There is a $5 – $10 charge for school forms depending on length. Of note, school forms can only be completed if we have seen your child for a physical exam within the year. The normal processing time for form completion is usually 1 week.

The provider will return all phone calls personally during office hours free of charge. Patients are welcome to call after hours and talk to our nurse triage service for urgent matters.  You may receive an $22 fee for phone calls that are not urgent during non-business hours.

For medical questions that are non-urgent, please use the help/advice line located on the back of your insurance card.
