                                             CMG Before Hours starts July 1!

We are very pleased to offer Before Hours, a walk-in service at for sick children. The office is open at 7 a.m. Monday-Friday to allow sick children to be seen without an appointment. Children arriving between 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. will be evaluated on a first-come, first-served basis. No Saturday walk-in appointments, if you would like your child to be seen on a Saturday, please call for a same day appointment. 

Before Hours enables parents to have their sick children examined early in the morning, so that decisions about school and work can be made as quickly as possible. Knowing that children can be seen early should be of some comfort through the night and make planning for the next day a bit easier. We also hope that this service will help you avoid nighttime trips to urgent care facilities, where pediatric evaluation and management can be spotty.

Before Hours is intended for relatively simple, acute symptoms such as fever, ear pain, sore throat, cough, pink eye and the like. The doctor will be moving quickly from patient to patient in order to attend to families as expeditiously as possible. Before Hours is not meant for evaluation of chronic conditions, which often take longer to properly evaluate. We ask that regular appointments be made for longer standing issues and regular checkups. Early morning is not the only time to have sick children seen. We of course continue to offer same-day sick appointments throughout the day, every day.

Again, our phone lines do not turn on until 8:00 am. You do not need an appointment for Before Hours; just come on in!
