After Hours Phone Coverage

For urgent care, questions and/or concerns that cannot safely wait until the next business day, call our after hours on-call number and have the physician on-call paged.


Starting January 3, 2023: Call 1-833-957-4483

  • Please note this number is for emergencies only, and we ask that routine calls for your provider or the office wait until the office is open during regular business hours. Please keep in mind that our physicians are not at the hospital or office, they are at home with their families.
  • Our providers rotate call coverage therefore the on-call provider is unlikely the same provider you saw in the office that day.
  • The on-call provider may not have access to you chart at the time of the call; therefore, when the provider calls please present your reason for calling clearly and succinctly. Also please inform the provider of any chronic medical problems your child may have.
  • Our providers cannot make medical diagnosis over the phone. We only can provide advice and depending on your concerns may refer you to an urgent care or pediatric emergency room. The on-call provider will not call in medications. There are no exceptions. If you feel your child is not well and needs a medication, they must be seen.
  • Arundel Pediatrics reserves the right to bill you for advice given after hours.
