On Call / After Hours

Life Threatening Emergencies:

Call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.

Urgent Medical Problems:

Should an urgent medical problem arise, call us immediately. The pediatrician “on call” will be available to help you. When you call the office you will hear a recorded message stating when the office will reopen and the phone number to reach the “on call” doctor. The doctors of Vineland Pediatrics and Pediatric Associates share “on call” for evenings, weekends, and holidays. Our answering service’s direct number is (856) 974-5404. The answering service operator will tell you which doctor is on call and relay the message. If you do not receive a call within a reasonable amount of time, call back because the message may not have been relayed or received properly. Be sure you are leaving a valid, active, unblocked telephone number and use a land line if possible because cell phone connections frequently fail (eg. phone “out of range” or “turned off”, etc.).

Routine Medical Problems / Questions:

Please wait and call the office during regular hours.
