Dr. Nuno has an emergency call out telephone number for hotels. The number hotel staff would ring in an emergency is 982 54 06. However please
note, normal fees during opening times at his Clinic is 20 Euros for a consultation. For emergency call outs hotel guests are required to pay
70 Euros. You can appreciate if a Doctor has been called out at night for an emergency, the daytime clinic may not open. In the past people
living in Santa Maria would prefer to go to the hospital as they do not have the 70 euros emergency call out fee.
There are two dentists in Espargos.
