Routine calls should be made during regular office hours. If you wish to have the on-call provider paged, call the office number and the answering service will take your information. Many questions can be answered by visiting the website from Nemours (Healthykids.org) or the AAP (Healthychildren.org). If you have us paged, please do not use caller ID block. We cannot call you back if your telephone requires caller ID. If you have not heard back within one hour, please call again.
