Children with acute illnesses and emergencies are seen in Roanoke at scheduled times after hours Monday-Friday until 7:00p.m., and Saturday and Sunday by appointment only. To reach our after hours staff call (540) 345-3133.
Because of the demands placed upon us by children with acute illnesses and emergencies, we are unable to see children who have routine illnesses or non-acute problems after hours. We urge you to call our office during regular office hours for these types of problems.
After 7:00p.m., the provider on call or a licensed nurse takes emergency calls at home. He/she will remain on call until 8:00a.m. the following morning, when our office will reopen. The provider on call will attempt to respond promptly to urgent health care needs at night; however, he/she will not be willing to answer routine questions or discuss routine problems. These calls should be directed to our office during the daytime.
