Scheduling an Appointment (Current Patients)

***We do not accept walk-ins***​​

Please call (201)-842-0501 to schedule an appointment and bring your insurance card to every visit. If any of your information has changed, please let the front desk staff know when you come in to the office.

  • Sick Visits

    • We make every effort to schedule appointments for sick children on the same day that you call. It is best to call in the morning if your child needs to be seen on that day. Same-day sick appointments will be taken up to one hour before the office closes and closing times are approximate.

  • Annual Wellness Exams

    • Wellness exams, including physical exams for participation in sports, must be scheduled at least 5-7 days in advance, however, they can be scheduled as early as months in advance. If your child is required to submit health forms by their school/camp, we recommend scheduling the wellness exam at least several weeks in advance to secure an appointment and avoid missing any form submission deadlines.

  • Follow-up Visits

    • If the provider asks you to bring in your child for a follow-up, we encourage scheduling the next appointment at the time of the current visit.

  • Other Visits​

    • All appointments are scheduled based on availability. To secure an appointment for your child at your desired time and day of week, it is best to call as early in advance as possible.​

ONLY fill out the patient registration form AFTER you have spoken with a member of our staff. Before calling, please check with your insurance if we are in network. You will not be able to schedule appointments until a member of our staff has reviewed your documents and informed you of your approval over the phone.

There is always a physician on call. After regular hours and on weekends and holidays we have a 24 hour answering service.
