Our practice has physician coverage at all times.

If your child has a true medical emergency, call 911 immediately.

If you are unsure, call us!

When you call, we can help you determine if your child:

  • can be safely cared-for at home,
  • needs to be evaluated in the office during regular hours, or
  • needs to go to an emergency department (and if so, which one).

What constitutes a true medical emergency? Examples include, but are not limited to, if your child:

  • has severe breathing difficulty, turns blue, or stops breathing
  • has prolonged, uncontrollable bleeding
  • has sudden loss of consciousness and is not arousable
  • is having a seizure (convulsing)
  • has multiple or serious injuries
  • is having a severe allergic reaction (swollen lips, tongue, or difficulty breathing)

When you go to an emergency department, please call us when you are safely able to do so. We can help organize and facilitate communication with emergency department physicians.

If you believe your child may have ingested a poison, toxic substance, or a medication (or amount of medication) not meant for your child, including over-the-counter products, call Poison Control (1-800-222-1222).
