A doctor from our practice is on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
- When the office is closed, please call the main office number (310) 458-1714 and you will be directed to our after hours answering service.
- After the office closes there is only one doctor on call for the entire practice. We are happy to return all calls, but would appreciate receiving calls regarding medicine refills or minor problems during our regular office hours.
If your child needs to be seen after hours, the on-call doctor will direct you to the appropriate Emergency Room. We routinely send families to UCLA-Santa Monica Hospital (the ER entrance is on 15th St between Wilshire and Arizona) or to Providence-Saint Johns (only for minor trauma that can be handled in the ER since they do NOT have an in-patient pediatric unit). On occasion, we may send you to UCLA-Westwood, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center or Children's Hospital LA.
