Nurse Advice Line

If you are experiencing a medical emergency, please call 9-1-1 or go to your nearest emergency room.

For non-emergency conditions, AltaMed has Urgent Care sites available to you. Click here for a selection of these clinics listed by county. For your convenience, we also have non-AltaMed partner sites providing Urgent Care services, click here for a listing of those locations and their hours of operation.

As an AltaMed patient, you always have the option to speak with an advice nurse. Advice nurses are registered nurses who have special training to answer your questions about health problems and help you decide how to manage minor illnesses. We have two options for nurse advice. If you are a member of a health plan, we have a listing of their phone number below. Or if you prefer, you can call AltaMed’s nurse advice line:
