*Please save routine questions (mild illness, appointments, prescription refills) for the morning.*

We encourage you to refer to our website first, when practical, before calling the doctor.  

Appointments

To help provide timely service to our patients, we prefer to schedule all visits. If you are later than 10 minutes for your appointment, we will try to work you back into the schedule, or perhaps offer an appointment to you with another provider. Out of courtesy to our other patients, we may be forced to ask you to reschedule your appointment.

Sick Child Visits

We make every effort to schedule appointments for ill children on the same day that you call us. Please make sure you have an appointment so that we can minimize your wait time. If you have a medical emergency during office hours, we will do our best to see your child immediately or refer you to the appropriate facility.

Walk-Ins

All visits require an appointment except in the case of an emergency. If you walk in, and our schedule allows, your child may be seen but additional fees may be applicable.

Emergencies
