After Hours Care
Our office is open Monday through Friday from 8AM to 12 Noon and 1:30PM to 5PM (please note that phones turn off at 4:30PM). Walk-in hours are from 8AM to 9AM for established patients only - please see more information regarding walk-in clinic on our Policies page.
Should you have an emergent question outside of those hours, you may call the office phone which will direct you to the Children’s Mercy Triage nurses. These nurses are pediatric nurses with extensive training who will help answer your questions, or direct you to an after hours provider, should your child require one immediately. Please review our Policies page for additional information regarding after-hours calls.
In addition, we have provided several links to websites that have comprehensive answers to many of your questions. These include the website for the American Academy of Pediatrics’ new information center, www.healthychildren.org. There, you can either put your question into the search box or click on “Health Issues” to find answers to your questions. Another site with comprehensive information on a very broad range of subjects is from the University of Michigan, www.med.umich.edu. Click “Patients” to find your topic of interest.
