Winter Holidays Office Coverage

Written by Dr. Todd Harris

Illness does not recognize holidays, so here is how RCAM plans to be available during the holiday season:

It is our wish to be your child’s medical home – one place where all your child’s care resides or is known.

That means being available for questions:

  • Every day of the year one of our pediatricians is on call 24-hours-a-day for urgent health concerns.
  • If you ever have urgent concerns about your child’s health – you can always call us:
    • 919-781-7490
    • (If there is trouble with the above number, our on call backup number is 919-831-5526)

That means being available to be seen – even if it is a holiday or a weekend:

  • We strive to keep our patients out of Urgent Cares and Pharmacy Clinics.
  • Emergency Rooms provide a vital service but – when possible – we want to help you avoid
  • On weekends and holidays, we will see children with urgent medical concerns beginning in the morning by appointment only (call first – there are no walk-in appointments on holidays or weekends).
  • Christmas Day is the only day of the year that we do not see patients in our office (but we are available by phone all day).
