How early should I schedule a well-visit?
For infants and toddlers (up to the 2 year appointment), please plan on scheduling your next well-visit at the time you are checking out of your current appointment. For children 3 years and up, please allow 2-3 months leeway when scheduling yearly well-visits. This helps to ensure that you are able to get an appointment time that works best for you and your child’s schedule. Please keep in mind that the months of June through September are very busy for school-age children to have their well exams and appointments fill quickly.
Please bring any forms that need completed to your yearly well child exam. All forms brought to our office at times other than the well child exam will need 24-48 hours for the provider to review the chart and complete the paperwork. Our providers will not sign any forms unless the child has had a Well Child exam in the last 12 months.
School and Sports physicals are often required by schools within the six month period before school begins. If you know that your child will require a school or sports physical please call ASAP to schedule.
Follow up appointments are appointments that your pediatrician has requested you make to evaluate ongoing medical issues. Examples of these appointments would be weight check visits, headache follow up visits, developmental follow ups visits and asthma follow up.
How do I request refills of my child’s ADHD medication?
ADHD medications are highly regulated by the FDA. Refills for these medications are not allowed to be electronically submitted nor called in to the pharmacy. Prescriptions for these medications must be individually prepared and do expire. Therefore, if your child has been prescribed one of these medications, your doctor will provide you with an initial set of prescriptions. In 3 months, you will need to call our office to request the next 3 months of prescriptions and your schedule your next ADHD med check visit. These prescriptions will need to be picked up at our office.
How often are patients with an established diagnosis of Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) seen?
Your child will need to be seen every 3 months, three times (to closely monitor growth and blood pressure) for a medication check and a final for the year for a combined well-visit and medication check.
