The Front Office Staff will be the first group you will interact with during your visit. Between car pool, football practice, and swim lessons, our receptionist will do her best to schedule an appointment that is convenient for you. At check-in, the staff will verify your insurance and payment information and prep your chart for the visit. At check-out, they will collect any co-payments or deductibles, schedule your next well child checkup, and print a shot record if needed.

The Billing Office Staff strive to stay up to date with the changes in healthcare. They will file your claim and follow up on any unpaid services. If a service is denied, our staff will appeal on your behalf to try to get the claim paid. Only then will any unpaid service be billed to you.

The Phone Nurses: RNs and pediatric trained medical assistants are available to answer your questions during office hours.

The Managers: Combined, they have over 60 years experience in the medical field. (Wow! None of them looks that old!) Each department has a manager that reports to our office manager. Together, they make sure the practice runs smoothly and are constantly trying to improve the efficiency of the office.
