- Pre-natal Visits/New Babies
We understand that becoming a new parent may raise many questions and that choosing a physician for your baby is important to you. To help answer some of those questions, we offer "Meet and Greet" appointments with either of our physicians. These appointments are limited throughout the day so please call at least one month before your due date to schedule.
- Sick Visits
If you would like us to see more than one child, please schedule both of them when you make your appointment. Without an appointment, we may not be able to see a sick sibling right away, and you may be asked to wait while the provider sees a scheduled patient who may be waiting. We also ask that you let the receptionist know all of the concerns you would like to discuss with the physician so that the appropriate amount of time is scheduled. Concerns not mentioned when scheduling an appointment may need to be addressed at another visit.
- Well Child Visits/Sports Physical
To keep your children healthy, it is important to bring them in for regular checkups. We recommend that you call our office 4 weeks in advance so you may choose the date that best fits your needs.
Please allow 24-48 business hours for prescription refills to be completed. Most prescriptions are sent electronically to your pharmacy.
Our electronic medical record allows us to e-prescribe any prescriptions at your appointment within seconds. This will allow us to keep better track of all medications you are currently or have been taking, even if prescribed by another office. For prescription refills please try to give as much advance notice as possible; feel free to leave a message for the nurse, we ask that for most refills your child's physical is up-to-date.
Medications that are more closely regulated by the FDA have different requirements for prescribers. We are required by law to see your child regularly to monitor medication use and usefulness.
- Pay Your Bill
You can now quickly and easily pay your provider bill online using our convenient online bill pay tool.
- Insurance Message
We accept most insurance carriers. Please have your card with you at the time of the visit. If we file your claim, you are responsible for only the co-pay at the time of the visit. 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. It is your responsibility to know your insurance benefits and to inform the staff of multiple carriers.
