What to Expect

In order for a child under the age of 18 to receive care by The Pediatric Group, a parent or a legal guardian must accompany their child to an appointment. When a parent is unable to come with their child to the scheduled appointment, written permission, signed by the parent or legal guardian, must be presented before the child can be treated.

Each time you visit our office, please bring a photo ID and your health insurance card along with any co-payment if required by your insurance carrier. Before your appointment, please review your insurance plan details because co-payments, deductibles and reimbursements may vary in amount according to the type of visit scheduled. The Pediatric Group accepts all private insurance plans and participates in many HMOs and PPOs.

We ask that you arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time to complete all necessary paperwork, including the Minor Registration Form if not completed prior to your visit.

If your child is a new patient with The Pediatric Group, please have all medical records transferred to our office. This request must be made in writing to the previous practitioner by the parent or legal guardian. Having access to your child’s medical records prior to their appointment will provide us with the necessary information to give your child the best possible care right from the start.
