Office Policies

If your child is a new patient, we’ll set a time for you to come in and fill out demographic and medical history paperwork. At that time, we’ll schedule your child’s first appointment with one of our physicians on a different day.

Note: By Florida law, we are unable to see patients until we have demographic information and a medical history on file.
