Appointments

 Our office is an appointment only based clinic. However, we will try our best to accommodate your child on the same day’s schedule if deemed necessary by the degree of illness.

Outside the office hours, an answering service is available, and an on-call provider will answer your call usually within a half an hour to assist you by phone regarding your child’s illness. You will be advised about the appropriate course of action. Antibiotics, or other significant medications, will not be called in by the on-call doctor. For maintenance medications, it is advisable to call our office for refills during office hours. Please do not call the pharmacy if you do not have refills.

We require a 24-hour notice before canceling or changing appointment. Therefore, vacant openings in the schedule can be given to another patient. No shows may be charged a fee per our office policy.  Failure to show up for appointments may result in dismissal from our practice as per our office policy, and is at the discretion of our practitioners. Please see our attached Office Policy.
