The purpose of these policies is to ensure that there are enough appointment slots available to take care of the sick children & to safeguard the schedule so that you and your children are in and out of the clinic in a reasonable amount of time.
You can help us accomplish this by following these requests:
- Please be here 10 minutes early so that you can get through the Check-in process in time for your appointment.
- In order to make sure that we have enough sick-visit slots each day, we have a limited number of well-visit (physical exam) appointments available and those are booked at least 48 hours in advance. So I hope that you will understand that we cannot fit in an extra well-visit exam at the last minute.
- Late arrivals cause an unpleasant ripple effect in the schedule. So please understand that if you are late for your appointment you will likely have to be rescheduled for a later time.
- Please schedule sick-visit appointments for each child that you want seen by the provider. “Squeezing in” an extra exam can be time consuming and can cause a schedule backlog.
We are endeavoring to make your visits here as pleasant an experience as possible. Thank you for your cooperation.
