Your health needs don't always happen during doctor office hours. That's when you can count on Avera Ask-A-Nurse. This free service connects you with a registered nurse who provides confidential answers to your health related questions 24 hours a day. While you won't receive a diagnosis over the phone, you will benefit from the medical information and help you need to make a decision of whether to go to an emergency department or after-hours clinic, call your doctor, or simply use home care.
If you think a situation is life threatening, call 911 or your local emergency service immediately - Ask-A-Nurse is not a resource for medical emergencies.
Call Avera ASK-A-NURSE at 800-658-3535 to talk with a registered nurse.
We can only help callers who live in the Avera service area, which includes eastern South Dakota, and select counties in southwestern Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska and North Dakota (portions of area codes 605, 507, 320, 712, 701 and 402)
If you live outside our service area, please consult a health care system in your area.
