Before Your First Visit

We are so glad that you have chosen PAMPA and look forward to participating in the health care of your child. Here is some helpful information you may want to know about our practice.

Office visits are available by appointment only Monday through Friday. On Saturday morning, our Marietta office is open to see sick patients on a first come first serve basis from 8:30 to 11:00 a.m.

When your child becomes ill and needs to be seen, we ask that you call as early as possible for a same day appointment. This will help us plan for all patients and lessen your waiting time in the office. Calling ahead to schedule appointments and limiting unexpected visits will greatly help us serve you and our other patients better. Our office staff is available Monday through Friday beginning at 7:45 a.m. for your convenience.

You may plan ahead and schedule your child’s well check ups in advance.

If your son or daughter is coming home from college and will need an annual check up, please call to schedule six weeks ahead to reserve your appointment. Our appointments for young adults fill up quickly. Remember we can continue to see young adults until their 22nd birthday and offer evening well check up appointments in all four of our locations to accommodate busy schedules.

We schedule appointments up to two to three months ahead of time for your convenience. We value the continuity of care you allow us to provide for your child. Scheduling your well visits in advance will better allow you to select your preferred location with your provider.

Sometimes an illness occurs on the day of a patient’s well check up visit. When this occurs, please inform our staff of your concerns so that we can attend properly to all your health needs. If a significant illness occurs, we may address the more acute concerns at your scheduled visit and reschedule your well visit for another time. We may recommend additional appointments for very complex illnesses and/or chronic health problems that require additional time to fully address your concerns.

Missed appointments

We certainly understand that occasionally circumstances arise that prevent patients from keeping appointments. Please know that cancelled or missed appointments are a loss to everyone. The office requires a 48 hour cancellation for confirmed appointments. We will contact you if you have missed an appointment in order to reschedule at your earliest convenience. For patients that have missed more than one appointment, a fee may be charged.
