Please call 911 if there is a life threatening emergency.
What to Do if Your Child Needs Immediate Care
24 hours per day, you can call our main number at 703.344.7330. There is always a medical provider from the practice on call 365 days per year.
Our after hours line is intended for urgent and emergency situations. These calls incur a $20 fee to provide full staffing at all hours. A central call service will take your information and forward this information to a pediatric certified nurse. Calls are triaged and prioritized by urgency. For less urgent calls, it may be up to 60 minutes before you are called back. Usually it is much faster, but there are times when large volumes of calls come in due to high rates of illness. In most situations a well trained pediatric nurse will be able to answer clinical questions. Some calls will be forwarded to one of our on call providers for more challenging and/or concerning medical issues . Questions about infant care, feeding, medication refills and other non urgent matters are best sent to the patient portal or called in during our regular business hours for no fee.
