Preparing for an Appointment
We are so glad you are coming to see us, and we are looking forward to your visit with us. Here are some helpful hints to make your experience even better.
WHAT TO BRING
For EVERY appointment, caregivers are asked to please have photo identification, such as a driver’s license, and a current copy of your child’s insurance card. If someone other than a parent or guardian is accompanying your child, please be sure they have written permission with a parent’s or guardian’s signature allowing us to care for your child.
PAPERWORK TO HAVE
If it is your first visit with us, please arrive 30 minutes before your scheduled appointment time to complete the New Patient Forms, OR bring the completed paperwork with you. Please be sure to remember your child’s immunization record. A copy of medical records, if available, from your child’s previous physician or healthcare facility is extremely helpful. You can even have these records sent to us before your appointment in order for us to review them in advance.
INFORMATION TO KNOW
Knowing your child’s current medications is tremendously helpful, and preparing your questions or concerns in advance is beneficial as well.
PREPARING YOUR CHILD
Most children feel less nervous when they are informed about what will happen at their appointment. You know your child best, but we usually recommend talking with them about what to expect at their upcoming visit. We want our patients to be as comfortable as possible!
