OUR PATIENT SERVICES
We offer a number of services that you might not think about during a typical office visit. These include nurse consultations,
onsite hearing and visual screenings, and educational and nutritional services. If preparing for school, we can provide immunizations. We encourage
our families to visit us early for prenatal care. We have an onsite lab, and accept most major insurance. We are available 24 hours per day 7
days per week, and same day appointments are available.
To schedule well child care appointments:
We ask that you call the office to schedule an appointment. It is best to schedule your child’s future appointment as you check out after each
visit. Scheduling in advance ensures a convenient day and time and your provider of choice. If you are late for your appointment, you may be asked to reschedule.
If your child is sick:
Please call our office for an appointment as early as possible. Children with long-standing symptoms or medical problems that are not of an
urgent nature may be scheduled for another day. If you are late for your appointment, you may be asked to reschedule.
