On weekends, calls for same day after-hours sick appointments are accepted beginning at 8:00 a.m. with the first appointment typically scheduled at 9:00 a.m. The After-Hours Clinic will remain open until 5:00 p.m. each Saturday and Sunday. The weekend After-Hours Clinic is typically staffed by two physicians and two nurses in the morning and one physician and one nurse in the afternoon.
Nurse Triage System
Once the After-Hours Clinic closes, all calls are routed to a nurse triage system. The triage system is staffed by registered nurses who can assist you with most of your questions and concerns. The triage nurses can also contact the on-call CMG physician if needed.
All visits are by appointment only to minimize waiting time for you and your child. We are committed to offering SAME-DAY sick appointments because we believe that your sick child should be seen in the timeliest manner. Check-up appointments can be made at any time. Our phone lines open at 8:00 am each day. Our receptionists will take your information and send a message to your physician’s nurse who will return your call as soon as possible.
