Sick Child Visits

Our experienced staff knows that illnesses such as colds and flus can be a very emotionally and physically draining experience for parents. We strive to offer fast service and same-day appointments to get your child back on the road to recovery as quickly as possible. The physician who regularly sees your child will determine how severe the illness is and will recommend the necessary steps to relieve symptoms and speed recovery. Our staff effectively communicates with you and other medical professionals to ensure the best choices for your child are made during an illness, regardless of severity. 

Well Child Visits

As children growth and development, a well-child visit and check-ups are important to monitor their growth and development and encourage healthy lifestyles. Keeping your child healthy with physical and emotional support is part of health maintenance. We will share information about proper dental care, immunizations and discipline. 

During the WELL CHILD VISIT, you and the provider will: 

 

• Review growth and development

• Test hearing and vision

• Perform an appropriate exam

• Give needed vaccinations

• Address any problems or concerns

• Discuss any questions you may have related to development

The well child visit is usually covered 100% by insurance

This is different from a “sick or follow up visit” which does have co-pay. An exclusive Well Child Visit is recommended, but when it’s combined with a “sick visit” a co-pay or deductible may apply.

Asthma

Asthma also called bronchial asthma. A condition in which a person’s airways become inflamed, narrow and swell, and produce extra mucus, which makes it difficult to breathe. Asthma can be minor or it can be interfere with daily activities. In some cases, it may lead to a life-threatening attack. Asthma may cause difficulty breathing, chest pain, cough, and wheezing. Asthma can usually be managed with rescue inhalers to treat symptoms and controller inhalers that prevent symptoms.

ADHD

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder also called ADHD is a chronic condition which manifest as attention difficulty, hyperactivity, and/or impulsiveness.

Because many changes have occurred this year in the healthcare industry, we ask that you contact your insurance company to confirm that your doctor is an in-network participating provider for your particular plan. This is also highly recommended if you are selecting a new insurance plan, as it is the parent’s responsibility to verify whether or not your doctor is an in-network provider for your insurance. Please contact our billing department if you have any questions about this or need assistance. We are contracted providers for Medicaid; therefore, we do accept patients with Medicaid (primary or secondary) coverage.

Because we care!
