Preparing for your visit

Please see the downloads linked at the end of this page related to our additional COVID-19 safety precautions. These resources will help your child understand what to expect before your appointment.

Appointments with your medical providers last about one hour. Appointments with the psychologists will last four to six hours.

Please have your primary care doctor fax us a completed referral form (download below).

It is important that your child gets a good night's sleep and eats breakfast the day of the appointment. Arrive 15 minutes before your appointment to complete paperwork. If you arrive 30 minutes or more after your appointment time, your child will not be seen and you must call the appointment line to reschedule.

Bring the following items to your appointment:

  • Insurance cards
  • Copies of medical information
