General Office Policies

Visits to our offices are by appointment only.  Patients who come without appointments cause delays.   We emphasize primary care and encourage families to see the same physician for all their well visits.  We also try to have patients see the same physician for sick visit if scheduling permits.  We always guarantee that a sick child will be seen the same day within office hours and do our best to try and give you a convenient appointment time.

At Edgewater Pediatrics, we strive to honor all scheduled appointment times.  We understand that circumstances will arise and request that you notify us of any last minute changes as soon as possible.  Our computerized scheduling system is designed to minimize long waits and overbooking.  If you miss an appointment, please call to cancel and reschedule at least 24 hours in advance.  Missed appointments delay needed vaccinations and keep us from providing the best pediatric care.  We ask for your cooperation when making an appointment and request that you make note of the date and time.  We will call a couple of days prior to confirm your appointment as a reminder.
