Emergencies and After-Hours Calls

AFTER REGULAR OFFICE HOURS, the pediatrician on call may be contacted by calling our office number. Unless there is truly a life-threatening emergency (e.g. Your child is not breathing, is severely choking, has been knocked unconscious, or is having a seizure for the first time), please call the doctor on call prior to going to the emergency room.

In many cases, the pediatrician on call may be able to provide advice that will save your family the inconveniences and expense of an emergency room visit. Also, many insurance policies require that you contact your physician prior to going to the emergency room (and will not cover the ER visit unless this protocol has been followed). Examples of problems that do NOT usually require an emergency room visit and can safely wait to be handled during regular office hours are: cold and other respiratory illnesses (unless accompanied by respiratory distress or fever over 102 degrees); rashes that blanch with pressure; constipation; diaper rash; and head lice.
