Southdale OB/GYN offers patients a Nurse Advice Line M-F 8:30am-4:30pm. The Nurse Advice Line is staffed by licensed registered nurses with specialized training in OB/GYN health care. Our current staff of 7 nurses has over 100 years of experience in OB/GYN nursing. The nurses answer medical questions, provide patient education, schedule urgent appointments, manage pharmacy calls, review test results and serve as liaisons with our doctors and nurse practitioners. Our nurses follow OB/GYN National Standards for Best Practice Care when advising patients.
Patients have the option of being transferred to the nurse line or leaving a message for a same-day call back. Patient calls on the nurse line are answered in the order they are received. Our call volume is heaviest on Mondays and upon opening. Patients with non-urgent calls are advised to avoid these times and the longer wait period. Please notify the call center if your call is an emergency and you will be connected to a nurse immediately. Our nurses can be reached at 952-920-7001.
