To help make our first visit as efficient and informative as it can be, please arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment and bring with you information about your family medical history, your child’s medical history, your insurance information and a valid picture identification. If someone other than the child’s parent or guardian is bringing them to their appointment, please send a letter giving your permission for us to see the child.

For non-contracted insurance we will expect payment in full at the time of service and we will provide a detailed statement for you to submit to your insurance company.
Missed and Late Appointments
Missed appointments represent a cost to us, and to other patients who could have been seen in the time set aside for your child. We request that you notify us of any cancellations 24 hours prior to an appointment. If you know you are going to miss your child’s appointment, we encourage you to please call us as soon as possible, so we can give that time to another sick child.
If you arrive late for your appointment, you may have to wait until patients who were on time for their appointments are seen first. If you arrive more than 30 minutes late, we may ask you to reschedule your appointment for another day, depending on why your child needs to be seen. We appreciate your cooperation.

If you currently do not have insurance or insurance coverage cannot be verified, payment will be requested at the time of service.
We require our office forms be updated annually to ensure that we have the correct information for you. Incomplete or incorrect information can result in non-payment from your insurance.
It is our policy to collect certain information for billing purposes. Some of this information is personal and will be kept confidential.
If your insurance plan has an office visit co-pay you need to be prepared to pay at each visit.

Your insurance will also mail you a notice of your balance. We will mail you a receipt. This allows us to obtain quick payment so that we may concentrate on providing you with quality medical care and not be occupied with sending outstanding balances to collection agencies.
