 When and Where to Seek Care
Call US First ANY DAY, ANY TIME Before Going to the ER

As your primary care doctor, we know how important it is for you to get the care you need when you need it. That’s why the best place to start when you have a health concern is with our office. Our dedicated staff is familiar with your health. We want to help you get the best care possible. That’s why we encourage every family to CALL US FIRST…ANY DAY, ANY TIME!

WHEN OUR OFFICE IS CLOSED…. A DOCTOR IS ON CALL 24/7 TO SPEAK WITH YOU ABOUT HEALTH CONCERNS If you get sick or hurt when our office is closed and you’re not faced with an emergency, call our office to speak directly with a pediatric nurse or pediatrician on call. Talking to a pediatric-trained nurse or a local pediatrician will give you quality care, and could save you time and money!

Remember, if you’re seriously ill or injured, the emergency room is the right place to go. But when our office is closed, consider calling US before heading to the ED.
