Voice Mail Directions

During office hours, if the person you are calling is not available, you will be routed to that person’s voice mail. Press “8” on your dial to skip the recorded greeting. If your call is urgent, you are routed to the wrong person, you want to leave a written message or you want to talk to a live person, press “0” on your dial. You will be routed back to the receptionist.

After hours, you can call in to leave a message. Above is a list of staff extensions, press the extension number to leave your message on the staff person’s voice mail. You can also leave a message in what we call the “general mailbox,” and it will be given to the person the next morning. Sometimes callers during regular hours are answered by the recording. This is usually because of an unusually large number of calls at that moment. You can either leave a message or wait a few minutes and call back.
