What do I need to bring with me to my appointment?
Please bring your insurance card, payment, vaccine record, and a list of current prescriptions as well as over-the-counter medications.
In order to see a specialist, do I need a referral from my primary care physician?
To determine whether you need a referral from us before seeing a medical specialist, view the terms of your insurance plan. Often, this information is listed on the insurance card or can be obtained by calling the insurance company. Our medical providers can refer you to a specialist if your child’s health situation requires it or if your health insurance company requires a referral prior to visiting a specialist.
How long does it take to obtain an appointment?
Calling our office at the first sign of illness helps to ensure that you receive an appointment time sooner rather than later. Normally, we are able to schedule same-day or next day appointments for those requiring sick child care.
For comprehensive, compassionate and accessible care for your child, trust Progressive Pediatrics to give him or her a health advantage.
