Appointments & Patient Information
Please call us to schedule an appointment and to schedule routine well-child checkups (six to eight weeks in advance for well-child checkups). We do not accept walk-ins but we do provide same-day visits for urgent medical concerns for our established patients Saturdays (hours vary).
Each of our pediatricians schedules appointments one to five half-days per week; one of these sessions may be in the evening. Please schedule your child’s check-ups and advance appointments with your primary care pediatrician. If your child has several medical issues or special health care needs, please ask to schedule longer appointments with the doctor.
When you call for an appointment, our staff will ask for your child’s insurance information. Please have your child’s insurance information handy.
You can also speak to a nurse 7 days a week from 7 am–9 pm (option 3).
We accept a variety of insurances and Medicaid.
Regular Pediatrician Unavailable?
If your child is ill or needs to be seen when your regular pediatrician is unavailable, you can ask to schedule an appointment with any pediatrician in the clinic that day, including faculty and resident physicians. Resident visits are supervised by a faculty pediatrician, who also may examine your child.
What to Expect at Your Appointment
Well-child checkups are something you should schedule for your child at least once a year. Well-child checks ensure your child is meeting important developmental milestones and that their health is on track. When you bring your child to an appointment, you can expect us to do these things:
- Give your child a physical exam and regular screenings.
- If needed, give your child vaccinations (immunizations and booster shots).
- Make sure they meet milestones in growth, behavior, and skills.
- Diagnose and treat your child's illnesses, infections, injuries, and other health problems.
- Conduct health screenings for preventative medicine.
- Give you information about your child's health, safety, nutrition, and fitness needs.
- Answer your questions about their growth and development.
- Refer you to specialists if we think your child needs specialized care.
