We are fortunate to work in an area with many great pediatric colleagues. As physicians we want to know that our patients are happy and healthy both in our office and after hours.
As a result, many of us take call and are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in order to help navigate patient care and help guarantee the best outcomes for our children.
Beverly Hills Pediatrics After Hours is here to help you do this. As a pediatric after hours urgent care facility we want to cut down on the long wait times our patients endure in the emergency department and avoid the exorbitant rates they are charged.
We also want to guarantee that a pediatrician will see your patient. How many times have you gotten a phone call from a patient after they went to an outside urgent care without a pediatric specialist only to find the incorrect dosage of medication was prescribed for an ear infection or they were treated for strep throat without being tested for it?
Continuity of care is very important to us. Therefore, we will fax your patient’s visit note to their primary care doctor. This allows you to stay informed about your patient’s health and helps them follow up with you appropriately.
Beverly Hills Pediatrics After Hours is not a replacement for you, but we are merely helping to get your patient safely through the “after hours” (until they can see you).
How do you benefit?
- Decreases your after hours phone calls
- Continuity of care- you will receive a record of your patient’s visit in a timely manner; you can also call ahead on your patient’s behalf (if you wish)
- Peace of mind that your patient is getting an appropriate pediatric evaluation when you are not available
