You are encouraged to call during office hours with any questions about your child's health. Many times illnesses can be cared for at home. You should be prepared to discuss your child's symptoms, temperature, and medications on hand when you call.

If you have an emergency and cannot wait to have the call returned, please say so.

If your child is sick, please call the office as early in the day as possible, so we can see your child promptly.

If you cannot keep an appointment, please call and cancel so that someone else may be scheduled at that time.
Prescriptions and medication renewal requests should be made during office hours. Antibiotics will not be prescribed without seeing the patient.

BILLING, INSURANCE, & PAYMENT
We participate in most of the major health insurance plans and Tenncare plans. The contracts with the insurances are reviewed periodically and we may elect to add other plans. These plans will be billed directly for all services, but you will be required to pay the co-payment or deductible at the time of your visit.
If you are unsure of your coverage or the amount you will be expected to pay, we suggest you contact your insurance carrier before the office visit. Also, please bring your insurance card with you to your appointment for us to make photocopy. Newborn care and hospital charges will be filed with your insurance carrier. If your bill presents an excessive financial hardship, please contact our office manager so that we can make arrangements for a fair payment schedule.
