After Hours Call Group
I am associated with 9 other pediatricians and nurses with whom I share patient calls after hours. I believe that you will enjoy and profit from this association. You will not only benefit from excellent telephone advice from experienced medical professionals but will have access to extended weekend sick visit hours available in a first class medical facility.
If you feel your child needs to be seen before my regular office hours during the week, there will be open office hours every Saturday and Sunday morning around 9 am to 12 noon. Families are suggested to go to Peachwood Medical Group on Herndon and Villa in Clovis. Pediatricians usually staff that facility.
I am still the only one you will see during regular office hours. I am now in a group practice. In the Magnolia office I share space with Janice Pitman. Ishare call with other pediatricians who are in different locations.
As always when you have questions after hours, you can refer to my childcare advice in the menu bar above. I am proud to say that the information on this site was used in the past by Valley Children’s Hospital Poison Control Centers as the basis of the telephone advice they give to callers all over California and for the ChildNet Medical Associates Web site.
Hospital care of your child
There may be some situations when your child is ill or has a health problem requiring hospitalization at Valley Children’s Hospital. I work with general pediatricians (hospitalists) based at the hospital to assist with the care of your child. They will be responsible for your child’s care while they are in the hospital. After their care is complete I will take over care.
