Routine Physical Exams

Your child will be seen during our regular office hours for well child care. Our office recognizes the importance of these well baby and well child visits. During these visits, we will attend to your child’s developmental, emotional, nutritional and educational needs. Personalized, age-appropriate anticipatory guidance will be discussed. Immunizations will be given according to the schedule recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the CDC. Our office follows the well child visit schedule as outlined by the American Academy of Pediatrics (newborn, 2 weeks, 1 month, 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 9 months, 12 months, 15 months, 18 months, 2 years and yearly thereafter). We encourage you to discuss any concerns at the time of your visit with your doctor. Please bring immunization records and insurance cards to every visit.

Sick Visits

Our policy is to see anyone requesting an appointment for a sick child on the same day if at all possible. If your child needs to be seen on an emergency basis, we will make every effort to take care of you as soon as possible. There may be times, however, when it is physically impossible to see all the patients who request to be seen on a given day. Please call as early as possible to arrange a time after 8:00 a.m. Walk-In patients will be scheduled for the next available sick slot. Legacy Pediatrics does not offer walk-in hours.

Telephone Calls

We welcome telephone calls during regular business hours concerning your child's health. All calls will be returned within 48 hours from when they are received by one of our health care providers. If you feel the situation is urgent, please make that clear and your call will be returned as soon as possible. Please provide specific, detailed information to facilitate the best assessment of the situation. Remember, without the benefit of examining your child, it is not possible to make a diagnosis over the telephone. Also, it is necessary to call during business hours regarding appointment requests or cancellations, prescriptions, lab results, and referrals. Our answering service does not accept messages regarding these matters.

After Regular Office Hours

Legacy Pediatrics provides an answering service for after-hours urgent matters. The answering service will evaluate your call and, depending on the situation, will give you advice based on telephone triage protocols or contact the provider on call.
