We believe well checkups are an important part of your child’s health care. It is important to take a look at the unique qualities of your child, such as their growth and development. Your pediatrician has special training in evaluating problems related to growth and development, behavior and education. We encourage you to make the most of your well visits by trying to schedule these visits with the same one or two providers. This will build a relationship between you, your child, and your provider.

It is recommended that all children have a yearly check up Children with special needs, (prematurity, chronic health conditions), will generally be seen more often.
Unlike well visits, sick visits are designed to focus on the problem of that day. We will always try to get your sick child into the office the day you call. We also offer sick visits on Saturday mornings between 9 am and 12 noon. With a few exceptions, these visits are only scheduled on that day. The office opens at 8:30 am to begin scheduling.
We do allow a baby sitter or designated relative to bring the child to the office with the parent or guardian’s permission. We expect that the sitter will be able to tell us everything a parent would know. Adolescents can come on their own if a parent gives permission.
The AAP recommends that your regular provider is the best source of an athletic pre-participation exam. If you are due for a regular checkup we will include the form completion with the checkup. If you have had a regular checkup within the past year, we can fill out a sports physical form for you for a $5.00 fee.
If you need to just schedule a sport physical outside of a regular check up you may do so. The fee currently is $50
A sports physical is required for all public middle and high schools. A Virginia sports physical form can be obtained from your school or by clicking here.
We enjoy the relationships that are created with your child/young adult as they grow older. We also feel strongly that we can help our families by encouraging regular (yearly) visits and providing honest information and communication with our teenagers.
During check-ups, we cover issues that are frequently faced by teens. Being able to speak with teens in a confidential manner helps us to be good physicians for your child. For this reason, most of our providers like to spend some time with your teen, without a parent present, during adolescent visits.
We understand that there are times when a teen might want or need to come to the office by themselves for their appointments. This is fine under most circumstances, although there will be times when a parent or guardian will need to be present. When a teen comes to the office alone, it is best if verbal permission is given by a parent.
Latecomers & Missed Appointments
Patients arriving more than 15 minutes late for an appointment may be asked to reschedule. We reserve the right to charge for missed appointments.
Medical records summaries will be sent to any requesting physician or parent for a charge usually less than $25. These records are prepared by the Healthport a HIPAA compliant medical records company. If you have other needs please inform our staff.
