If you have coverage through Medicaid, you must contact the Medicaid office to receive and activate child's member identification number. Make your Primary care Physician selection at the same time to avoid any delays in providing the medical care to your newborn.

If your child does not have any medical coverage, you will be required to pay for the services.

Our staff members are available to provide you with additional information.

Policies

Our patients, newborns through adolescents, are seen by appointment for illness, injury, and well child examinations. You can request same day or weekend appointment. We also offer evening hours Monday through Thursday by request only.

If you must cancel an appointment, please notify us 24 hours in advance. There is no charge for the first missed appointment, however, if there are repeated missed appointments, without prior cancellation, subsequent office visits will not be scheduled.

We respect the time spent in the waiting room and we make every effort to minimize any delay. There are situations some patients are seen on a priority basis based on emergency conditions. We hope you understand any delay in your appointment under such circumstances.
