Beginning December 1

It is our policy to see sick children as soon as possible when a parent calls for an appointment. Well check-ups, rechecks, and immunizations must be scheduled in advance.  Well appointments not cancelled within 24 hours, may incur a cancellation fee.
 
Our practice follows the guidelines for immunizations and routine lab tests recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
 
In fairness to all patients, we ask that you be on time for scheduled appointments and outside of our walk in hours, you do not walk-in without an appointment.  Every effort will be made to accommodate patients who arrive more than 30 minutes late or walk-in without an appointment.  However, in order to maintain flow of patients with appointments, your child may have to wait in the waiting room longer than if an appointment had been made or kept.  A fee of $25.00 may be incurred for visits without an appointment.
 
Co-Payment is due at the time of the visit.  Self-pay patients are expected to pay in full at the time of service.
 
Forms required by our office are found on our website in PDF form or may be picked up at our office. 
 
Prescription refill requests are best handled at the time of your child’s office visit.  If a prescription is needed at another time, (with the exception of a schedule II prescription), the refill request should be called in directly to your pharmacy so they may send us the refill information electronically. Scheduled II prescriptions require a written request and a minimum notice of 5 business days. Forms for controlled prescription requests are available through our website.  Written prescriptions must be picked up and a fee of $10.00 will be due.
 
Referral request forms require 5 business days for completion.  With the exception of emergency room visits, referrals cannot be back dated.
 
One health form will be completed at patient’s annual well visit at no charge.  A processing fee of $ 15.00 will be charged for each additional school, sports and camp form completed.  The patient’s section should be completed before forms are dropped off.  Please allow 7 business days for completion.  Upon your request, and if available, forms may be expedited for an additional fee.
 
In order to cover the laboratory operating costs and maintain our high quality of care, a fee of $ 15.00 is charged for blood drawn by our technicians.  In addition to the drawing fee, if your insurance company requires samples be sent to an outside laboratory; a specimen handling fee of $ 20.00 will also be charged.  Should you wish not to pay these fees, you may go to the laboratory that contracts with your insurance company.
 
Test results and records for patients 18 years and older will not be released to anyone other than the patient without a signed release
 
For transfer of records, a signed release and a processing fee of $ 20.00 is required per record.  Please allow 7 business days for completion.
