The After Hours Clinic is for those symptoms that can not wait until the next day when your regular doctor's office is open. Examples include a child with a high fever (103*), fractures, deep lacerations, vomiting and/or diarrhea for more than 24 hours, and contagious diseases. If your condition is more complex, we have specialists on-call who can be called in to assess and treat you as needed.
Some insurance plans may charge additional fees for using our After Hours Clinic. Please check your benefit plan for information.
All-Night Phone Nurses - It's 2 a.m. and your child is very ill; what do you do? You call the After Hours number, (512) 346-6611. Your call will go to our answering service, who will call the all-night phone nurse. He/she will call you at home and together you will decide on the most appropriate course of action -- page the doctor on call, direct you to the emergency room, or offer home care suggestions (if appropriate). If the on-call doctor suggests that you follow up with your regular doctor the next business day, the night triage nurse can sometimes make the appointment for you. The night triage nurses are very experienced nurses and are available to help you whenever you call!
As a patient with any ARC physician you can use all of our convenient services and have access to care 24/7, every day of the year. Easy access to care is just a part of the ARC Advantage.
