Can I meet one of the pediatricians prior to joining your practice?
Yes you can! While not a requirement, "parents-to-be" often choose to meet one of our pediatricians prior to their "new arrival". Expectant families new to the area or looking for a new pediatrician are also welcome to meet one of our pediatricians. Feel free to bring your child or children along! Simply call (414) 774-9200 during weekday clinic hours to schedule an appointment if you would like this opportunity. There is no fee for this visit.

How will the pediatrician know to come to the hospital after our delivery?
When you pre-register or register at the hospital before your delivery, indicate on the admission form who you intend to have as your child's pediatrician. The hospital staff will notify us shortly after your delivery.

After I deliver my baby (or babies), when will the pediatrician see us?
You can expect to see your pediatrician (or the pediatrician covering) within 24 hours of your delivery, usually between 7:00am and 10:00am. Your pediatrican will likely see your baby or babies daily until you go home.

When is my child too old to see a pediatrician?
American Academy of Pediatrics recommendations suggest transitioning 18-year-old patients to adult physicians (internal medicine or family practice) in order to provide more comprehensive and accurate care. We are happy to provide you with the names of trusted internal medicine and family practice physicians in the area.

My child is out of prescription refills, what do I do?
Call our office during regularly scheduled weekday clinic hours. We are unable to process refill requests on weekends. After speaking with us, you may either come by to pick up a written prescription or you may have your pharmacy call us. Refill requests will only be honored if the patient has been seen within the last 12 months for a well-child visit ("full physical"). This is necessary in order to protect the health of your child. Refills for all ADHD medications except those in non-stimulant classes must either be picked up, or you may provide us with self-addressed stamped envelopes to be mailed to you. If you choose to provide us with envelopes, you will still need to call us to request the refill.

Can I get this form signed?
We are happy to sign or complete athletic, daycare, school, camp and any other forms that relate to the health status of your child. We can only do so with parental permission (or the patient's permission if older than 18 years). We require that the patient has been seen within the last 12 months for a well-child visit ("full physical") before filling out any forms; visits for illnesses do not qualify. This policy is necessary in order for us to provide accurate information to the requesting agency and is meant to protect the health of your child as well as the liability of both the agency requesting the form and that of our practice.

Will your office send a reminder card in the mail about check-ups or vaccinations for my child?
We do not send out reminder cards. We feel strongly that the responsibility for remembering annual physicals and keeping your child up-to-date on vaccinations lies with you, the parent or caregiver. The health of your child is arguably one of the most important parental responsibilities. Part of our successful collaboration as families and physicians requires that a child be seen regularly for health maintenance visits and have a complete vaccination record. We pledge to do our part; all you need to do is remember to bring your child in.
