After Hour, Weekend and Holiday Care

Calls made after hours are directed to our answering service.  The pediatrician on call or a pediatric nurse will call you back.

Have information available for the doctor or nurse:

  • Your child’s name, date of birth, temperature
  • What you are concerned about, how long it has been going on and has it been getting worse
  • What you have done about your child’s illness, current medications.
  • Phone number of your pharmacy

Unless it is a life threatening event, do not go to the Emergency Room without calling your doctor first.  Many problems at first glance are a little frightening, but many of these can be handled without an E.R. visit.

**Please do not call after hours for routine needs such as prescriptions refill or appointments scheduling and/or cancellations.**
