Policies


SCHEDULING

  • We have 5 M.D.'s and 10 physician extenders. We like to keep our patients with one individual provider during well visits and any preventive visit to establish a great provider/patient relationship.
  • On same day sick visits, our office staff makes every effort to put you with the provider that you normally see.
  • At any time a parent can request to have a note put in your child's chart to only see or not see any specific provider.


NO SHOWS

  •  We understand the needs of busy families and offer office hours that help you with your child's healthcare needs. Our ability to provide quality healthcare becomes very challenging when patients are late for appointments or no show for appointments. We ask our patients to please call us if you are running late for an appointment so we can advise you of what our schedule looks like or call if you are unable to make the appointment at least 24 hours prior to appointment.


COPAYS AND INSURANCE CARDS

  • Copays are due at the time of service and will be collected at the front window prior to your appointment. Insurance cards will also be requested and copied at every visit. Please make sure to bring your copay and insurance card with you. We accept cash, check,visa, mastercard, discover and american express.
