Whether you're a new parent or an old pro, you've likely learned that your children's illnesses and injuries always seem to happen at the most inconvenient time, typically on weekends or after business hours after medical facilities have ended for the day. At Riverside Pediatrics, LLC in Greenwich, CT, our children's health care providers - Dr. Karen Beckman and Dr. Alejandro Mones - understand this unfortunate reality, which is why we offer after-hours services to our patients. We explain the benefits of this practice here:
Avoiding emergency rooms when possible
Although you want treatment for your child as soon as they develop a medical issue, some problems aren't considered true emergencies. When after-hours problems arise, you may be tempted to make a trip to the hospital ER. However, busy emergency rooms treat their patients in order of severity, and a low-grade fever and stomachache will likely be put near the bottom of the priority list. Our after-hours schedule at Riverside Pediatrics, LLC in Greenwich make seeing a doctor for minor problems easier and quicker. We are available to all children (even those that are not members of our daytime practice), and we accept most major insurances.
Available when emergencies happen
Sickness and accidents can't be scheduled between the hours of 8 AM and 5 PM. Perhaps your son started feeling badly after lunch but doesn't show signs of true illness until later in the evening. Or maybe your daughter sprained her ankle during cheerleading practice after school. Regardless of the ailment, our board certified pediatricians are available every weekday after hours and on weekend and holiday mornings, ensuring that your child will receive the best possible care in the Greenwich area regardless of the calendar.
Better fit for your schedule
At Riverside Pediatrics, LLC we know that working parents have to constantly juggle their schedules. Doctor's appointments during the middle of the day may not work with the tasks you have to complete, particularly if you travel for your job. Bringing your child to our pediatrician's office during the evening hours may be exactly what you and your child need.
Our after-hours schedule at Riverside Pediatrics, LLC is as follows: Monday through Thursday from 5 PM to 8 PM, and Saturdays, Sundays and holidays from 9 AM to 12 PM. Please note that there are no after-hours visits on Fridays. Please contact us for more information.
