in an emergency.  If I've just started a neuropsychological evaluation, I will take a break and return a page as soon as possible.  If I am out hiking, I may not be in  "cell range" for awhile, but I will always try to return a page within one to two hours.  If you need help sooner, or I have not responded, go to the Emergency Room or call 911. You can get help without contacting me and they may be able to reach me anyway.
