Each year at the time of your child’s physical examination, a generic health form is generated by our computer and filled in by your physician.
This form encompasses all the necessary medical clearance data required by all institutions.
It is to be used in place of all school, camp and sports participation given to you.
We ask that you make copies of the original in the event you need to use it more than once. Replacement of this form will be provided at a nominal fee. We will not fill in the individual forms.
Should you have an appointment with one child and wish to have a sibling checked, we ask that you call and notify the office so that time will be made available to accomplish this.
If you walk-in with another child, we will not be able to see this child. Our staff will give you the next available time slot which may be right away or after a couple of hours depending on the season.
These are the kind of issues that cause our doctors to fall behind schedule. (there is never just a quick peek in the ears) It is not fair to the patient who has an appointment and is in the office on time.
We ask that you give the office at least 24 hours notice if you wish to cancel or reschedule an appointment. There may be a service charge for missed appointments.
Exams for newborn infants are performed at 2 week of age, then at 6 weeks of age.
Visits will then occur at a frequency of every one-month until 8 months when it slows down to every two months until 12 months of age.
After that visits will be every three months until 2 years of age and then it is yearly. Some weight checks may also be done within the first six months.
This recommended schedule is designed by the AAP to accommodate the numerous vaccines that need to be administered and to examine the development of the baby.
A deviation from this schedule may occur depending on the well care limitation of your insurance company. Please contact them and find out how many well baby check-ups are allowed.

We encourage patients to schedule regular check ups in advance. There are various times during the year where there is a rush of requests for school physicals and sports clearance examinations. Please make sure that you do not find yourself in a position, which the child cannot return to school or sports because of medical clearance. We try our best to accommodate all request, but sometimes it may be impossible. Sick Call Visits or Urgent Care Visits are scheduled during the morning. All sick children will be seen that day. In order to be able to provide same day Urgent Care visits, we do ask that Chronic or non-urgent conditions such as (i.e. acne, behavior issues, constipation etc.) be scheduled in advance. Our staff will always do their best to try to accommodate you in the safest and hopefully most convenient way that they possibly can.
At the end of your child’s examination, the doctor will give you an encounter form.
He or she will note the type of examination, procedures, tests or medications for which you will be charged. Take the form to the “check-out” window at the front desk. Our office is a “fee-for-service” practice and, as such, payment in full is required at the conclusion of your visit.
We expect payments for services from the parent accompanying the child. If an absent parent has financial responsibility, we must ask for payment from you and allow you to make arrangements with the responsible party.
We currently have contracts with several insurance companies in the form of HMOs, PPOs, etc. for which we will accept your co-payment and file for your services.
You must present your card at each visit. Occasionally a double co-payment is required if laboratory services are provided.
Please check with your carrier regarding any benefit or co-payment questions.
We hope this information will help make your relationship with our office a pleasant one. Please tell us if you are experiencing a problem. We look forward to a warm and rewarding relationship with you and your family.
