Hunterdon Pediatric Associates offers appointments for health check-ups and sick child/emergency visits. While we allocate appointment time every day for sick child appointments, we realize that children do not get sick on a schedule. If your child becomes ill when our office is closed, CALL US. Someone is available to help 24 hours a day, every day of the year.
Hunterdon Pediatrics Associates also offers appointments for adolescent health, child development, asthma services, smoking cessation, weight management, sports assessment, and premature baby follow-up.
In order to provide efficient service to our patients, visits are by appointment only. We make a tremendous effort to stay on schedule and keep waiting time to an absolute minimum. We ask that you make every effort to be on time for appointments.
Patients who arrive late for well-child visits may be asked to reschedule. Patients who arrive late for an illness visit will be worked into the schedule with the next available provider.
A preventive or “well visit” focuses on staying as healthy as possible.
A disease management or “sick visit” focuses on medical problems like pains, fatigue, constipation, diabetes, heart problems, lung problems, etc. These problems require a different history, review of past treatments, lab tests and x-rays, and medication management.
If we combine a problem visit with your well visit, we will submit the appropriate codes and charges to your insurance company for BOTH the well visit and the problem visit. This is the correct and accepted way to bill for this type of appointment.
Please note, depending on your insurance plan, you may be responsible for a portion of the bill.
