Urgent Care

As our patients know, we are in the office all day Monday through Friday and in the morning on Saturday and Sunday.  We are always available by phone after hours through our main number.  If your child is ill or injured and needs to be seen outside of those times, we recommend the Hasbro Children’s Hospital emergency room in Providence.  If the issue does not require a hospital, please consider:

Health Information Portal

Our online health information portal (https://90.portal.athenahealth.com) allows parents to securely access basic heath information about his/her child. Due to confidentiality reasons, portal access for parents with children older than 13 years of age is limited.

NON-URGENT messages can be sent via the portal to your child’s doctor. If your child is sick or you need a refill or referral it is always best to CALL the office 401-884-8900 so that our staff can make sure that your needs are met in a timely matter.

If you would like to set up a portal account, please contact our office staff to fill out a “Patient Portal Proxy Access Request and Authorization Form” and we can help you get set up. Thank you for your patience while we roll out this exciting new feature for our patients and their families.
