Behavioral Consults

Dr. Lancaster has further training in pediatric development and behavior. She has experience in the care and treatment of children with anxiety, autism, and ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, types primarily inattentive, hyperactive, and combined). Dr. Lancaster sees children for behavioral consult appointments generally after school. If you feel that your child needs an urgent consultation, this visit may occur during school hours.

Sick Visits

Sick children will be seen on the same day whenever possible with appointments.
Please call after 9:00 am to schedule an appointment. Appointments cannot be scheduled before the office opens at 9:00 am. If you desire additional sick siblings to be seen, please mention this when making the appointment so that we can accommodate you.

Please note: Dr. Lancaster does not have walk-in hours. Sick children are seen by appointment.

After Hours Care

Dr. Lancaster takes her own after-hours calls herself. Please call the main number
(410) 480-2803 and a direct number will be given.

Please restrict after hour calls to URGENT medical matters only. Please restrict routine medication refills to regular office hours. It is not legal for Dr. Lancaster to call in schedule II medication or medications for ADHD over the phone. These medications must be submitted with a written prescription. Thus, refills for ADHD prescriptions must be written during regular office hours. Also, please call for referrals during regular office hours. Dr. Lancaster cannot assist with referrals after business hours.
