If an emergency should arise, please call 911.
In the case of minor emergencies, please call our office first and we will work you into the schedule as quickly as possible. However, some minor emergencies may require ER evaluation.
If an emergency should arise, please call 911. Emergencies are considered to be those conditions that are life-threatening.
We will do our best to stay on schedule; however, please remember that some patients may take longer than anticipated or we may be treating an emergency. We ask for your patience during those times and assure you that we will do all that we can to get to you in a timely manner. As time is important to all of us, if you are late for your appointment, you may be asked to reschedule to a later time or date.
We also recommend the following timeline as a planner for key health care decisions you can make for your child.
Two weeks to one month before your child is born: Register at the hospital. PineyWoods Pediatrics, P.A. is affiliated with both Nacogdoches Medical Center and Nacogdoches Memorial Hospital. When you register at the hospital, please let them know the name of the pediatrician you selected if you’re unsure, just say “PineyWoods Pediatrics”, so that your baby will be seen by one of our physicians. You do not have to register your child ahead of time at PineyWoods Pediatrics, but we do encourage a prenatal visit.
When your child is born: Your physician will follow your child's progress each day in the hospital.
- when your child should start to get better and what the plan would be if he or she isn't feeling better (should you just call or return for a recheck);
- signs or symptoms that might indicate that your child is getting worse;
- when you should return for a follow-up appointment (this is especially important for more chronic conditions like asthma and allergies);
- how long you should take any prescribed medications and their side effects;
- when your child will no longer be contagious and can return to daycare or school.
PineyWoods Pediatrics, P.A. offers convenient clinic hours for sick visits!
