If you need to contact a FHC provider when we are closed, call (502) 774-8631. An answering service will help connect you to a provider on-call. The provider on-call will return your call usually within 30 minutes or less. Your health insurance card may also include an after-hours nurse line for your questions.

Can another family member or person bring my child to an appointment if I can’t go?

We prefer for a parent or guardian to be at the appointment so that important questions about the child’s health and any illness and treatment options can be answered at the time of the visit. However, if the parent cannot make it, an adult listed on the Proxy Form can bring the child.  Proxy Forms can be filled out at the Front Desk and must be completed by the parent or guardian of the child.

Test Results & Labs

How will I receive my lab test results?

There are several ways to get your lab test results. First, FHC will notify you of any abnormal or concerning results. Please make sure FHC has a good telephone number for you so we can reach you with these results. Patients can also view tests results online, on My Health Record, FHC’s online patient medical record. Patients may also call and ask to speak to a nurse to obtain lab results. Results are typically available within one week of the procedure.

How do I get a referral to a specialist?

You must first see your Family Health Center provider about the health problem. Then, they can refer you to a specialist or recommend one for you.
