You may be overwhelmed by the scope of your experience, distracted of your typical common sense and think to just rush to the nearest emergency department, however recent studies show that many acute problems can be dealt with on the phone. It takes an experienced practitioner like Dr. Bloch to establish information as to the nature of the problem, severity, duration, particular concerns, your ability to individually cope in your current surroundings, etc. If Dr. Bloch can’t help you, either over the phone or in person to stabilize the problem immediately, his knowledge base of Denver as well as its surrounding facilities and medical providers assures you will be directed to the best most appropriate and cost-effective facility for your issue.
The number of patients in general practice is rising and the nature of healthcare is increasingly more complex. It is not surprising that many find it difficult to find easy access to medical providers capable of meeting their desires for timely responses to their requests for adequate care and information. This is where YCHC differs and telephone triage & consultation aims to improve your access to care whether it becomes an issue for us or not. The purpose of triage is simple, to assure you are referred to an appropriate clinician for appropriate care within an appropriate time period.
