We are committed to providing 24/7 access to medical advice and care. When the office is closed, simply call the main number (215-343-5520) to be directed to the physician on call or instructions on how to reach. If you believe your child needs to be seen on a weekend please call the covering physician in the morning, as we often arrange to see patients with acute medical problems on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.
It is always best to call in the morning for improved access to appointments. We encourage you to call us first before heading to the emergency department or urgent care center. Many times we can provide the most appropriate care in your medical home. If we are unable to do so, we can assist you in determining the best place for you to receive care and can communicate key health issues to other physicians as well as provide care coordination and follow-up.
If you are awake with an ill child in the middle of the night on a weekday
and want an appointment for the following day (but don't find it necessary to speak with us urgently), simply leave a message on our machine and the staff will return your call when they arrive in the office and give you early access to all available appointments.
