After Hours Care Q & A

When should I use After Hours Care?

When your child is experiencing sickness or injury, and it is after our regular business hours, Myrtle Avenue Pediatrics offers after hours care. Myrtle Avenue Pediatrics gives families the convenience of pediatric specialists, services, and technologies after regular physician office hours.

What services are provided at during After Hours Care?

Because injury and illness doesn’t always act on a schedule, especially when children are involved, Myrtle Avenue Pediatrics offers a wide variety of after hours services including:

  • Minor burns and lacerations
  • Sprains and strains
  • A cough, colds, and sore throat
  • Ear and sinus infections
  • Allergic and non-life-threatening allergic reactions
  • Fever and flu
  • Skin irritations and rashes
  • Insect bites and stings
  • Animal bites
  • Broken bones (not complicated or life threatening)
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Sports and limited work physicals

If you have an emergency service that is possibly, life threatening go to the nearest ER for immediate treatment.

What do I do if it is after-hours or the weekend?

If an urgent medical situation occurs after the office has closed and cannot wait until morning, it is recommended that you call our office first and request to speak to our on-call nurse. If the situation occurs on the weekend when we are closed or on a holiday, the same will apply. Remember that health is important and seeing a doctor for an urgent issue right away can stop it from becoming more serious.
