Phone Connectivity Alert:

If you experience connectivity problems AFTER attempting to call your physician’s office, please call 912.691.3600.

Several of our offices are experiencing phone connectivity problems due to issues related to our phone carrier, Windstream Communications. This problem has been on-going for some time and as a result, SouthCoast Health has made the difficult decision to transfer our service to another phone vendor.

We are committed to making this transition as seamless as possible to our patients; however, if you experience connectivity problems after attempting to call your physician’s office, please call 912.691.3600. In addition, if you are a member of our FollowMyHealth portal, you may request appointments, prescription refills and send messages to your physician’s nurse via the portal.

Thank you!

Patricia P. Shapiro, M.D.
