Frequently Asked Questions

What should I bring to my child’s first visit?
Parents/Guardians are asked to bring their insurance card with one of our physicians listed as your child’s PCP (if applicable). We also ask that they bring a copy of the child’s previous medical records to our office, prior to his or her appointment. It’s also very important to bring any of the child’s current medication bottles, so we know exactly what your child is taking. Parents/Guardians should also be prepared to discuss family medical history as it relates to your child.

What should I do in an emergency?
In a life-threatening emergency call 911 and then call our office as soon as it is possible to do so.

Please call our office prior to seeking medical treatment in non life-threatening situations. We have a physician on-call 24 hours a day and there is always a Registered Nurse available to speak to you no matter what time of day or night.

What hospitals are your physicians affiliated with and where would my child go
if he/she needed to be hospitalized?

Our physicians are proudly affiliated with the Elliot Hospital in Manchester, NH. Our patients are encouraged to utilize the Elliot Hospital. As an Elliot Physician Network practice, we feel the partnership with Elliot Hospital allows for a better continuity of care.

What do I do when I need a health form filled out for my child?
If you require a health form to be completed, please call our office. Our office requires at least one week to complete health forms. Completed forms may be picked up during regular office hours. You may also provide us with a self-addressed stamped envelope and we would be happy to mail it to you.

What type of car seat should I buy for my child?
The best type of car seat depends on your child’s weight, height, and the type of car in which it will be located. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is a great resource to determine which car seat is right for you; available online at www.nhtsa.dot.gov.

How do I get a prescription refilled?
Please call our office one week before your child’s prescription will run out. Your PCP will review it and approve a renewal if appropriate. Our office can fax the renewal to your local pharmacy, mail it to your home, or if you prefer, you may pick it up at our office. Please call your pharmacy to see if the prescription is ready before you leave home.
