What happens if you fall ill at 35,000ft?

If a passenger falls ill at 40,000 feet there is a good chance the aircrew will call the ER doctors in Phoenix, Arizona. The Doctors here diagnose patients they never see or speak too and have to make the call whether or not to divert a plane, so the passenger can get appropriate medical treatment on the ground.
