Medical Advice and Appointments
For non-life threatening situations, call your pediatrician first-- at any time, day or night. The answering service will take your information and forward it to a registered nurse (RN).
The registered nurse will call you back to discuss your child’s condition and arrange for a clinic appointment, if necessary.
If you haven’t heard from the nurse within an hour, call your child’s primary care physician again.
We can evaluate and treat a wide range of symptoms and conditions, including:
Please make sure you or your child's health care provider calls in advance to schedule an appointment prior to arriving to the clinic.
What to Bring
- Insurance card
- Photo ID
- A list of medications your child is currently taking
Follow-up with Your Pediatrician
We will fax the notes from your child’s After Hours Clinic visit to child’s primary pediatrician. This will allow your pediatrician follow-up with you as needed.
The After Hours Clinic is staffed by:
- A physician that practices in the local community
- A registrar who gathers the patient’s information and registers the patient for their visit
