Illness is always an unpleasant experience. Even worse is the illness of a child. In addition to the child’s discomfort, it is very upsetting and stressful for parents. We’re here to help! If your child is ill, do not hesitate to call with questions or concerns. If your child needs to be seen, we will work with you to make the most expeditious arrangements possible.
Sick visits require a phone call from you on the day of the visit. As a general rule, we do not book these appointments prior to the day of the visit. This allows us to appropriately schedule throughout the course of the day.
Most days, there are appointments available from 8 to 9 A.M. for acutely ill children. The receptionists start answering the phone to schedule these slots at 7:30 A.M.
We ask that you please make every effort to arrive on time for your appointments. If, for whatever reason, you are unable to keep your appointment, please call and let us know so we can plan accordingly. If you are going to be late, please call so appropriate arrangements can be made, be it adjustment of the schedule, or rescheduling of the appointment.
Beginning February 1st, 2013 no-shows will be charged a $50 fee.
While we strive to see all patients in a timely manner, unforeseen circumstances, including emergencies sometimes occur. On these rare occasions, we appreciate your understanding.
