Sick Child Visit

We make every effort to schedule appointments for ill children on the day that you call us. Please call our office ahead of time, early morning if possible, so that we can minimize the time that you will spend waiting. You may also call and speak to any of our Triage Nurses for phone advice. We try to accommodate same-day appointments for sick children whenever possible.

Walk-Ins

Our office policy is that we do not accept walk-ins in order to minimize the waiting time, and not inconvenience patients with previously scheduled appointments. Please call us first to schedule an appointment in the event that your child needs to be seen. We do our best to schedule appointments for all children who r need to be seen in the same day.

Emergencies

If an emergency should arise, please call 911. Emergencies are considered to be those conditions that are life-threatening: loss of consciousness, severe bleeding, seizure, etc. In the case of minor emergencies (lacerations, cuts), go to your nearest Emergency room or urgent care center. For other problems, instructions, please call our office.

Well Child Visits

Preventive care is a crucial part of your child’s total health care. Well-child visits allow time for immunization, routine screening tests, an evaluation of growth and development, a screening exam for the detection of developing physical problems, and a discussion of anticipated needs and adjustments. Child visits are also a good opportunity for you to discuss with us any issues that may be of concern to you or to ask any questions related to your child's health.

Insurance

Please have your card with you at the time of your visit. If we file your claim, you are responsible for the co-pay at the time of visit, along with any deductibles and co-insurance that are due. If we are not a provider for your insurance, if you are not insured or we do not file with your insurance company, you may be responsible for the entire charge at the time of service.
