Please arrive 20 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment and remember to bring a current insurance ID card, photo ID, referrals from your child's primary doctor, and any studies such as EKGs, chest X rays, labs, or other clinical information.

Once you have an appointment, you may need to obtain authorization from your primary care physician or directly from the insurance company if it will be out-of-network (depending on your insurance plan). Our scheduling staff will know what authorization, if any, needs to be obtained. Please understand that it is the patient's responsibility to obtain authorizations.

Please come to your appointment prepared to pay your co-pay, your deductibles and other patient responsibility amounts. These payments are due at the time services are rendered. We accept cash, checks, American Express, Visa, Master Card and Discover.
