When a child has an illness cannot be anticipated or planned. Therefore, we have reserved multiple appointment slots throughout the day to accommodate these urgent visits. If you need an appointment for a sick visit, please all our office at 910-207-0777.
When the doctor recommends a follow-up visit, it is very important to schedule this appointment when you check-out in the office. Keeping the appointment is of equal importance. When a follow-up visit is missed, your child’s condition could worsen dramatically.
Chronic conditions like asthma, ADHD, chronic abdominal pain and mood disorders (depression, anxiety) require periodic visits to help control symptoms and to monitor for any medication side effects. Routinely, these conditions require visits every 3-6 months depending on symptom severity. In some situations, more frequent re-evaluation visits are required.
