Appointments and Scheduling
There’s only so much time in the day. When people don’t show up for an appointment, another child loses the opportunity for medical attention that day. We want to encourage people to use their appointments. We want to discourage people from unfairly denying care to to other children.
Yes. And we ask that you use the appropriate waiting room.
It’s a requirement of your insurance company, and we’re trying to save you time and money. It seems like a silly bureaucratic exercise, but you’d be surprised how often people forget to tell us about changes. If that happens to you, and your valid insurance claim is denied, you can rack up extra charges. You’ll have to spend time getting it corrected with the insurance company. Your claim will be delayed. We prevent all that by verifying your information each visit.
If you are more than 20 minutes late we may ask you to reschedule. If you are less than 20 minutes late you may have to wait until the people who were on time have been seen.
You will be charged a no show fee.
Short answer: we really need you to keep these appointments. Long Answer: These appointments take a lot of time. One ADD appointment can knock as many as four sick visits off our schedule. That means up to four sick children have medical attention delayed at least one day. That’s not a problem. We want your child to have the care they deserve, too. That’s why we really need you to show up on time for your ADD appointment.
Please provide us with:
- Your name
- Your child’s name and date of birth
- Medication name
- Medication dosage
- Any problems your child has with the medication
- Pharmacy Name
