Please bring a valid ID and your insurance card to every visit. Because we know your time is valuable, we ask that you extend us the same courtesy and arrive prior to your scheduled appointment time. If another child in your family needs to be seen as well, please call in advance to let us know. Your child must have a scheduled appointment to be seen.
We understand you might not be able to keep a scheduled appointment. Please call and cancel to allow the opportunity for another child to be seen. If you are late for your appointment (>15 minutes), we will do our best to accommodate you. However, on certain days it may be necessary to reschedule your appointment.
All patients 2+ years and older must wear a mask during their visit. They are located at the entrance of the building. We want to avoid the spread of diseases and many can be spread through air droplets and close contact:

Before establishing care with us, please check with your insurance company as to whether we accept your insurance. Please have all previous medical records including immunizations ready prior to your scheduled appointment. You can have them faxed or bring them with you.
If you feel your child needs medication, we recommend that you schedule an appointment so that the doctor can examine your child to determine the best treatment. Our physicians will not prescribe a medication/antibiotic over the phone without seeing the child. If you need a refill on a medication, please allow 48 hours to be filled. Refilling a prescription’s is at the doctor’s discretion and may require a visit if warranted.
