Due to frequent changes in health insurance coverage
, please be prepared to show us your insurance card upon arrival for each visit.
We ask that all new patients arrive at least fifteen minutes in advance to fill out all new patient paperwork. Please bring all relevant paperwork from your child's previous pediatrician, including immunization records and laboratory test results.
Because well visits take more time in our schedule than sick visits, they must be scheduled separately. We also ask that no more than two siblings be scheduled consecutively for well check-ups, as our appointment schedule will not allow for more.
We encourage a parent or legal guardian to be present at the time of each child's visit. Patients who arrive alone or with a caretaker will be required to have prior written parental permission to be seen by one of our provider's with the exception of emergency visits.
If you are unable to keep your appointment, please notify our office at least 24 hours in advance so that another patient may be given this time.
Because we are trying to ensure your waiting time is kept to a minimum, it may be difficult to see late patients. When a patient arrives late for an appointment it makes subsequent patients wait longer.
If you are more than 20 minutes late for your child's appointment, you may be offered the next available appointment or possibly be asked to reschedule non-urgent visits.
When you call our office, your call will be routed through our voice mail system. If it is necessary for you to leave a voice mail message, please let us know if your last name is different from your child's. This will help us find your child's records faster.
