How do we approach acute care?

On Wednesdays and Fridays I am in the office and happy to see your child for a same day appointment in person or via telemedicine. 

On Monday, Tuesday and Thursday there are providers at the office to answer urgent questions and help direct you to Urgent Care or the ER if needed. 

If you have been seen by Urgent Care or the ER and would like to discuss the visit or consider more integrated options in addition to your traditional treatment plan, please reach out and we will try to accommodate a short telemedicine appointment on a Wednesday or Friday for this.

What do I do if I need help after hours?

This is a great resource for traditional management of common childhood illnesses and concerns. Also can help you to make the decision of whether your child needs to be seen immediately or it can wait until the following morning. 

Children’s Hospital ParentSmart Hotline: 720-777-0123 

A great resource after hours if you need to know whether or not to bring your child in to be seen the night before we open the following morning. 

If you have a question specifically about a concern that has been addressed at an office or telemedicine visit that only I can answer after hours, I do take after hours call. With this being said, I have my own littles at home and do love sleep, please use this with the utmost respect and thought after hours.

Immunization Non-medical Exception: 
Follow this link to watch the “Online Immunization Education Video” and then print out and sign the certificate that you receive following the video to submit. My signature is not required if you do it this way.

Immunization Medical Exceptions: 
These are extremely rare. The law currently stands that a medical exemption can be written for a specific vaccine if your child has had an anaphylactic reaction to that vaccine. If there has been a more mild reaction, a waiver cannot be written. If you child had an anaphylactic reaction to one specific vaccine, unfortunately, a medical exception cannot be written for all of the required childhood diseases. If you wish to not vaccinate, the above form is most appropriate.
