Our Physicians and Nurse Practitioners operate as a team dedicated to the care and the wellbeing of your child. We feel that a small group practice environment is beneficial to you for a number of reasons. Primarily, it allows us to provide 24 Hour pediatric coverage to our patients and their families. A group environment encourages your physician to consult with other physicians in the group when necessary. Our practice provides continuity of care to your child.
Our specialty revolves around preventative care for your child. Our goal is to help prevent many physical and/or psychological problems in your child by promoting periodic health exams. During these visits we try to answer specific questions about your child’s health, growth, immunizations, and development. We will also be available to give general advice and counseling regarding important childrearing issues such as your child’s sleep, eating and playful habits.
We feel that each visit should be an educational experience for you and your child. We are more than happy to provide you with appropriate educational literature.
We do prefer to see all patients by appointment. We do leave time for each physician to see sick children. However, if your child is sick and needs to be seen quickly, please call before coming to the office. This allows us to plan our day better and prevent long delays.
When you call for an appointment, every effort will be made to schedule your child with his/her primary physician. If your physician is not available that day or his/her schedule is full, we will schedule you with another physician or nurse practitioner in our group. Our medical records allow all providers to know your child’s medical history and provide quality care.
Inclement Weather Please call our office for information regarding closing or delayed openings. In the instance of a delayed opening, our answering service will provide you with the most up to date information.
After-Hours Phone Care All calls received after 5:00 pm will be forwarded to an answering service. Please reference the phone number that corresponds to your insurance carrier for patient assistance.
After-Hours Care If your child requires medical attention after office hours, please visit an emergency facility or an urgent care facility.
