APPOINTMENTS
Regular office hours begin at 9:00 a.m. Monday through Friday, except holidays. We will begin answering phones at 8:00 a.m. We ask that you make appointments in advance so that we can provide time for every patient. If you need to cancel your appointment, please make sure to call and let us know.
To try to prevent the spread of infections, please limit the number of persons brought along for the appointment. Please keep us informed of all the changes in your address, phone numbers, or emergency contacts.

PREVENTATIVE MEDICINE
Well-Baby check-ups should be scheduled at 2 weeks, 2 months, 4 months, 6months, 9 months, 12 months, 15 months, 18 months and 2 years. Thereafter, well-child preventative visits are recommended annually.
Beginning at 2 months of age, immunizations are scheduled to be received at each well-child appointment. Please bring your child's shot records to each well-child appointment so it can be updated.

PAYMENT POLICY
Private pay patients are expected to pay at the time of service. If for some reason you are unable to pay at the time of your visit, please speak with our bookkeeper so a suitable payment can be worked out for you. Statements will be mailed before the end of each month if you have a personal balance. Our computer automatically adds a minimum $2.00 interest charge on all balances over 60 days.

INSURANCE
When you have insurance, please provide us with your group and subscriber numbers. If you use Medicaid coupons they must be presented at time of service before you child can be treated. Co-pays are required to be paid at the time of service (as part of our contract with your health plan). You will receive a statement after we hear from your insurance company.

ALLERGY SHOTS
Regular office hours for allergy shots are 9:00 - 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 - 4:00 p.m. Be advised that summer hours for allergy shots are 9:00 - 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. Keep in mind that patients are required to stay in the clinic for 30 minutes following each injection.

LAB TESTS
Occasionally, the doctor will need a lab test to verify the best course of treatment for your child. In the event that you visit the clinic in order to drop off a specimen or to have a specimen collected, a minimum office call will be charged. You will be notified of any lab results which are not within normal limits.
Some specimens are sent to an outside lab. You will receive a bill from the lab for work done by them.
