On weekends and holidays patients are seen on an as-needed basis for urgent concerns; these visits are not booked in advance. Please call the office and leave a message for the on-call provider as early as possible on weekends to have your child seen.

One of our clinicians is always available and on-call for emergencies. However, you should call 911 if your child is experiencing a life-threatening emergency.
