CANCELLATIONS

If you cancel or change without 24 hours notice, you may be charged a missed-appointment fee. Repeated failure to keep appointments may result in a request for you to find another physician to care for your child. We will make every effort to see your child in a timely manner. Please try to be prompt for appointments as it affects all the patients for the rest of the day.

IMMUNIZATIONS

Your child should be immunized and have booster injections on time to assure optimum health. We will try to insure this, but advise you check as well. Some immunizations may not be covered by your insurance. If not, you will be expected to pay.

FEVERS

If your child has a fever, please take his or her temperature before calling the office. Rectal temperatures are preferred in small children. This is important information that will help us make the best decisions in caring for your child.

PRESCRIPTIONS

Our policy is to issue new prescriptions only after the patient has been seen by a physician. If refills are needed, please call only on weekdays after 10:00 a.m. and before 5:00 p.m. Have your pharmacy telephone number available. If you must call us after hours, please have verified that the pharmacy is open.
