OFFICE POLICIES
:
Sick and well entrances:
Casa Grande Pediatrics offer both sick and well entrances at our office. If you suspect that your child is ill, please respect others and enter on the sick side, this way we can avoid unnecessary exposure to our healthy children.

Smoking is prohibited inside our office. No food or drink, with the exception of baby bottles are allowed.
Please be respectful and limit the number of people who accompany you to the office as seating is limited.

If you suspect that your child has chicken pox, please inform the office staff prior to coming in so that a nurse or provider can assess your child prior to them entering our facility so as not to expose others.


Missed or cancelled appointments:
Appointments that you make are specifically for you and your child. If you are unable to make the appointment as scheduled, please be courteous and call the office so that we are able to see another child needing medical care in their place. If you call less than 24 hours to cancel your child’s appointment we cannot fill that space as we are under the impression that your child will be at their scheduled appointment.

If you are going to be more than fifteen minutes late for your child’s appointment, please be courteous and contact our office to see if we will be able to accommodate your late arrival. If not, we will be happy to reschedule your appointment.
