Office Policies

After Hours

Dr. Rosenberg takes emergency calls from his home after hours. Call the main office number, and you will be given directions on how to reach Dr. Rosenberg.

Please save routine questions (mild illness, appointments, prescription refills, form requests) for normal business hours. We encourage you to refer to our website first, when practical, before calling the doctor.

 

Emergencies

If a true medical emergency should arise, please call 911 immediately, BEFORE calling the office. Emergencies are considered to be those conditions that are life-threatening: loss of consciousness, severe bleeding, extreme difficulty breathing, etc. In the case of minor emergencies (lacerations, cuts, mild fractures, sprains), please call our office first for instructions. Most minor emergencies can be handled well in the office, avoiding a trip (and likely a long wait!) to the Emergency Room.

Sick Visits

We make every effort to schedule appointments for ill children on the day that you call us. Please call our office ahead of time so that we can minimize the time that you will spend waiting. If you have a medical emergency during office hours, we will do our best to see your child immediately or refer you to the appropriate facility.

If you would like us to see more than one child, please schedule both of them when you make your appointment. Without an appointment, we may not be able to see a sick sibling right away, and you may be asked to wait while the doctor sees a scheduled patient who may be waiting.

 

Walk-Ins

Patients who walk in with a non-emergency condition will be fit into the existing schedule as best as possible, or they will be asked to return later in the day when the schedule allows.

However, we STRONGLY suggest calling the office prior to walking in so we can give you an appointment that will minimize wait times and allow for the best overall flow of patients through the schedule.

 

Well Visits

To keep your children healthy, it is important to bring them in for regular checkups. We recommend that you call in advance so you may choose the date that best fits your needs. The list below is our recommended schedule for Well Child Visits:

  • Visits in the first month will be determined on a case by case basis.
  • One Month
  • Two Months
  • Three Months
  • Four Months
  • Five Months
  • Six Months
  • Nine Months
  • Twelve Months
  • Eighteen Months
  • Twenty-Four Months
  • Yearly, ages 3 years and up

We see babies at least monthly in the first six months of life to keep a closer eye on them and to ensure no more than two shots are given at any one visit.
