For any life-threatening emergencies, call 911 for emergency medical services. These include any emergency in which your child may require resuscitation, such as severe difficulty breathing, severe allergic reaction, or a seizure.
For any non-life-threatening emergency, please call our office at (215) 269-3330
during business hours or go to the emergency room. When calling our office, please let the person who answers the phone know this is an emergency; do not let them put you on-hold. If you call after the office is closed, our voicemail will tell you how to contact the answering service to page the doctor on-call (do not leave a message on the voicemail for emergencies, as we only check it every one to two hours). If you don’t hear back from the doctor on-call within 20 minutes, call again or go to the emergency room.
For poisoning, call poison control at (215) 386-2100
or (800) 222-1222
