You can always reach our office at anytime. We do not have an answering service and we answer all of the phone calls personally. Simply call our main phone number and follow the directions on our outgoing message. Press zero and it will directly transfer you to where you can leave a voicemail message and we will call you back. We cannot take phone calls from families who are not established already as patients, and we ask that you respect our personal time with our own children. If you are worried about your child’s immediate health please call us; however if it can wait until we reopen, we will make every effort to call you immediately when we get to the office first thing in the morning. On Monday’s and Friday’s we open as early as 7:30 AM, if that is too early for you to receive a return phone call please remind us of that in your voicemail message. Stay safe and healthy, and when in doubt remember asking questions is never wrong.
