Before Your First Visit

Please complete the New Patient forms (below) and bring them to your first office visit for your newborn or child.

  • Please bring your current insurance card or cards and your child's immunization record for us to make copy for your child’s record.

Please verify with your insurance company the type of office visit and immunization coverage that your policy provides.

  • Your policy may have a deductible, co-pay or only cover immunizations to a certain age. It is very important to determine this information prior to your visit.

Please try to arrive 10-15 minutes before your scheduled appointment so that we may validate your information in our systems. Since we have to familiarize ourselves with your child's medical history, initial visits are more time consuming. Please allow yourself ample time for this visit.

Cancellation Policy

The office requests 24 hour notification for any appointment cancellation.
