After Hours Triage
The purpose of having after-hours triage available is to assist patients in urgent situations to make decisions regarding the severity of their child’s condition and determine if a trip to the emergency room is necessary or if the patient’s condition can wait until the office is open. If so, our service can give advice on how to best care for the child in the interim. If at any time you are uncomfortable with the recommendations provided by the service, you can request to speak to the on-call practitioner.
Having this service available helps our patients avoid unnecessary, costly, or time-consuming trips to the emergency room or walk-in clinic during non-business hours. We believe this service is a tremendous benefit to our parents. However, the $20 per call cost that we pay for this after-hours service will be charged to your account.
