For general inquiries

  • Contact your provider or nurse through your child’s MyChart account (please allow 2 business days for a response)
  • Use Symptom Checker to decide what care is needed and how to get speedy relief from common illnesses or injuries that you can manage on your own.
  • Refer to the Medication Dosages Tables
  • Call a Consulting Nurse:
    Most insurance companies offer FREE after-hours nurse consultation telephone numbers. Look for the contact numbers listed on your insurance card. (Please verify the after-hours nurse consultation service on your insurance card; not all groups participate in this benefit.) For your convenience, we have listed a few of these numbers below:

For urgent needs

  • If your child is experiencing life-threatening symptoms, CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY.
  • For urgent, but not life-threatening issues (e.g., broken bones, bleeding that won’t stop, severe burns, seizures, fainting, etc.), take your child to an emergency room.
  • For serious issues or illnesses that require medical attention outside of normal office hours, call our office line (253-383-5777) and the on-call nurse will return your call within 30 minutes.

Please do not use the after-hours consultation service for routine questions or routine medication refills.
