Childhood doesn’t pause. Neither does our care.
We are here close to home to help keep your kids healthy – and to serve their needs when they are sick or injured. That way, you can have peace of mind that you have a true partner when it comes to your child’s health and well-being
Open and ready when you need us
Kids are kids. They catch colds and sometimes might get injured. They need vaccinations and routine checkups. And they might have conditions that require close monitoring. Delaying these appointments can not only be harmful to your child’s immediate health but their long-term wellbeing.
That is why we’re located in your neighborhood with same-day sick appointments available, telehealth options, and close partnerships with urgent care centers for times that we are closed.
That way, your child can have access to the right, high-quality care at the right time. And your family can begin forging a lasting relationship with a pediatrician and pediatric-trained staff who know your child and their medical history personally.
For urgent same-day appointments
In the event of drowning, unconsciousness, severe injury, or another life-threatening emergency, call 911 immediately.
For your own convenience, always call for an appointment before coming to the office to minimize your wait time. We can always work an extra patient into our schedule, provided we have some advanced notice.
When scheduling an appointment for a same-day sick visit, please contact your office of choice:
Rancho Santa Margarita
Schedule an appointment for general pediatric care
If you are unable to keep your appointment, please call to cancel at least 24 hours in advance. We may have to reschedule your appointment if you are more than 20 minutes late.
If you are unsure what kind of care your child needs
If you believe your child has had a minor injury or illness, call our office and ask to speak to one of our nurses immediately. They will evaluate the situation and advise you to seek care in our office or request that you seek care from an emergency room.
If you would like advice on how to care for your child, one of our telephone advice nurses can help. Our nurses are trained to make decisions about patient care that need to be seen by a physician and how to provide home care for children that may not need to be seen by a physician.
