POLICIES

At Friendly Hills Pediatrics, we believe that all children are the future, and caring for their health and well-being is an honor and our priority.

We only see patients who have scheduled appointments. Please call us or send us a message on our website to make an appointment. We may offer you a same-day appointment if our schedule permits it.

Our practice makes every effort to run on time with appointments, as everyone’s time is equally valuable. We ask that you make every effort to arrive at the office at your scheduled appointment time. You may be asked to reschedule your appointment if you are more than 10 minutes late.

If you miss the appointment or do not give at least one business day’s cancellation notice, you will be billed $40. Your child’s appointment was provided exclusively for them. A one-day cancellation notice during business hours is required to avoid a broken appointment charge.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all sick visits will be screened via text or phone.  Call ahead and make an appointment.  If an exam is needed, an appointment will be made as needed. 

All well-child visits should be made at least one week ahead of time.
