No you will not need to fill anything out until you come in for your first visit.
We have individual waiting rooms for all patients. Patients are put into their own room to wait. Each room has a couch, books and toys and resembles a comfortable living room. Each with its own theme.
Our staff includes:
We partner with the team of hospital specialist pediatricians at Beaumont Childrens Hospital and Childrens Hospital of Michigan to see your newborn or child when needed in the hospital. Having the specialists manage the newborns and children in the hospital results in better coordinated care while there and with the good communication we have with the team when you come to the office after discharge we will pick up the ball and run with it.
We do accept families choosing an alternate vaccine schedule if they are willing to follow the tenets of the Patient Agreement. We strongly encourage vaccination and require parents opting to vaccinate off the recommended schedule sign a ‘Refusal to Vaccinate’ form each time vaccines are offered acknowledging their choice and giving a reason for their decision to opt out. If you are vaccinating on an alternate schedule we encourage you to set up a 30 minute Vaccine Consultation appointment as your first visit with the provider so you can discuss the schedule you plan to follow, learn the process our office uses to schedule the ‘vaccine only’ visits, and have all of your questions and concerns about vaccines answered. New patients to the practice as of March 2, 2015 will need to initiate vaccination of their infants by 6 months of age and older infants and children behind on vaccines within a month of joining the practice as part of our new vaccine policy. For more information about our vaccination views and policy, see our Vaccine page.
