Our doctors are on call 7 days a week 24 hours a day. For problems that arise when the office is closed, we continue to be available through our answering service. You can access the system through our regular office telephone number. A pediatric triage nurse will return your call. If the call is not returned within one hour, please call again as no system is perfect. There is a $25 service fee not reimbursed by insurance for after hours’ calls. Patients can be seen on Weekends and Holidays in our office. These visits are scheduled by our after-hours nurse who can be reached through the answering service.
Our hospital of choice is MUSC Children's Hospital, and the only pediatric emergency room in the Charleston area. If you have a life threatening emergency – please call 911 and then notify our office.
If your child has swallowed a poison (or any questionable substance) please call Poison Control at 1-800-922-1117. Notify our office if you have any concerns.
