Office Information

Location
Our office is located on East Arlington Boulevard, between Red Banks Rd and Fire Tower Rd. It's less than 1/4 mile south of Red Banks Rd, on the east side of Arlington Blvd. Our address is:

     Eastern Pediatrics, P.A.
     913 East Arlington Boulevard
     Greenville, NC 27858
     Telephone (252) 561-7777

Hours
Our office is open Monday through Friday 8:30 - 5:00 for regularly scheduled appointments. Same day appointments are available; however, call as early as you can so we can give you an appointment time - this will hopefully limit the amount of time you have to wait in the office. Walk-in patients will be worked into the schedule; however, the wait may be longer.

Eastern Pediatrics does participate in the Pediatric After Hours Clinic at the Brody School of Medicine. You should call our office or speak to the provider on call before going to the After Hours Clinic. The After Hours Clinic is open from 6:00 - 10:00 every night of the year for children up to age 18 who need immediate medical attention for non-life-threatening emergencies.

For life-threatening emergencies call 911, or go directly to the emergency room at Pitt County Emergency Hospital.


Waiting Room
We request, when possible, that you limit the number of children, friends, and relatives accompanying your child to the office. We understand, of course, that on occasion babysitting or transportation problems may leave you no choice. Eastern Pediatrics makes an effort to limit the transmission of illness by providing separate waiting rooms for well children and children with acute illness. We do not provide toys in the office due to the difficulty of keeping them clean throughout the day and toys in the office transmit many of the illnesses that we try to protect your child from. We suggest that parents bring a small toy or book to entertain their child during an appointment.

Phone Calls & Advice
We have taken time to provide valuable links on this website that may answer many of your concerns and encourage you to explore the links. We have also provided a link for refill requests for your convenience. Our skilled clinical staff is available from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. When calling the office please be prepared to give us the following information: your child's name (first and last), your child's date of birth, symptoms, temperature, length of illness, and any treatments you have given your child. If the problem requires the doctor's attention, the doctor will return your call at the earliest opportunity. For non-emergency advice or information, call mid-morning to mid-afternoon when our phone lines are less busy. Some problems cannot be evaluated over the telephone and you will be instructed to schedule an appointment. Additionally, if you remain concerned after receiving advice from our clinical staff, call and arrange for a physician to see your child.

Telephone calls after hours are for urgent problems only. Non-urgent matters such as refill requests and scheduling appointments should wait until office hours. For an urgent problem, one of our doctors can be reached by calling our main number 561-7777. We strive to provide personalized care and develop a personalized relationship with our families; therefore, our doctors take call directly without the use of an answering service. Please keep in mind our doctors have busy family lives like yourself. If the doctor does not answer the phone leave a message, if your call is not returned in 20 minutes please call back. Currently we do not charge for such calls although this is becoming the norm for pediatric offices.
