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:

  • Name
  • 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.
