Emergency or After Hours Care
Contact your physician and utilize the after hours on-call process or proceed to the nearest emergency room.
The Piedmont Stone Center does not recognize Advance Directives or Do Not Resuscitate Orders. In the event of a life threatening emergency, our staff will initiate resuscitative measures and contact 911 to provide you with immediate emergency care until you are transported to the emergency room. You have the right to cancel your treatment if you prefer no resuscitation measures are initiated.

If you have issues or concerns regarding your treatment, please contact our Clinical Nurse Manager at 1-800-800-6615 or complete a patient survey card.
