Convenient Pediatric Care

After Hours Services

Evenings & Weekends

The Pediatricians believe it is important to offer extended hours of service in the evenings and on weekends so that you can bring your child to see a pediatrician, who also has access to your child’s specific medical record. The office is open in the evenings and on weekends to take care of urgent illnesses and minor injuries that should not wait until morning. Please call the office number to speak with the office.

What if the office is closed?

NurseWise, a professional nurse-triage service is available for the purpose of giving you safe and appropriate advice or direction. They utilize protocols approved by the pediatricians. This service is not meant to replace the physician on-call, but rather as another option for information when you need help making a decision.

Physician on-call: there is a pediatrician on-call at all times. If you feel you must speak to the pediatrician on-call, you may request that the NurseWise service page the physician on-call.

When you call NurseWise, please be prepared with your child’s date of birth and a brief statement of what is your primary concern. This information is helpful to them so they can begin to “Triage” or sort through and prioritize calls. After the initial intake, your call will go to a Registered Nurse for additional information and instructions or advice.

NurseWise Direct Phone #: 1.866.240.1985 (toll free) or 1.855.790.5055 (toll free)
