IF THERE IS AN IMMEDIATE, LIFE-THREATENING EMERGENCY, DIAL 911.

IF YOU ARE WORRIED ABOUT A POTENTIAL POISIONING, PLEASE CALL POISON CONTROL 1-800-222-1222.

If the problem does not justify "911" or you are simply not sure what to do, your doctors at Parsippany Pediatrics are available for emergency calls after hours: call the main office number (973-263-0066), and you will be given options to access advice.

We encourage you to refer to our website first, when practical, before calling the doctors after-hours, but we also recognize that the website information will not answer all questions or cover all scenarios.

Appointments

On Saturday mornings, we are available in the office only for emergency sick/injury visits, not for well check-ups or vaccinations. We start taking calls for these emergency Saturday appointments at 9 AM.

Please call during office hours to set up appointments or to speak with our staff.

Beginning in February 2015, we have expanded our availability for EVENING APPOINTMENTS (both for sick/injury visits and for well-visits/check-ups) to 3 week-nights per week. If you need an evening appointment, please discuss this with our staff while scheduling your appointment.

Answering Service

After-Hours Phone Advice

One phone number, 973-263-0066, can be used to contact us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. In the evening and overnight, our answering service can leave routine messages for us for appointments and refill requests, and/or help you receive medical advice. This medical advice may be from our triage nurse, who can help most families with most of their concerns, or with the "on call" physician. Please be advised that it has always been our policy for our "on call" physician to be contacted by our answering service if a parent requests this. This is at YOUR discretion -- it is not the decision of the answering service representitive.

After-Hours Appointments and "Urgent Care"

Not all problems that occur after-hours can wait until the next business day, but not all of those problems require the level of attention of a hospital's Emergency Department. However, we have been unhappy with the quality of care from many of the "urgent care" facilities in the community.

As of mid-February 2015, our practice has adjusted our hours of operation to provide more late-appointment availability in our office. We are extending our working hours for both "well" and "sick" visits three weekdays per week.We hope that this will help most of our families find after-hours care with the doctors in our practice. At times when non-emergency after-hours care is needed, but our office is closed, we recommend PM Pediatrics in Livingston, as that facility is staffed by pediatricians.
