Renaissance Family Practice provides exceptional availability every day of the week through our extended office hours and excellent on call services. Evening hours are available through the week at each location. Friday evening from 5p-9p and Saturday and Sunday from 9a-5p our After Hours Clinic is open in Aspinwall for urgent issues. After-hours phone calls are all returned in a timely fashion by our physicians themselves, whenever the office may be closed, no matter the day, hour, or even holidays.

Urgent Visits and Multiple offices:

While we always encourage patients to have one primary care provider for continuity who knows them well, we understand that each provider is not available all the time when you may be sick or injured. For these times, if you may need to schedule with one of our other doctors at the same location, or depending on where you are, you may even want to be seen at a different location. We will do our best to help. For example, you do not have to be a Glenshaw patient to use their Walk-in hour or a Glenshaw patient may be seen on a Thursday night at Penn Hills if availability allows.


The Glenshaw Office has a walk-in hour Monday through Friday from 7:45a-9:45a for certain medical conditions limited to colds and coughs, rashes, minor injuries, pink eye, or urine infections. Due to the length of appointments for things such as abdominal pain, migraines, chest pain, and routine follow ups, these should be scheduled as regular appointments and are not appropriate appointments for the walk-in hour. We always try to accommodate our patients in every way possible, although must respect the patients who scheduled their appointments in advance.

Same Day Scheduling:

Ever call your doctor’s office and be told that you can’t be seen for 2-3 weeks? Not here. Our offices save appointments each day for urgent visits. To ensure you are seen the same day when you need to be, call at 8am so that we can adjust our schedule for you. While this may not always be with the doctor you usually see, we will receive excellent care.

Evening Hours:

Every week night, our doctors see patients late into the evening to accommodate your needs. Below are offices open after 6pm each night of the week.
Monday: Aspinwall, Glenshaw, Gibsonia, Morningside, Penn Hills, RIDC
Tuesday: Aspinwall, Glenshaw, Gibsonia, Penn Hills, RIDC
Wednesday: Glenshaw, Penn Hills, RIDC
Thursday: Gibsonia, Penn Hills

After Hours:

Unable to get to the office during the work week? See our After Hours (hyperlink that) webpage which is located at the Aspinwall office. We see all walk-ins there Fridays from 5p-9p and Saturday and Sunday from 9a-5p. You will be charged for this as a regular office visit not as an emergency room visit or an urgent care, and parking is free.
