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. As of mid-February 2015, our practice has adjusted our hours of operation to provide more late-appointment availability in our office. We have extended our working hours for both "well" and "sick" visits four 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.
