Emergencies & Hospitals
In the event of a life threatening emergency or serious accident, always take your child to the nearest emergency room. However, if you have a choice please take your child to Chippenham ER, due to its excellent Pediatric ER. Ask someone to notify the office, if possible, before leaving for the hospital so that we might assist you.
If your child is experiencing an emergency and you cannot get through on our phone line, please call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room. The Poison Control Center’s number is 804-828-9123 or 1-800-222-1222. One of our physicians is always on call when our office is closed in order to handle after-hours emergencies.
Our physicians have privileges at CJW Medical Center’s Chippenham and Johnston-Willis campuses. Please be aware that your insurance company may not pay for services rendered at these facilities.
