Reaching a Doctor After Hours
Chestnut Ridge Pediatrics is available to our patients on a 24/7/365 basis. We encourage concerned parents to call us at any time to discuss medical issues with their children.
If the office is closed and you have a medical emergency that cannot wait until the office reopens, you may reach our answering service by calling the office at 201.391.2020 and following the instructions.
Please note, if you have a privacy manager or private call blocker, you will not receive a call back from the on-call doctor. To deactivate the privacy manager, pick up your phone and dial *87, then hang up. If you do not receive a call back from the on-call doctor, the most likely reason is that you have not deactivated your privacy manager.
For all non-urgent matters, please call the office during normal business hours.
