For life-threatening emergencies call 911 for an ambulance.
For urgent but non life-threatening problems
You may call our on-call physician at 410-465-7550 and press the number 8 during times that our office is closed.
Our physician's speak English only. Please speak slowly and leave us the following information:
- Phone Number
- Child's Name and Age
- A very brief description of the child's problem
Most problems can be handled over the phone with advice until the next working day. However, if the on-call physician determines that an emergency room visit is needed, he/she will recommend and authorize the visit. Authorization by the primary care physician is required by most managed care insurance companies for reimbursement.
Please save your non-urgent calls for our regular office hours.
Messages left on the non-urgent voicemail system while the office is closed will be returned within 2 business days.
