Sick Visits

We know that when your child is ill you want to do everything you can to make him or her quickly feel better. All of our providers have time allocated in their daily schedules to see sick children.

With our in-house laboratory we can perform many tests, such as rapid strep, flu, RSV, pulse oximetry, peak flow, urinalysis, hemoglobin, and blood glucose.

 

We are prepared to evaluate and treat fever, pain, respiratory infections, allergies, asthma flare-ups, minor lacerations, wounds, burns, foreign body removal, suture removal, eye infections or abrasions, ticks, splinters, and many other illnesses. Our offices are equipped with supplies and medications to initiate the treatment of your child’s problem.

Triage Calls

For truly life-threatening emergency, call 911.

When you are unsure if your child should be brought into the office, our specially trained triage nurses are available to help you by telephone during our office hours. When there is a high volume of calls, the triage nurse may need to return your call promptly. There are times when the phones are answered by the answering service, such as during lunch or staff meetings. In New Fairfield, the phones are turned over to either the Danbury office or the answering service from approximately 12:15 to 1:15 Monday through Friday. This is done to allow the staff the opportunity to have lunch and to follow up with patients. After office hours we have a pediatric nurse triage line which can assist you. One of our doctors is available 24/7, as well, for priority calls.

Appointments

Appointments are reserved in our schedule to see your sick child on the same day you call.

Convenient schedule, we’re open 7 days a week. Monday through Wednesday with extended evening hours, and 362 days per year.
