When your child becomes ill and needs to be seen, we ask that you call as early as possible for a same day or next day appointment. This will help us plan for all patients and lessen your wait time in the office. Because we do try to maintain our schedule, therefore, calling ahead will greatly help us serve you better. If for any reason you are unable to keep your scheduled appointment, please notify the office as soon as possible.
We value your time and want your visits to be productive and pleasant. Please assist us by arriving on time for your appointment. If you arrive late for your appointment, we will do our best to accommodate you in a timely manner.
If you have an emergency during regular office hours, please call our office and someone will help you immediately. If an emergency should arise after hours, call any of our regular office numbers and you will be forwarded to a Pediatric Nurse-on-Call. The nurse will return your call and if necessary, will contact a physician. For emergencies that do not permit such call back time, dial 911 to get immediate help.
We request payment for all medical services at the time of your child's office visit. We accept most major insurance including Aetna / U.S. Healthcare, Blue Cross / Blue Shield, Blue Choice, Cigna, PeachCare and Medicaid. We are also on many other health insurance plans. Please contact our office or check with your insurance carrier for our participation and your financial responsibility e.g co-pays, co-insurance and deductibles.

For a refill of chronic or controlled medications, we ask that you give the office ten days notice to allow your doctor an opportunity to review your child's health record. Always have prescription and pharmacy numbers on hand when requesting refills. Please let us know if the patient is allergic to any medications.
