- 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 and work you back into the schedule. Out of courtesy to our other patients, we may be forced to ask you to reschedule your appointment.
Unfortunately, we are unable to see your child if you walk in without an appointment. We will see siblings of patients who have an appointment as best as possible given the day's existing schedule.
- Forms & Policies

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.

- Pre-natal Visits/New Babies

- Sick Visits
We make every effort to schedule appointments for ill children on the day that you call us. 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.
- 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 week(s) in advance so you may choose the date that best fits your needs.
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 your visit. If we file your claim, you are responsible for only the co-pay at the time of 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.
