We have an after-hours nurse triage line through CHKD. These are pediatric trained nurses that will offer guidance to our patients. There is always a doctor on call that can assist in giving further advice if needed. If it is deemed the child will need to be seen immediately, we will give advice upon where to send the child (urgent care, ER, hospital, etc).

Every visit requires your child’s insurance card. If you are transferring to our office, please remember to call your insurance company and change the PCP to one of our providers. This needs to be done before your child can be seen or the visit will not be covered and you could be responsible for the services rendered. If your child is a new patient, please bring a copy of immunizations, any old records, and any forms you may have completed from our website that you have downloaded.
Yes, to provide efficient flow in our well child center, we may need to reschedule you if you are more than 15 minutes late. Please call to reschedule appointments if you need to cancel. We generally ask for a 24-hour notice, otherwise there may be a fee.
We are a small, one location practice, so we hope that patients will get to meet all of our physicians and nurse practitioners! This will be helpful if your child is sick or you have to speak to a doctor at night so you will be comfortable with whom you are speaking. When your child is sick we will try to see them as soon as possible and this may require your child to see whichever provider is currently available. For planned, well child checks, you can always request a specific physician.
You need to check with your insurance company either by looking at the website, calling the 1-800 number on back of the card, or looking directly at the card under referrals. For specialists, we refer patients both to MCV specialists and CHKD specialists.
