Appointments:

Patients are seen by appointment only. Appointments can be made by calling (361) 853-3222. The office receptionists begin taking phone calls for the day at 8:00 AM Monday through Saturday, and at 9:00 AM on Sundays. If you wish, you can call our office after office hours and leave a recorded message for our receptionists requesting an appointment for the next day. Our receptionists check these messages as soon as they arrive in the morning, and will call you back with your appointment time. If you are ever unable to get through to our main number, you may call our exchange at (361) 887-5719.

If you are unable to keep a "well check" appointment, please give us 24 hours notice. If you are unable to keep a "sick child" appointment, please notify us as soon as possible. This way, we can offer that time to other families.

Telephone advice and Refills:

Routine questions are received during regular office hours. Leave your question or request with the receptionist, and a nurse or doctor will return your call when possible. All calls are returned the same day.

Please have your prescriptions refilled during regular office hours. Simply call your pharmacy and give your prescription number and the pharmacist will then call us for approval. Please try to do this a day or two before you actually need the medication refilled. Refills will not be done after office hours, except in emergency situations. Narcotics or ADD medications are never refilled after office hours. You may be asked to see your child's doctor for an office visit before a prescription is refilled.

After Hours Care:

One of our pediatricians is available at all hours. If you need help with a sick child during the night or weekends, call our office at (361) 853-3222. A recorded message will inform you of which doctor is on call, and you will be put in touch with that doctor. If you are ever unable to reach the doctor on call through our main number, you may call our exchange at (361) 887-5719. In the case of a life-threatening emergency, please call 911.

Please save routine questions about your child for office hours.
