Forms and Policies
Our office provides comprehensive medical care for children from newborns to 21 years. The visits to the office are by appointment only. If you are late for your appointment and have not called and made arrangements, you may have to be rescheduled. We try to maintain your appointment schedule as well. However, sometimes emergencies and unpredictable circumstances during another patient’s visit might delay your appointment. Same day cancellations of appointments are subject to a cancellation fee. It is extremely important that you bring all of your child’s health and insurance information to the visit to prevent any inconvenience and delay in attendance to your child. If the child is sick and needs to be seen, we will try to accommodate the child that same day if the office schedule permits.
Don’t forget to call our office to verify and ensure that we participate with your insurance plan as participation may have changed. If you are required to have a primary care physician by your insurance plan, Dr. Naveen Mehrotra must be listed as the primary care physician on your card to cover the visit or we will not be able to see your child in the office. It is your responsibility to have the proper insurance information to be seen. If your plan requires a copayment, coinsurance, or deductible which is due at the time of the visit, it must be taken care of at the time of the visit.
If you have recently moved into the area or are looking for a new pediatrician, please call the office and schedule an appointment for a visit. Prior to the visit, please contact your previous pediatrician and ask for your child’s records to be transferred to Dr. Mehrotra’s office. The Release of Records form that needs to be given to the previous pediatrician is available on this site for your convenience. Any fees associated with the file/transfer of the file, is your responsibility and should be handled directly with their office
