Sick Child Visits
We make every effort to schedule appointments for ill children on the day that you call us. Please call our office ahead of time so that we can minimize the time that you will spend waiting. If you have a medical emergency during office hours, we will do our best to see your child immediately or refer you to the appropriate facility.
If you would like us to see more than one child, please schedule both of them when you make your appointment. Without an appointment, we may not be able to see a sick sibling right away, and you may be asked to wait while the provider sees a scheduled patient who may be waiting.
Walk-In Hours & Saturday Sick Appointments
We offer Walk-In hours Monday through Friday from 7:30am-8:30am in the Linthicum office AND 8:00am-9:00am (Arnold Office Walk-Ins: To be seen for Walk-Ins, Patients must arrive no later than 8:45am. Patients that arrive after 8:45 a.m. will be scheduled in the next available office visit) in the Arnold office. Please use these times for any same day sick walk-in appointments. All other office visits will require an appointment except in the case of an emergency.
*WE DO NOT OFFER WALK-IN HOURS ON SATURDAYS, ALL SATURDAY VISITS ARE BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.
After Hours Appointments, which include Mon-Fri 7:30am-8:30am and Saturday visits 9:00am-12:00pm. These visits will be billed to your insurance company to reflect a service performed by your provider outside of regular business hours which are Monday - Friday 9:00am- 5:00pm. In the event that your insurance company does not cover the additional fee for a service performed outside of regular business hours, you may be billed for the balance. You may contact your insurance company prior to the visit to determine if the additional fee is a covered service so that you may make an informed decision.
If an emergency should arise, please call 911. Emergencies are considered to be those conditions that are life-threatening: loss of consciousness, severe bleeding, seizure, etc. In the case of minor emergencies (lacerations, cuts, mild fractures, sprains), please call our office first for instructions.
