After Hours Care Q&A

Why might my child need after-hours care?

The providers at ADM Parham Pediatrics help young patients from infancy to adolescence with their health and wellness needs. In addition to regular wellness checks and sports physicals, Dr. Samman and his team provide after-hours care for health concerns that strike outside of a typical 9-5 working schedule. 

After-hours care can help with pediatric issues like:

  • High fever
  • Ear infections
  • Flu and COVID-19
  • Vomiting and diarrhea
  • Minor injuries, such as cuts, burns, and sprains
  • Asthma attacks or allergies

After hours care is also helpful if your child has trouble breathing or a suspected broken bone. You may also seek after-hours care if your child has a complication due to a chronic condition, like asthma.

How can I benefit from after-hours care?

Illness and injury don’t always strike during traditional medical office hours. In fact, many illnesses peak overnight and can be quite scary for a parent. After-hours care gives you access to a medical professional when your child needs it, not when it’s convenient for the business. 

If your child exhibits concerning symptoms, you can use after-hours care to ease your mind and know that they will be OK until the next morning when the office opens. You can also use after-hours care to get tips on managing your child’s serious symptoms, including how to manage a severe cough or bring down a high fever. In severe cases, after-hours care can help you decide whether you should take your child to an emergency room. 

How do I know my child needs after-hours care?

If your child exhibits worrisome symptoms, don’t hesitate to call the office or Dr. Samman at 804-665-5457. The doctor or staff listens to your concerns and can tell you what to watch for in your child. If they believe your child needs emergency or urgent care, they’ll let you know what your next steps should be.

ADM Parham Pediatrics is open from 8 am-5 pm Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, as well as 2 pm-6 pm on Sundays. If you need care outside of these hours, still reach out. Call the office or use the online tool to learn more about how to reach Dr. Samman.
