Sick Child Visits

 To help provide timely service to our patients, we prefer to schedule all visits. If you are later than twenty minutes for your appointment, we will try to work you back into the schedule, or perhaps offer an appointment to you with another provider. Out of courtesy to our other patients, we may be forced to ask you to reschedule your appointment.The doctors take emergency calls from their homes after hours. Call the main office number, and our answering service will page a doctor to call you back. Please save routine questions (mild illness, appointments, prescription refills) for the morning. We encourage you to refer to our website first, when practical, before calling the office.To keep your children healthy, it is important to bring them in for regular checkups. We recommend that you call our office several weeks in advance so you may choose the date that best fits your needs.We make every effort to schedule appointments for ill children on the day that you call us. Sometimes, it is not possible to see your child on the same day you call and in these cases we will work with you to figure out the best approach to take care of your child, whether it be an appointment withing 24 hours in our office or referring you to the best appropriate facility. Out of courtesy to all of our patients, we do require an appointment for your child to be seen.
