General Appointment Questions
Is my child due for anything?
Immunizations: Please call and request a copy of your child’s immunization records. Records may be mailed, faxed or picked up at the clinic, and the request does not require a Release of Information form. All requests for immunization records are available the next business day after 3:00 pm.
Well Child Checks: Please note that Well Child appointments are scheduled at 2 weeks, 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 9 months, 12 months, 15 months, 18 months, 2 years, 3 years, 4 years, 5 years and 6 years.
After 6 years of age your child should receive Well Child Checks every one or two years* until they reach 18 years of age.
Feel free to call and inquire when your child’s last Well Child Check was if you don’t remember. Please keep in mind that your insurance carrier/company may require the visit to be a full 366 days after the last Well Child Check. We strongly encourage contacting your insurance carrier/company regarding benefits and coverage.
*Some insurance companies only cover preventative care every 24 months after 6 years of age- please check with your insurance before scheduling annual visits.
What do I need to bring with me to the appointment?
- Your current insurance card
- A current form of picture identification
- A list of current prescriptions your child is taking
- Any paperwork relevant to the appointment such as: ADHD packet, Sports Physical forms, etc.
Why do I need to check in 15 minutes before the appointment starts?
The check in process can take time, especially when insurances or other patient details have changed. Arriving 15 minutes before the appointment start time allows us to verify all patient information, update, and obtain any additional information we may still need. Additionally, it allows patient families time to fill out any forms that may be pertinent to your child’s appointment that day.
Please be advised, if you arrive at your scheduled appointment time or after the scheduled time, you may be asked to reschedule your appointment to a different day or time.
