Reception Rooms


We have two separate reception rooms for the sick and well children to minimize the chance of “catching something” at the doctor’s office.

The sick waiting room is for anyone that might be contagious. If there are symptoms of fever, cough, runny nose, sore throat, vomiting, diarrhea or rash, the patient should go to the sick waiting area.

The well waiting room is for the well check-up as long as the patient does not have a concurrent illness associated with sick symptoms, injuries, or rechecks that stem from a previous illness, headaches, backaches, abdominal pain without diarrhea or vomiting, ADHD checks , chronic noncontiguous illnesses.

If you are unsure where the best waiting room is for your child, please ask us. Children under the age of twelve should never be left alone in either reception room. For their own safety, they must be accompanied by you to the exam rooms.

Adolescents under 18 years of age should have a parent accompany them to the office appointment. If the adolescent wants privacy, that is fine as long as the parent is in the waiting room to sign for immunizations.
