Routine and Sick Visits: Our New Haven and Cheshire office hours have been extended as an additional consideration to our families. Both offices are open for regularly scheduled office and sick visits from 8:30am to 5pm Monday through Friday. Evening hours are available upon request Monday through Thursday in both offices. The New Haven office is also open on Saturdays, Sundays and all holidays from 9am to 12.
When making routine well appointments, feel free to choose an individual physician or nurse practitioner for your ongoing care. When calling for same day sick visits, there are physicians and nurse practitioners available Monday through Friday in both offices to accommodate you.
After hours coverage is always available by calling the main office numbers and working with the answering service. Please be sure your phone accepts “Blocked Calls” so that our physicians can return your calls as soon as possible. Check with your phone carrier for instructions if you need to adjust this feature on your phone. Please reserve non-urgent matters for regular office hours. Prescription refills and billing questions, for example, cannot be accommodated after hours.
Advice line staff is available in both offices from 7:30am to 7pm Monday to Thursday, 7:30 am to 5 pm on Friday and 8:30 am to 12 pm on weekends. They will respond to immediate health concerns, make appointments and discuss options for treatment. Our advice line staff is highly trained and should be able to respond to all of your requests quickly and accurately. If you would prefer to have your child seen urgently, please let the advice line staff know.
