- Please arrive on time for appointments. If you are more than 15 minutes late, you will need to reschedule.
- If you need to cancel an appointment, call at least 24 hours before the scheduled appointment time.
- If you miss more than three appointments without calling in advance to cancel, you may not be able to continue to receive care through our clinic.
When you call for an appointment, your child will be scheduled for a sick visit at the next available appointment time, which may be later the same day or the following day. Your child's regular doctor might not be available to see your child for the sick visit. If it is after hours and you need to speak with the doctor on call, call the answering service at 503-861-5535
If your child need a refill, please call the pharmacy. If your child is out of refills, call the office to find out if the prescription can be refilled over the phone. You may need to make an appointment with your doctor before the prescription can be refilled.
If you believe your child needs a new prescription, he or she must first see the doctor. No new medications will be prescribed over the phone.
Insurance, billing and referrals
Some services, such as diagnostic tests or well-child exams, are often not covered or have limited coverage by insurance, which would ultimately make these costs your responsibility. These costs may be prohibitive. Please review your insurance coverage.
