Reach the On-Call Provider

Our ON-CALL PEDIATRICIAN is always available after hours for urgent/acute questions and issues. Please always start by calling our office number (203) 221-7337. If we are not in the office, you will hear a recording directing you to our after-hours number to text or call one of our pediatricians.
If we do not return your call/text within 15-20 minutes, please call again!

After-hours coverage is for urgent/acute medical issues only- please use the portal for more routine questions. Our website has many articles about the diagnosis and management of basic childhood illnesses, as well as weight-based dosing charts for acetaminophen, ibuprofen and diphenhydramine (Benadryl). 
Office hours, weather delays and closings will always be posted on our website, with updates sent via email- no need to call the after-hours number.

WEEKEND/HOLIDAY appointments

As a pediatric office, we see patients every day of the year. On weekends and holidays, we ask that you call or text us prior to 10 am if you feel your child needs to be seen for an acute medical problem. Later appointments are not always possible, but we can give you advice on whether to seek emergency care or how to administer home care until we can see your child.
