If your child is ill, after regular office hours, you can call the after-hours nurse line staffed by a pediatric trained Registered Nurse. Their direct number is 1 (855) 456-6976. The nurse will give you advice on what you can do to care for your child until our office is open or can direct you to the appropriate after-hours facility if it is more urgent.
If your child appears extremely ill, you should dial 911 or go to the nearest emergency room if time allows. We recommend Children's Medical Center in Dallas or on Legacy, or Medical City Children's Hospital on Forest Lane.
If your child is ill and is not in an extreme state, you could call the nurse line or go to one of the Pediatric after-hours clinics. They are staffed by Pediatricians and can provide care after our office hours on weekdays and weekends. Most pediatric after-hour clinics bill office or urgent care co-pay rates.
