The Emergency Medical ID Card
Important personal medical information should be immediately available. Medical related facts would be very helpful to have in an emergency. This wallet size/business card size emergency medical identification card is available exclusively at this office.
See a sample here.
In place of the medical caduceus, a digital photo, a digital dental radiograph or fingerprint image may be included.
The card lists allergies, existing illnesses, prescriptions taken, emergency contact person's name and phone number, prostheses of any kind, blood type (if available), doctor's name and phone number, etc. You may use aliases for privacy. Your home address, photo, social security number is optional.
An order consists of a set of four cards. The cost is $15 plus $3 s/h. The card is laminated to prevent alteration and provide durability. The lamination has an eyelet to allow pinning. Scissor trim for wallets. All laminate designs are available.
THE COST IS FREE TO ALL EXISTING PATIENTS. Download the form here:
The US Postal Service "Drop in any Mail Box-Return Service Requested" returns a lost card to this office.
