Q: If I have questions about my child that can be handled over the telephone, what can I expect?
A:
Our receptionists answer the phones to schedule appointments and take messages for our nurses during normal business hours. If you have a question for a nurse or doctor, please provide us with your child's name, birth date and contact phone number where you can be reached during the day. Also, be prepared to provide current symptoms, medicines given, any drug allergies, current weight and a pharmacy phone number. A nurse will call you back as soon as possible to get a more detailed history and address your needs. Please realize, emergency calls will be handled first. If the nurse cannot fully address your question or needs, a doctor will call you back.
