Useful Information

  • Please arrive 15 minutes prior to appointment to complete necessary paperwork. Also have current insurance information, list of medications or changes in medication, previous surgeries or hospitalizations, and previous immunizations.
  • Please schedule your next follow-up appointment with the receptionist before leaving the office.
  • Children brought in by someone other than a parent or guardian, must have a written note indicating that the accompanying person is authorized to seek treatment on behalf of you will be required before the appointment can be conducted. In addition, our office may call you to verify that the note is authentic.
  • Insurance coverage varies and you will be responsible for those charges that are not covered by your policy as well as the deductible and co-pays. Less costly arrangements can be made for immunizations if we know in advance.
  • We ask you provide 24 hour notice if you need to cancel an appointment.
  • Release of medical information. In general, upon receipt of an approved medical records release form signed by the parent/guardian we will forward the appropriate medical information. Medical release forms are available at our office upon request.
