We make every effort to honor all time commitments and request that you extend the same courtesy to us. If appointments can’t be kept, please call to reschedule or cancel (please see Cancellations and Rescheduling below). Similarly, if you are running late, please let us know with a quick phone call. We do not have a specific walk-in time for sick children. Please always call our office first to be certain the doctor is available and in the office at that time. The receptionist will be available at 8:30 am and will work with you in scheduling the best time for your child to be seen that day. On occasion, emergencies do interrupt office hours, and whenever possible, you will be informed if there are any delays.
If you decide an additional child needs to be seen when you only have one appointment scheduled, please call and let the receptionist know as soon as possible. This will help us adjust our schedule to accommodate you. Should you have a need to bring your child directly to the office during regular hours without a pre-scheduled appointment, please be advised that an additional walk-in fee will be added to your charges.
If you wish to see a particular physician or nurse practitioner for your visit, please tell the receptionist at the time you schedule the appointment, otherwise you will see whoever is working on the day you have selected. This should not be a problem as our medical ideas are similar and we all strive to give your child the best care.
Please note that our Saturday appointments are generally reserved for children who are found to be ill that day. Only a limited number of physical examination times are available on Saturdays. If you’d like to schedule a physical examination on a Saturday, please keep in mind that the limited number of available times fill up quickly, so you may need to consider dates far into the future.
Cancellations and Rescheduling
As a courtesy to others and our practice, please attempt to cancel or reschedule appointments as soon as you learn it is necessary to do so. We reserve the right to charge an additional fee for appointments that are cancelled or rescheduled less that 24 hours before the original date and time. A charge of $35 will be added to your account for any missed PE/Health Maintenance exam.
