Can my child be seen on the same day that I call?
We pride ourselves on being accessible to our patients, and thus make every effort to accommodate all of our sick children. We do not expect you to make appointments that far in advance for sick visits.
If your child is ill and you need to make an appointment to be seen or if you are not sure if your child needs to be seen, please call our office as early in the day as possible. This will help us work in all emergencies in a timely fashion.
When does my child need a check-up?
Children require frequent health maintenance visits through childhood. We perform routine physical exams and health maintenance at 2 weeks, 1 month, 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 9 months, 12 months, 15 months, 18 months, 24 months, and then annually. Please schedule these appointments with at least one month’s notice.
What is a consultation appointment?
Consultation appointments are available to discuss medical and behavioral issues that are too complex to fully address at routine visits. Please call in advance to schedule these visits.
How do I get a referrals or a refill?
In an effort to meet your needs in a timely manner, please call for referrals and refills at least three days in advance.
What is HIPAA?
HIPAA is the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. It was created to ensure that a patient’s medical information does not fall into the hands of someone who could make an adverse determination about employment, insurability or otherwise discriminate on the basis of that information.
What does that mean to you?
Dr. Herron believes strongly in protecting her patients’ privacy and she welcomes the HIPAA guidelines.
