Lab Services

A Quest phlebotomist is located at our Raritan office to draw most requested tests. In some instances, depending on managed care requirements, we will refer the child directly to the laboratory where the necessary test is to be done.

After Hours

One of our clinicians will be on call each evening after 9pm, weekend and holiday. Services are intended to be for those children who have an acute condition requiring immediate intervention. Problems of less than urgent nature should be addressed during regular hours. If the doctor is not at the office at the time of your after hours call, the answering service will take your name, phone number and information regarding the problem. Calls will be relayed to the clinician. If the matter is urgent please make this clear to the operator. Night-time calls will be referred to a special Pediatric Nurse Triage Service. The professionally trained nurse will evaluate your child’s problem, provide information and advice. The on-call clinician will be called if the problem requires a physician's attention. Please remove your caller ID and call block to receive a call back.

Consent by Proxy:

The clinicians cannot provide non-emergent care to any patient accompanied by someone other than their parents or legal guardian. The parents are required to provide us with written documentation of their consent. In extreme circumstances, verbal consent will be accepted. Parents should anticipate these visits and arrange for the person bringing the child to the office have written consent from the parent or legal guardian.
