After Hours

We now have two options for after hours phone advice!

We have partnered with John Muir Health to offer a nurse advice service after hours.  They are available from 5 pm to 8:30 am on weekdays and 24 hours over weekends and holidays.  The phone number for the John Muir Advice Nurse Line is (925) 296-9001.  All of our patients can use this service, with any insurance.  However, if you are advised to be seen in Urgent Care, your insurance will dictate which urgent care clinics you are able to use. Please see below for more information.

In addition, one of our pediatricians from Lamorinda Pediatrics is on call after hours to provide phone advice for urgent matters.  You are welcome to call and we can help you decide whether you can provide home care or whether your urgent issue may require a visit to our office, a local urgent care, or the emergency department.  You can reach us by calling our main office number and following the prompts to reach the physician on call.  If you do not receive a call back within 15 minutes, please call again.

If you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, the best course of action is to immediately call 911. 

Many questions may be answered using the information on our website, including questions about medication dosing and home care advice for common illnesses.  Please save routine questions (mild illnesses, appointments, non-urgent prescription refills) for regular business hours.
