Visiting a new doctor can be stressful at any age. So we do everything we can to make the whole process as easy and pleasant as possible. We suggest bringing your child in for a get-acquainted-visit even before there’s any need for medical attention. It will give us a chance to know each other and learn about your child's medical and developmental history.
Your child's health is important to us, and we want to make sure we address all of your concerns. Based on what you tell us when you call for an appointment, we estimate the length of your visit to minimize your wait and assure you the maximum level of care. [In some cases it may be necessary to schedule an additional appointment to address all of your concerns.] And we make every effort to accommodate the different needs and schedules of the families we care for by offering same day visits, weekday evening physicals, Saturday morning walk-in visits, and seasonal morning and afternoon walk-in hours. We are also on-call for our patients after-hours, 365 days a year.
Come in about 15 minutes before your appointment time to get the paperwork out of the way before you see the doctor. If your appointment is scheduled far enough in advance, you may be mailed paperwork to complete in anticipation of your child's visit. Complete the paperwork in advance and make sure you bring it with you to expedite your child's visit.
Always bring your insurance card with you to expedite billing the insurance company as soon as possible.
