Sports and Camps

Some camps and sport programs require physicals for your child to participate. We recommend you schedule your appointments for physicals way ahead of time to ensure completion of forms for your child’s participation on time.

We also request that you pre-fill as much information as possible before coming in.

 

PLEASE DO NOT FORGET TO BRING YOUR FORMS WITH YOU AS WE DO NOT HAVE THEM IN OUR OFFICE.

FAQ

What should I bring to my first appointment?

Please make sure that you arrive to the physician’s clinic at least 15 minutes before your scheduled
appointment time so that you can provide us the necessary paperwork and insurance information to put
you into our system. To save time, you can also print the New Patient Form located on our forms page
and bring it willed out to your appointment.

 

Do I need a referral to make an appointment?

 

No, you do not need a referral to make an appointment with either a primary physician or a physician
assistant. We are currently accepting new patients. However, for your visit to be covered through your
insurance please contact your insurance provider to understand the terms of your policy.

How is the doctor-patient relationship different here, compared to other hospitals or clinics?


We believe that our staff members are leaders in providing patient-focused care. We take the time to
listen to patients’ concerns and address any questions they may have. We are a physician’s clinic that
values all of our patients and appreciate the long-lasting relationships we create with them.

 

What is your cancellation policy?

We require a 24 hour notice to cancel all appointments. Please be sure to contact us if you will not be
able to make your scheduled appointment with your medical doctor.

How can I get a hold of my medical doctor?

We take pride in our doctor-patient relationships and schedule plenty of time for you to get all of your
questions answered. If you need to get in touch with your medical doctor or physician assistant in
between appointments, please contact our main office to leave a message or schedule an appointment.

How do you notify your patients of lab or test results?

On the Patient Information Form that you fill out on your first visit, you will give us your contact
information. Also, the day of your visit when you sign in, you will list your telephone number. We are
usually able to notify patients within 24 hours of receiving results.

Will I be able to get copies of my test results?


Yes, upon request we are able to provide you copies with your test results.

Do you allow urgent or same day appointments?


Yes, we do have same day appointments. (If you have to make an appointment for a check-up or
physical we appreciate if you make appointment ahead of time).

We are open Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 6:00pm and Saturday from 8:00am to 12 Noon.

Helpful Information

Fever and Dosing Guidelines

A temperature of 100.4 F or higher is considered a fever. Fever in an infant 28 days old or younger is considered a medical emergency and you should take your child to the emergency room immediately. If your child is older than 28 days, you may attempt to treat the fever at home. Below are the dosing guidelines for both ibuprofen (Motrin) and acetaminophen (Tylenol). You may alternate these medications (if they are old enough to take ibuprofen) to help bring their fever down. You should also keep your child cool/not covered up when they have a fever. Keeping them covered in heavy clothes/blankets will only worsen the fever. It is always best to call and make your child an appointment to be seen for fever.
