Medical Crises Support

If a person with PWS is experiencing a medical crisis or problem we can help in the following ways:
  • A Medical Crisis Counselor is available to assist you with medical calls and questions during the hours of 10-5PM EST Monday through Friday by calling 800-926-4797 or 941-312-0400.

Note: Any voicemail messages left after the PWSA (USA) office is closed will be returned promptly the next business day. If you are calling about a medical emergency please seek medical attention immediately from your local physician or emergency room or by dialing 911.

  • We provide 24/7 access on our website to important medical alerts and other medical information useful during a medical crisis. To view and download our current alerts, please click here
  • Through contacting our Medical Crisis Counselor we can fax and/or e-mail medical information to physicians and other medical professionals and facilities and in some situations we may be able to set up a “physician to physician” consultation.
  • We distribute to families a copy of our Medical Alert Booklet which includes many of the most important medical alerts to share with physicians and Emergency Room staff. If a family cannot afford the cost of the Medical Alert booklet a copy will be provided for free. If you do not have a copy please contact our office. A copy of the medical alert booklet can also be downloaded click here.
