After Hours

If your child’s illness or injury is life-threatening, call 9-1-1.

For other emergencies and urgent situations when our office is closed please call our medical exchange at 314-362-0224

After hours (when the office is closed) calls are answered by one of our providers or the nurse triage service from St. Louis Children's Hospital. Please have the following information available when you call:
  • Your child’s main symptoms
  • Any chronic disease or health problem
  • Your child’s approximate weight
  • The names and dosages of any medicines your child is taking
  • Your pharmacy’s phone number in case a prescription is necessary

While we are happy to assist you and your sick child after hours, we ask that you reserve non-urgent calls for regular business hours. Routine questions, scheduling issues, and prescription refills should be discussed during regular office hours. Thank you for understanding.
