Your Child’s First Visit
Appointments may be scheduled by calling the office during regular office hours, Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Your child’s first visit with Dr. Gregory will probably be the longest. Please plan to be at our office for at least one hour. We ask that you arrive 30 minutes ahead of your child’s appointment to complete medical history and insurance information. You will need to bring the following information along to your child’s first appointment–unless our office has already received it:
- Referral from your child’s primary care provider for an office visit.
- Medical records from your child’s primary care provider.
- Results of any previous evaluations, including x-rays (bring films not just the reports.)
- Any information pertaining to prior pediatric GI evaluations, i.e., lab tests, procedures, procedure notes, biopsy results, etc.
*Due to limited space and the ability to maximize your time with the doctor, please plan on bringing only the scheduled child to the appointment.
After Hours Care
If your child has an urgent GI health care need outside of our regular hours, please contact your primary care physician, and your call will be referred to us as necessary. You can feel confident your child will receive the highest level of care no matter when you need it. If it is a medical emergency, call 911 or go immediately to the Emergency Department of your local hospital.
Dr Gregory will make every attempt to stay on schedule. It is difficult, however, to guarantee you will not have to wait past your appointment time. Occasionally emergencies do occur which may further affect the timeliness of the schedule. We will attempt to inform you of such delays. If waiting will be an inconvenience to you, we will reschedule your appointment to another time.
