In the case of life-threatening emergency (loss of consciousness, severe difficulty breathing, severe bleeding, etc.), the best course of action is to immediately call 911.
Many routine illnesses and accidents can be handled through our office. In the case of minor emergencies (mild difficulty breathing, cuts, minor fractures), you are welcome to call our office first for instructions. Our staff is trained to ask the right questions to help you decide where the best care is for your situation.

After hours and on weekends one of our doctors is on call to provide phone advice about urgent matters. We also have an option to speak with a trained pediatric advice nurse. You can reach these options by calling the main office number and following the prompts.
