Our nurses are unable to answer medical questions from patients who have not yet been seen by one of our providers. 

Do you provide after hours care?

Evening and weekend surgical care is shared by all of the surgeons at Ozark Surgical Group. One of the surgeons will be available 24 hours each day for surgical emergencies.

Prescriptions for pain medication may not be refilled over the phone and will not be refilled after hours or on weekends. No narcotics are kept at our office. 

Why do you need my email address?

Should you encounter any difficulty or prefer to complete the registration process on-site, a tablet will be readily available at check-in for your convenience. Our team stands prepared to offer any necessary assistance, ensuring a seamless and efficient registration process.
