At East Suburban Pediatrics, our entire team is committed to providing the highest quality healthcare for your child.
As a part of this, we ask that every family have a clear understanding of our policies and procedures. This allows you to know and understand what actions our staff will be taking on your behalf as well as what your responsibilities are.
Appointment Cancellation/No Show
Please help us, and all of our patients, by being considerate and giving our office adequate notice if you need to cancel an appointment. This allows someone else who needs our service the opportunity to schedule.
East Suburban Pediatrics requests a 24-hour notice for any appointment that you are unable to attend. However, we understand that this is not always possible. If you are unable to make your appointment, please call our office no later than 7:30 AM on the day of your visit. If you are calling after hours, please leave a message on our answering machine. A $25 fee will be charged in the event that the appointment was not cancelled prior to 7:30 AM on the day of the visit.
Patients who repeatedly miss or come late to their appointments may be asked to find another provider.
If you are running late for your appointment, please call the office so we can advise you how we will need to handle the appointment. If you arrive more than 20 minutes late for your scheduled appointment, we may have to reschedule for a different time.
Attendance at Visits
Well child visits up to 18 years of age require a parent or guardian in attendance.
Children 16 years and older may come alone for sick visits with a parent’s permission documented on our office form.
Forms will be completed at your child’s well visit at no cost. There is a $5 fee for any form that needs to be completed outside of the well child visit. Payment for the form must be made when the form completion is requested. There is a 5-day turnaround time for forms not presented at the time of the well child visit.
A $10 fee will be charged for a form that needs to be completed on the same day as the request is made.

East Suburban Pediatrics is committed to protecting your health information through the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA).
