For Enrollees

Now that you are enrolled in DASH, here is what you need to know…

When should I call DASH?

checkbox You prefer not to go to the emergency room

and

checkbox You need medical attention that can’t wait for an appointment with your primary care doctor, such as:

  • Cough and fever, which could be pneumonia
  • A bladder infection
  • A skin or wound infection
  • A painful rash, which could be shingles
  • Feeling faint or extremely dizzy
  • Shortness of breath
  • Increasing leg swelling, which could be a heart problem
  • Stomach flu with vomiting or dehydration
  • A new and intense pain
  • Confusion or a change in mental state
  • A fall or injury

What DASH is NOT:

  • for routine care that can wait for a visit to your Primary Care Physician
  • a replacement for calling 911 in all circumstances – some things, like broken hips, can’t be handled at home.

If you are enrolled in DASH and need medical attention.

Call (805) 617-0049

Visits available
Monday through Saturday.
Doctors available by phone on Sundays.

Instead of calling emergency, I call DASH and a nurse comes to me. You can’t beat that.
