In the event of an emergency, please dial “911” or go to the nearest Emergency Center.
If your child has an emergent medical issue that cannot wait to be addressed until the next business day, you may have the on-call physician paged. You can reach the physician on call by calling our office at 256-413-1467. There will be a short pause, then the call will be picked up by the answering service. We strive to return each call within 30 minutes. If you do not receive a call within that time, please call back.
Please note that it is the policy of all physicians at Etowah Pediatrics that antibiotics and narcotic cough syrup will not be prescribed over the phone.
If you have a non-emergent issue please wait and call the office during office hours to get the quickest care.
