Information for Parents

Welcome to High Point Pediatrics! Below you’ll find information we believe is important for our parents and patient to know.

Well Care Appointments

Our schedule for Well Care appointments book out quickly. We encourage you to call weeks before your child is due for a check up to schedule the Well Care exam.

For children under 3: The following visits are recommended for children under 2: Approximately 1 week, 1 month, 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 9 months, 12 months, 15 months, 18 months, and 24 months. 

For children 3-18 years of age: A yearly well care visit is recommended. 

We are happy to discuss illnesses during a Well Care appointment; however, these visits may be billed separately from the well visit and may require a copay. For more information, please see our Financial and Payment Policy

Sick Appointment (Work-in/Same Day appointments)

At High Point Pediatrics, we understand how busy life can be. Our providers have work-in slots available each day for same-day sick appointments. We encourage you to call for an appointment as early as possible.These appointments can fill up quickly. Same-day appointments are scheduled with the first available provider. Sick appointments can include, but are not limited to symptoms such as diarrhea, cough, ear pains, flu, vomiting and sore throat. 

Other Appointments

Less urgent issues such as acne, warts, or more chronic conditions (long standing abdominal pain, back pain, headaches, constipation, behavioral/emotional problems, eczema, etc.) should be scheduled in advance. High Point Pediatrics does not assign patients to a specific provider. If you or your child prefers to see a specific provider for Well Care visits, please schedule these appointments in advance.

Cancellations & Missed Appointments

Your appointment time has been reserved exclusively for you. We do our best to ensure that your child is seen as quickly as possible. Therefore, we require 24-hour notice for cancellations. If you miss an appointment without appropriate notification, the following actions will follow: 

  • 2 or more no show appointments will result in the first warning letter
  • Any appointments missed after the first letter, a second warning letter will be mailed, stating that you are at risk for being dismissed from our practice.
  • Appointments missed after the first two letter may result in dismissal from our practice. 

Late Arrivals

Please arrive on time for your appointments. We understand that your time is limited and important. We make every effort to see all of our patients in a timely manner. In order to provide you with prompt service, please arrive at your appointment time to complete any paperwork and insurance verification. Please be sure to have any material needed to be completed at the time of your child’s appointment. If you arrive more than 15 minutes late for your scheduled appointment, you may be asked to reschedule the appointment to a later date.
