New patients will not be seen without a parent or legal guardian present (with legal papers). In later visits, written permission is required if your child is accompanied by a non-legal guardian due to HIPAA regulations.
If you feel that your child needs to be seen, call us and we will arrange an appointment. We try to honor your requests for specific time slots and providers, but logistically speaking, this is not always possible, as we try to have ill children seen as soon as possible. If you need advice about an illness, or are unsure as to whether or not your child needs to be seen, call to speak to one of our nurses.
We follow the recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatrics for health supervision visits and immunizations. These well visits/physicals should be scheduled well in advance. We suggest that you schedule your child's next visit before you leave the office.
