A great big CONGRATULATIONS to Apogee Physicians for launching its fabulous new service today that all of us parents have needed for years – Apogee Doctor On Call.  The service offers access to healthcare 24 hours a day, seven days a week just by dialing 1-888-353-4555. It is the only over the phone medical consultation and evaluation that we know of that is fully staffed by licensed physicians and is direct to consumer.

Inspired by an incredible commitment to do what is best for patients, Apogee Physicians is one of the nations largest physician groups caring for more than 1 million patients a year. Its new Apogee Doctor On Call service is an ideal proposition for today’s busy families and individuals because it connects patients with licensed, board-certified physicians at their convenience. Within minutes an over the phone consultation, diagnosis and prescription, if necessary, is provided saving valuable time and anguish.  No more wasted time in healthcare clinic waiting rooms, just call Apogee Doctor On Call and go pick up your prescription at your nearest pharmacy if needed.

RIESTER’s campaign for Apogee Doctor On Call launched today in the state of Tennessee and there have already been stories about the service written in the Associated Press, USA Today, and The Tennessean newspapers. What is most rewarding is that it is the type of out-of-the-box thinking much needed in healthcare, potentially helping alleviate pressures on emergency rooms and on primary care physicians because of the growing shortage in their field. It is the start of a thoughtful, unique initiative, which RIESTER is privileged to be part of, learn more at Apogee Doctor On Call and set your speed dial to 1-888-353-4555.
