In a true life-threatening emergency, it is best to call 911 or go to the emergency room so that treatment can begin at once. However, it is also important to contact us so that we can reach the E.R. doctor. If you have an emergency after hours, call the office number (212) 529-4330 to speak with an operator who will page the doctor on call.
We offer 24-hour coverage as a service to you for emergencies and ask that you use this service appropriately. We do not cross cover with any other groups, so your call will be returned directly by one of our doctors. Please leave your child’s full name and age, your telephone number and a brief message about the problem with the operator. All calls are returned as promptly as possible. However, if we have not responded in a reasonable time, please try us again.
