Contact Dr Burton After Hours

After hours phone calls are only accepted for patients who have undergone surgery. If this is the case, you were given Dr. Burton’s home phone number as well as his cellphone number and specific instructions on how to contact him. He is available by phone 24 hours per day for patients who have had their surgery. However, please limit calls after 10pm to true emergencies only. If you have misplaced those instructions, you may find them by clicking here.

If you are a patient of record who has not yet undergone surgery, or you are a new patient, please leave a message on the office answering machine at (618) 519-9363 and your call will be returned promptly when the office reopens. Messages left on Dr. Burton’s emergency line will not be returned for patients not of record or whom have not undergone surgical treatment for their issue.

Please note: Prescriptions will only be refilled after normal office hours for patients who have undergone surgery. If you have not yet undergone your surgery and the office is closed, and your issue is a true emergency, go to the nearest emergency room/urgent care center for evaluation.  Unfortunately, due to new FDA regulations in 2014, certain pain medications require a written and signed prescription.  Therefore, they can only be refilled during normal office hours.
