- Scheduling Appointments
To help provide timely service to our patients, we prefer to schedule all visits. If you are later than 15 minutes for your appointment, we will try to work you back into the schedule, or perhaps offer an appointment to you with another provider. Out of courtesy to our other patients, we may be forced to ask you to reschedule your appointment.
All visits require an appointment except in the case of an emergency. Unfortunately, we are unable to see your child if you walk in without an appointment. We will ask you to return later in the day when the schedule allows.
- Forms & Policies
Please allow 3-5 business days for medical forms (for school, camp or sports) to be completed. Forms must be dropped off at the front desk during normal business hours or faxed anytime. Your portion of the form should be filled out completely, including your child’s name and date of birth. If the form requires a doctor’s signature, the child must have had a physical within the last year or it cannot be signed. Please remember to schedule your child’s physical yearly.

- After Hours/Emergency Calls
The doctors take emergency calls from their home after hours. Call the main office number, and your call will be directed to the UH Rainbow Nurse Advice line after hours. Please save routine questions (mild illness, appointments, prescription refills) for the morning. We encourage you to refer to our website first, when practical, before calling the office. There is a $10.00 fee when medical advice is given that does not require being seen the next day.
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, mild fractures, sprains), please call our office first for instructions.
- Pre-natal Visits/New Babies
We welcome all families who would like to meet their pediatrician prior to seeing the doctor for a visit, the consultation is free of charge, but does require an appointment.
- Sick Visits
We make every effort to schedule appointments for ill children on the day that you call us. Please call our office ahead of time so that we can minimize the time that you will spend waiting. If you have a medical emergency during office hours, we will do our best to see your child immediately or refer you to the appropriate facility.
If you would like us to see more than one child, please schedule this when you call to 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.
- 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 2 weeks in advance so you may choose the date that best fits your needs. The list below is our recommended schedule for Well Child Visits.
Newborn, 1 month, 2 month, 4 month, 6 month, 9 month, 12 month, 15 month, 18 month, 2 years old and then on a yearly basis.
When calling in prescription refills, please allow 48 hours for prescriptions to be approved and ready for pick up, or to be sent to the 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.
