Call Us First Campaign Aims to Quickly Connect Patients to Providers

Whether you’re experiencing a sudden health concern or chronic symptoms with little relief, the care team at Clearview Cancer Institute urges you to Call Us First.   The Call Us First phone number is 1-888-374-1015.

The Call Us First campaign aims to bridge the gap between patients and healthcare providers. Often, people hesitate to seek medical help due to various reasons, including lack of time, fear of long waiting hours at clinics, or uncertainty about the seriousness of their symptoms. This initiative encourages individuals to reach out to medical professionals directly, enabling them to receive prompt guidance and appropriate care.

Call your CCI first if you are experiencing any of the following:

  • A fever of 100.5° or above
  • Chills or flu-like symptoms
  • Unrelieved nausea, vomiting or diarrhea

Why Call Us First?

  1. Immediate Medical Advice: One of the primary benefits of the Call Us First campaign is quick access to medical advice. Healthcare professionals are just a call away to provide you with the guidance you need.
  2. Reduced Emergency Room Visits: Many non-emergency medical issues lead people to emergency rooms, adding strain to an already burdened healthcare system. By calling CCI first, your care team can determine if your situation requires an ER visit or if it can be managed through other, more appropriate means, thus reducing unnecessary hospital admissions.
  3. Effective Triage: Trained medical professionals answering your call can assess your symptoms and provide you with personalized advice, including self-care tips, medication recommendations, or scheduling an appointment with a healthcare provider, ensuring that you receive the right level of care at the right time.

How to Utilize the Call Us First Service

  1. Save the Number: Make sure to save the designated hotline number in your phone contacts. This ensures that you can access medical advice quickly whenever the need arises.
  2. Describe Your Symptoms Clearly: When calling, be prepared to describe your symptoms clearly and accurately. The more information you provide, the better the medical professionals can assess your situation and offer appropriate advice.
  3. Follow the Guidance: Pay close attention to the advice given by the healthcare professionals. They might recommend home remedies, over-the-counter medications, or further medical evaluation, depending on the nature of your symptoms.
  4. Keep Emergency Numbers Handy: While the Call Us First service is invaluable for non-emergency situations, always keep emergency numbers like 911 accessible for severe or life-threatening emergencies.
