The emergency room is designed for just what it says – emergencies. Emergency room physicians are very skilled at dealing with critical life and death situations.
Routine care issues and most urgencies are better handled with your primary care pediatrician at Canyon View Pediatrics. Canyon View pediatricians have all trained in the Emergency Room, Intensive Care Unit, Neonatal intensive Care Unit, and Pediatric Floor of one of the finest pediatric hospitals in America — Primary Children’s Hospital. We have cared for a broad range of emergent, life threatening disorders. If you’re not sure whether you should go to the office or ER, please use our emergency line (extension 5) and ask us – we’ll be glad to let you know. We are always willing to attend to urgencies and emergencies that can be handled in the office without an appointment.
