GPM Pediatrics offers many benefits for parents. Some of our benefits include 24/7 provider coverage for emergencies; our providers take emergency calls after hours on weekdays, weekends, and holidays. We also offer same-day appointments depending on each individual’s case. In urgent cases, we give immediate support and offer weekend and evening hours for sick visits.
If your child becomes acutely ill after office hours and cannot wait till the next morning, please call either 718.833.2300 or 718.982.6800 and a provider will call you as soon as possible. Most calls are returned within the hour.
The provider will then determine the proper course of action for your child whether it’s support via phone or arrange a morning appointment. In more severe cases, we will direct you to urgent care or the ER (emergency room), if necessary.
Please save non-urgent questions regarding matters such as appointments, prescription refills, school forms, referral requests, etc. for office hours.
