Here are some things to consider when choosing a medical home for your child:

  1. Please read Are we a good fit for you?. Excellent care happens when the physicians and office staff are aligned with your family priorities and philosophies regarding medical care (i.e. vaccines, use of antibiotics, office hours, etc.)
  2. Check to see if we are a participating provider under your insurance. Click here for a list of insurances that we accept.
  3. Call our office as soon as possible once you have decided to enroll with us. We will register your child(ren) over the phone and ask you for your child’s insurance information. Our staff will then give you instructions on requesting your child’s medical records from his/her previous provider, and send you a new patient packet. It is very important that we have your child's medical records transferred from your previous provider as soon as possible. This helps us to provide the best care possible for your child. When you contact your previous provider, ask them what you need to do to request your child's records and have them sent to us. Sometimes there will be a form for you to complete and sign. Ask them how long it will take, and whether or not there is a charge.
  4. Once your child’s medical records have been received in our office and your insurance verified, our staff will contact you to let you know that the records have been received. If your child is due for a well visit within the next three months, you may schedule this appointment. If your child's well visit is not due yet, staff will arrange for you to receive a reminder call when it is time for the visit to be scheduled.
