Office Policies regarding cancellations, "no-shows" and immunizations
It is our office policy that we are unable to accommodate in our practice patients who do not show up for their first scheduled appointment. Similarly, patients who repeatedly cancel or do not show up for their appointments are unable to be accommodated.
We are unable to space out vaccinations or use specific brands. There are absolutely no data that support any benefit to children of doing this, and this office policy is consistent with the policies of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. We will treat your child with no less care than our own children or any of the thousands of children whose parents have entrusted us to help care for them at Patriot Pediatrics. It is also an office policy that if families are not comfortable immunizing their children according to the guidelines of the American Academy of Pediatrics, that since our office feels so strongly that this is the wrong decision, we require that you seek pediatric care at a different practice.
