January 2022 Updates

Walk-In Hours Change- 7:30am-8:30am

Beginning Monday, January 3rd, our walk in hours will be changing. This is to allow us to schedule a dedicated walk-in provider while allowing us to see more patients throughout the day. Walk-in appointments will begin at 730am and end at 830am Monday-Friday. We will do our best to accommodate as many patients as possible however please remember that these are limited in quantity.

Self-Scheduling

All of our providers except Dr. Arthur are currently signed up for online self-scheduling. This allows you the ability to schedule your child's well visit from the comfort of your own home while avoiding the wait times on the phone. Same day sick appointments are also available to schedule. Please call us if you have any questions.

Forms

The price of forms will be increasing slightly beginning January 1st, 2022. School and sports forms requested outside of an appointment will cost $15 while FMLA forms will cost $25. 

COVID Vaccine Updates

We are now offering the COVID vaccine to children 5-11 years of age as well as those 12 years and up. Children must be an established patient and up to date on vaccines to schedule. Our 5-11year COVID clinics will be scheduled based on vaccine allocations. Follow our Facebook page to get the most up-to-date information on availability as we receive shipments!

Call/Visit Volumes

With the return to school, we are experiencing extraordinarily high call volumes and patient visits. We appreciate your patience as our wait times may be significantly increased during this time. Please see our self-scheduling link to try out our online scheduling for many of our providers!

Pre registration instructions:

1. Expect a pre registration link to be texted and/or emailed to you up to 3 days ahead of your scheduled appointment or same day for acute appointments. Please complete it as soon as feasible. This replaces all the paperwork previously done in the waiting room.


2. Allow up to 15 minutes to complete if it is your first time, after that 5 to 10 minutes depending on the visit type.


3. The registration page will time out for security reasons if you step away for more than a few minutes. You will need to start again, but prior input should be saved. It is way better to do it in one sitting though!


4. Please pay as part of the preregistration, it will save additional time! You can pay one time co-pay without placing your credit card on file. If you are unsure, if the payment seems incorrect, or you have a newborn choose the "pay in office" and we will collect if needed in the office.


5. The Office Policies will only be presented for you to sign once a year.

6. Complete the pre registration until you see the "Thank You" screen. Closing out early will cancel out all that work you just completed!


7. If you get something that looks like an advertisement at the end, you may close the browser and are not required to view it.

Walk-In Appointments: We are proud to return to offering our walk-in appointments for simple illnesses in established patients over the age of 4 months. Our walk-in availability is limited to 7:30am-8:30am Monday-Friday. When you arrive in our parking lot please come directly inside the sick side entrance.

Telemedicine: Several of our providers now offer telemedicine for specific types of visits. Please call our office to discuss this option.

Cleaning and Masking: While cleaning has always been a standard part of our day, we have increase the frequency of cleaning and ensured that we are only using cleaning solutions deemed to be highly effective against COVID-19. We also are utilizing UV light sanitizers in our sick patient rooms to help ensure that nothing is missed. We have a mask policy requiring all patients (and staff) over the age of 5 to wear a mask in our building at all times.

Waiting rooms: Our waiting rooms are currently able to be used however patients will have the option to wait in the car or in the waiting area. If the waiting area becomes too full, we will ask patients to return to their cars until a room is available to maximize social distancing within our office. We have separate sick and well entrances to help minimize intersecting of patients as well.
