- 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.
- 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 at least 2 weeks 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 contact our billing office at 216-991-4171 with any specific questions in this regard.
Our office is capable of submitting most insurance claims directly to your insurance carrier, provided you have supplied us with the appropriate information and authorization. All HMO and PPO claims will be submitted by our billing office. In order for us to help you get the maximum reimbursement from your insurance carrier, we must be aware of any changes in your coverage or personal information. For this reason, you may frequently be asked to supply current insurance cards and to update your personal information.
Your specific insurance contract defines to what extent your insurer can reimburse you or your physician for the expense of medical care, and what co-payments (if any) are required.
