Office Hours

Regular Office Hours:
Doctors' telephone hour: 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. daily; scheduled appointments: 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. through 12:30 a.m. Saturday. The office is closed from 1:00 p.m. to
2:00 p.m. on weekdays and after 1:00 p.m. on Saturdays.

Telephone Hour: The doctors answer the telephone every day of the year from 8:00 a.m. until 9:00
a.m. in order to respond to questions or schedule appointments. Parents find this a convenient time to
contact us so they can plan their day or get early care or advice for a sick child.

Return calls: In addition to our telephone hour service, parents may request a return call anytime during
the day from a doctor or a nurse. We return calls within a reasonable period of time. In the evening, after
office hours, the doctor on-call will return calls from parents of ill children to offer advice or to see the
child if necessary.

Early Morning Visits for Ill Child: To assure timely examination of ill children, and to help parents, office visits for acute illness are available 9 a.m. every morning, 365 days a year. If you call on phone hour, we will see you the same day. One can also schedule ill child vilsits for a later time (even Holidays - see next 2 sections).

Scheduled Appointments: Illness related appointments are available from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 2:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Regular health supervision examination (check-up) appointments are available: Monday through Friday between 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. and Saturday mornings 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.

Sunday/Holiday Visits: One of our doctors is in the office in the mornings on Sundays and Holidays (New Year's Day [1/1/17], Good Friday [4/14/17], Memorial Day [5/29/17], Independence Day [7/4/17], Labor Day [9/4/17], Thanksgiving [11/23/27], Christmas [12/25/17]) until all the children in need of examination are seen. The office then closes and the doctor will be available on-call for emergencies. If a child needs to be seen on a Sunday or Holiday, it is best to call on telephone hour that day to arrange an appointment before the office closes. The office charge at these times is greater than the charge for visits during regular office hours.

After Hours: A doctor from our group is always on-call for after-hours emergencies on weeknights, Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays. Should a child experience an urgent problem and need to be seen, the parent should telephone our office number and inform the answering service or doctor of the nature of the problem. The doctor can then arrange an appropriate time and place for an examination. It is always best to telephone first before transporting a child to an emergency facility. Many visits can be avoided with appropriate advice. IN ANY INSTANCE OF A LIFE-THREATENING PROBLEM, YOUR FIRST CALL SHOULD BE TO YOUR LOCAL RESCUE SQUAD at 911.

After Hours and Prenatal Talks: Prenatal and new patient interviews are welcome. There is no fee for this service. Some children's issues require more time for discussion than is available during regular hours. Many topics require the participation of both parents or other parties. Our physicians are available for after hours consultations, either in person or by telephone, regarding these topics. These consultations can be scheduled by calling the office during regular hours.
