Appointments
Office visits are by appointment only. Please give at least 24 hours notice when canceling or rescheduling an appointment to avoid being charged for the visit. This will allow someone else to take advantage of that appointment time. Appointments made before or after office hours are assessed an after-hours fee in addition to the regular office visit fee.

In order to see our patients in a timely manner, we cannot see walk-ins or siblings without an appointment. As a courtesy to our other patients, please call if your child needs to be seen.

Please note that hours may vary according to holiday schedules and physician availability.

Relatives and Caretakers
We understand that a parent may not always be able to come to your child's appointment. If your child will be accompanied by a caretaker other than a parent, please fax or send along a written, signed letter or our release form (click here for forms) giving permission to our staff to examine and administer vaccines or medications to your child in your absence. We are also required by law to have written permission to disclose any pertinent medical advice or information to a relative or caretaker via the telephone. Please note that we will not be able to render care without written permission under federal HIPPA guidelines.

Insurance
As a courtesy, we will bill your insurance company. However, you are responsible for all delinquent balances past 60 days. Any balances that have not been paid by the insurance company or you after 120 days may be sent to a collection agency. If you have any questions regarding your bill, please call our billing company, HuTech Resources, at 630-285-1530.
