Ask Our Nurse

We have nurses assigned each day during regular office hours to take your phone calls with any questions you may have. If your child is ill, you may not know if their symptoms require an office visit. At times, the nurse may advise you to treat the symptoms and watch for any changes, or to schedule an appointment with one of our physicians.

With the exception of emergencies, please have the following information available when you call to help use best assist you:

Your child’s main symptoms and how long he/she has been experiencing them
Any chronic disease or health problem your child has
Your child’s temperature if he or she is sick
Your child’s approximate weight (for calculating drug dosages)
Names and dosages of any medications your child is currently taking
Your pharmacy telephone number
