There is always a physician from our group available and on-call 24 hours a day, seven days a week for emergency assistance and after hours advice.
***Please be advised that there is a fee charged to your child's account for all after-hour calls to the physician. For after- hours assistance, please call 1-800-295-3556 to contact the on-call physician.
**When calling our On-Call After Hours Service, please be aware that the doctor may return your call using a "blocked" telephone number. In most cases the physician is calling you from their personal home or cell number and for privacy reasons they have blocked it. So if you have called our on-call after hours service and you are now waiting for a return call from Pediatric Associates of Alexandria, that blocked number calling you could be them, please pick up.
When you call, please provide the following information:
- Your phone number where you can be reached and your name
- Patient's name and age
- The problem providing symptoms and temperature if there is a fever
- Pertinent medical history (heart defect, diabetes, etc.)
