24 / 7 Assistance for Emergencies & Urgent Needs

We know you need quick assistance for your children’s urgent needs. For NON-LIFE-THREATENING situations, we recommend you call us first -- at any time of the day or night.  We may be able to save you an unnecessary trip to the emergency department or provide you with a needed referral for insurance coverage.  During regular office hours, our nurses can schedule an "urgent" visit when medically appropriate.  When our offices are closed, our After-Hours Service is available to provide assistance for urgent needs.

During Regular Business Hours

During regular business hours, you may select Option #9 to reach our Emergency and Physician Line. Our registered nurses will assess the situation and identify the best place for your child to receive treatment (our office or a local emergency department). When appropriate, our nurses can schedule an "urgent" visit in one of our offices for special circumstances such as respiratory distress, lacerations, injuries and other urgent needs.

When Our Offices Are Closed

Even when our offices are closed, our After-Hours Service is available to help you decide whether a trip to the emergency department is warranted.
