Welcome to Ambler Pediatrics!

The Telephone and Doctor Availability

Our office has not established a set time for telephone calls, preferring to permit you to call whenever you feel a need. However, it would help everyone if you would call at the beginning of office hours if you think we may need to see your child.  Please call between 9:00 and 11:00 AM if possible.  However, if you have a question or a problem that cannot wait, please do not hesitate to call at any other time.  The providers always carry a phone and can be reached at any time, 24 hours a day. In an emergency the doctor or PNP will speak to you immediately.  Under other circumstances, you may be asked to speak with a nurse or other appropriate staff member.  If you wish to speak with a particular provider, who is with a patient, the nurse or receptionist will request your name and telephone number, and that person will call you back as soon as possible. There is no charge for telephone consultation.

After hours, or whenever we are not in the office, our calls are routed by a computerized answering system that will call the physician if you have a medical emergency.  Simply dial the office telephone number, 215- 643‑7771, and the tape will explain how the system works. You have the option of leaving your name and telephone number after a beep, in which case the system will signal the physician-on-call immediately. If for any reason you are not called back within ten minutes, please call again. This would indicate that we were not able to understand your number, or your cell phone did not have a clear connection.

If you are ever in a situation when you do not feel you can safely wait for a return call from our office, call 911. If your child has possibly ingested a toxic substance, call Poison Control immediately. The telephone number is (800) 222-1222. You might want to put this number in your speed dial or keep it on your refrigerator.

For less urgent matters, you may find it more efficient to communicate with us via email. Our email address is apeds@amblerpeds.com or you can use the form available from the menu button.
