About the Practice
After-Hours Care & Emergencies
If your child has a medical problem outside of regular office hours, you can call our office 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at (860) 648-2447. In the evenings, on weekends, on holidays, or during any other hours that our office is closed, Dr. Orta or another pediatrician will be available to you. If our office is closed, your call will be received by the answering service. Within a short time, the physician on-call will get back to you.
Children with medical emergency problems will be referred to Connecticut Children’s Medical Center. Children with urgent medical problems can be seen on weekend mornings by Dr. Orta or the covering physician by appointment.
