SICK VISITS

If your child is ill or injured, please call before coming into the office. Patients who arrive without a scheduled appointment may be asked to wait or return for the next available appointment at the discretion of our medical staff.  

We do not set aside time for “walk-in” visits; therefore, in order to ensure adequate time and attention for your child, it is best to have a scheduled appointment.

If you have more than one child who needs medical attention at a visit, please tell the person scheduling your appointment.  

Even seemingly minor problems deserve the full attention of a scheduled appointment.  

“Add on” visits may also be asked to wait or return for the next available appointment.

Regularly scheduled “check ups” are important in the medical care of your children. In addition to monitoring growth and development and providing vaccinations, these visits are intended to address your concerns.

Well Checks are typically scheduled as a 30 minute appointment 

and are scheduled at least six to eight weeks in advance.

WELL EXAMS

 There are developmental questionnaires that we request you complete for your  child between the ages of 4 months and 5 years. 

If your children are in this age range, we politely request you arrive early for your appointment to complete the questionnaire

in the office.

While the Wellness Exam is an opportunity to address any concerns you may have, this does NOT include acute illness, injury or other concerns.

If there is an acute illness, injury or other concern with your child that we have not previously addressed that may have warranted a separate office visit, and the care extends beyond the realm of a Routine Wellness Exam, an office visit may be billed in addition to the Wellness Exam.

This is done in accordance with the

AMA's Current Procedural Terminology Coding Guidelines. 

The AAP recommends several  Wellness Exams in the first

2 - 3 years of life. These should be covered by your insurance plan. However, it is in your best interest to contact your insurance company to inquire whether or not ALL of the recommended exams will be covered.  Some plans do have limitations as to the number of Wellness Exams allowed each year. If the exam is not covered by your plan, you may be responsible for any/all charges incurred.

The American Academy

of Pediatrics (AAP)

supports instrument-based vision screening as an alternative to visual acuity testing with eye charts (snellen chart & optotypes).

 

These techniques have better success after 12 months of age and can be repeated at each annual preventative medicine encounter through 5 years of age or until visual acuity can be assessed reliably.

PEDIATRIC SPIROMETRY / EKG

 Welch Allyn CP 150 Resting Electrocardiograph with Spirometry
An EKG measures the heart's electrical activity. This can help doctors tell how the heart is working and identify any problems.
The EKG can help show the rate and regularity of heartbeats, the size and position of the heart's chambers and whether there is any damage.

Spirometry tells healthcare professionals how well the lungs are working.

It's used to help diagnose and monitor diseases that affect the lungs and make breathing difficult, such as asthma and cystic fibrosis.

It also can be used to:

  • Find the cause of shortness  of breath, coughing or wheezing.

  • Monitor treatment of respiratory problems.

  • Evaluate lung function.
