What to expect
A pleasant, comfortable first visit builds trust and helps put the child at ease during future visits. We want your child to enjoy getting to know our providers and staff, so we work hard to establish this bond during every appointment to our office. During your initial appointment, we will explain everything in detail and answer any questions you may have.
We look forward to meeting you and your child and providing the quality, comprehensive medical care you expect and deserve.
The recent surge in measles outbreaks around the country has forced our office to reevaluate our response to non-immunized children. Measles is a preventable but highly contagious disease that can have serious, even life threatening complications. If a child with measles comes into our waiting room, that child is exposing our patients who are too young to be immunized. The measles virus lives a long time in the air and on the surfaces in a waiting room. We cannot risk our younger patients' health in this way. As of June 15, 2019, we will be informing parents of non-immunized children that following the CDC recommendations for MMR use will be a requirement to be a patient at our office. This means every child should receive the first vaccine at 15 months and the second by 4 years old. There will be a thirty day grace period from when parents are informed of this requirement. The family will need to find a different office for their non-immunized children's medical care within that thirty days.
To expedite your first appointment, please arrive a few minutes early to complete registration forms so that we have all the necessary information to treat your child. You may also download and print the forms from this website, fill them out ahead of time, and bring them with you to the first appointment.
