Our office is open from 8:00 A.M. until 8:00 P.M. Monday through Thursday, 8:00 A.M. until 5:15 P.M. on Friday, 8:00 A.M. until noon on Saturday and 1:00 P.M. to 4:30 P.M Sundays. We are open in the evenings and on Saturday and Sunday with reduced staff so we can care for sick children. Routine physicals and chronic illnesses are seen during the daytime hours. Patients are seen by appointment. When making your appointment the receptionist will need a brief statement of the child's symptoms. If more than one child is to be seen, it is necessary to have an appointment for each, even if children are in the same family. Arriving at the office without an appointment will result in a wait to be seen as we must care for those patients who have made appointments first. We do of course see medical emergiencies when they occur.
When your child is ill, we make every effort to see him/her on the same day as you call. On busy days, it may be necessary to see patients late in the afternoon or evening.
We strive to see patients at their appointed time. We do get behind schedule at times because of emergencies or because a patient needs more time than we anticpated. Please bear with us - you may have an emergency or need extra time some day also. If you have waited twenty minutes, please check with the receptionist to be sure why you have not been called back to see the doctor.
It is best to make routine sports and day care physical appointments several weeks in advance. If a physician requests that you return for a re-check, you should make the appointment at the reception desk before leaving the office. If you cannot keep the appointment, please call to cancel as soon as possible so we may offer the time to another patient. Patients who make appointments which are not kept or canceled may not continue to receive care in our office.
