Our answering service starts taking our phone calls at 5pm. We stay in the evening only if our sick patient volume exceeds our daytime hours. Please call to schedule your child’s sick visit as early in the day as possible. Thank you.

*EFFECTIVE APRIL 2020 SATURDAY APPOINTMENTS ARE TELEMEDICINE ONLY DUE TO THE PENDEMIC; WE ANTICIPATE RESUMING IN-PERSON SATURDAY APPOINTMENTS IN SEPTEMBER 2021. Saturday we see acute need appointments only. Patients of both offices are seen at the on-call doctor’s site, alternating between Newark and Hockessin. Please call your doctor’s office number starting at 8:30am for an appointment.

After Hours

Routine questions and concerns are best handled during routine business hours. If your child has an acute medical problem or emergency after 5:00pm or during the weekend that cannot wait until the office opens, please call your primary office to reach our After Hours messaging service. We are pleased to offer expert nurse triage for minor problems through our after hours nurse triage service. One of our First State Pediatrics doctors will always be available on-call for serious concerns.
