Late Arrivals and No-show/Missed Appointments

We understand unplanned situations arise and may make you late for an appointment. If you are more than 15 minutes late for your appointment, we may need to reschedule the visit. If your child is extremely ill, a physician will make a quick assessment to make sure it is medically safe to reschedule for a later time.

One parent or legal guardian must accompany every child (even adolescents) for the first visit in order for the physician to obtain an accurate medical history and to obtain signatures of consent for treatment. Parents must also sign and complete the new patient registration form as well as a Release of Medical Records to have medical records transferred from your child’s previous doctor. On subsequent visits, another relative can accompany the child only if a parent or legal guardian writes and signs a note giving permission for relatives to consent to treatments and vaccines on the parent’s behalf. This relative must be specifically identified in the letter. We have a generic form for parents to complete if needed.
