After Hours

Our practice subscribes to the All Children's Hospital "On Call" program. If your child has an urgent medical problem when our office is closed, you may utilize this service to get advice from a registered nurse.

One of our doctors is also on call 24 hours per day, 7 days per week including all holidays. If you wish to discuss an emergency with the "on call" doctor, you may reach her through our answering service. If you have a less urgent concern or question, we ask that you call the office during regular office hours. (We pay a fee for each call handled by All Children's.) You may also leave a non-urgent message for our staff to return during regular office hours as well.

If you utilize our after hours service, your child must be seen in the office the following day for a thorough evaluation and assessment. High quality patient care is our goal.

Medication refills are handled during regular office hours. We do not call in antibiotics without first evaluating the child.

To access our "on call" system, please call our office phone number (727)323-2727 and follow the prompts. Please keep in mind that this service is intended for urgent or emergency medical problems only. In the rare event you call our office after hours and do not get our answering service please call Bay Area Medical Exchange (727)562-6600.

Our office is open on Saturday mornings for urgent visits only - if you feel like your child needs to be seen, please call first thing on Saturday morning to come in. We do not schedule appointments for Saturdays .
