6/18/2019****Update: Please note your triage call may result in a bill to your insurance and you. If this is not a true emergency, please call our office during normal business hours.
An example of a good use of our after-hours triage nurse would be asking her if your child needs to go to the Emergency Room or if they can wait until the office is open the next business day.
Our favorite Pediatric Emergency Rooms are:
- Phoenix Children’s Hospital (downtown)
- Banner Thunderbird Hospital
Our favorite urgent care facilities include:
- Phoenix Children’s Urgent Care (northeast corner of 51st Avenue and 101 Highway)
- Phoenix Children Urgent Care Facilities (all of these facilities)
If your child or teen has a life-threatening emergency such as seizure, turning blue, choking, electrical burn, apnea or loss of consciousness, please call 911 and not our triage line.
If your child eats or is exposed to a poison, chemical, medication that is not theirs, or is stung by a scorpion, please call poison control at 1-800- 222-1222.
Finally, please utilize our website. We have loads of information about common childhood illnesses and dosing of common medications such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen and Benadryl. During office hours, we have wonderful triage nurses who are happy to answer any routine questions you may have.
We are happy and proud to serve you and your family!
