After Hours Procedures

If you feel it is a medical emergency dial 911.  Emergencies include rapid or difficulty breathing, seizure, loss of consciousness or any time you do not think you can wait to receive a call back.

We do not want you to worry about your child after hours or on weekends.  Our goal is complete care of you child.  You can feel assured, that you can reach us 24 hrs a day/ 365 days a year. If you have urgent questions, please call our office and listen to the prompts and you will be connected to the doctor on call.  You will receive a call from either Dr Franczyk or another pediatrician from our call group. The doctor on call, can give you advice to help you decide, if you child needs to be to go to the Emergency room or can be seen the next day by us.  If your call is not returned within 1 hour please call back to make sure we received your message.
We have sick/urgent visits every weekend and you will always be seen by a pediatrician.  We do not want you to have to wait in an emergency room or a walk in clinic.  These visits are generally from 9AM to 12PM, on both Saturday and Sunday.  Please call early if you would like your child seen.  Weekend appointments will be at our office or at the office of my call group.  They are located within 2 miles of the office and the visit will always be with a pediatrician.
