Mountain Area Pediatrics hours of operation may be modified in the event of inclement weather. In the event of inclement weather, we may either modify hours of operation or close for the duration of the treacherous weather event. Our primary concern is the safety of our patients, our patients’ representatives, and our MAPA team members. Our physicians and staff will make every effort to be available at the office; however, our efforts may be hindered due to weather/road conditions beyond our control.
