ADHD Welcome Packet
Pediatric Physicians, Inc is changing how we perform our ADHD services. You will need to be aware of the following information:
1) There will be an automatic fee of $50 for any missed ADHD appointment that is either a no call/no show or cancelled without timely notification (24 hours). This will NOT be billed to your insurance; this is self pay.
2) A parent or Guardian will need to bring your child in every 3 months for a recheck on medication and consultation. A sibling, grandparent, or step parent who is not a legal guardian may not bring a child.
3) PPI will NOT write for more than 3 months at a time of prescription medication. It is your responsibility to make appointments at Check-out to ensure you get a convenient appointment time. We will no longer be providing medication to bridge the gap between appointments.
4) You will need to ensure timely completion of all forms including and especially the Vanderbilt forms
5) Your physician only schedules ADHD appointments on certain days and during certain time periods (please ask at the front desk for clarification.
6) If you are more than 10 minutes late for your scheduled ADHD appointment, you will likely need to reschedule as these appointments are lengthy and not easily adjusted. No Call No Show/timely cancellation fees may apply.
