APPOINTMENTS
An initial consultation may be booked for either a 2-hour comprehensive appointment, or for a 1-hour focused consult; please plan your time accordingly.  During a pediatric appointment, Lindy meets with you and your child for the first 15 to 45 minutes, depending on their age.  The remainder of the appointment will be with the parent(s) only.  Our waiting area has toys and books for children, but out of concern for safety and security, we cannot allow children to be unsupervised.

FOLLOW-UP APPOINTMENTS
Follow-up appointments are scheduled for 50 minutes. 
Children are encouraged to be present unless other accommodations have been recommended.

FORMS
We request that you arrive 15 minutes early for your first appointment. 
Please print, fill out, and bring our New Patient Packet with you to your initial consult. For your convenience, all forms are provided below in a downloadable .PDF format. Each form is also available for individual download. 

We require the Patient Demographics + HIPAA, Cancellation Policy, and Credit Card Authorization prior to your initial consult. 

MEDICAL RECORDS
Please forward pertinent medical records to the office prior to your initial consultation, as they often provide valuable information.
Examples include recent lab work, allergy testing, immunization records, and neurologic or educational evaluations.
If you have any questions regarding which documents are relevant, please contact our office prior to your first appointment.
