Be prepared to give the child's name, age and reason for the visit when calling for an appointment. If you must cancel your appointment, please give us as much advance warning as possible.
If another physician has ever seen your child, it is important to have medical records from those encounters. The immunization records are particularly important to have prior to the first exam.
In the event of an emergency, every effort will be made to find an open appointment time as quickly as possible.
It is important to keep the office staff notified of changes of address, home and office telephone numbers, and health insurance coverage.
While we recommend a continuing relationship with one physician, we recognize that situations arise where this is not possible. For those patients seeing one of our doctors, yet not a regular patient of Growing Up Pediatrics, P.C., there will be a nominal administrative fee charged in addition to the c-opay or deductible.
If you need to have a blue form, daycare form, camp or sports form completed, please give it to the receptionist or nurse as soon as you arrive.
Please Note: Strong perfumes and colognes adversely affect many patients with serious respiratory diseases. Your consideration in not wearing fragrances in our offices is much appreciated.
