Parental Consent to Treat
As the parent or guardian of the minor I authorize the onset to any examination, anesthetics, medical or surgical diagnostic or treatment procedures deemed necessary for the treatment of my child by any and all providers of Ideal Pediatrics. I understand that all treatment will be discussed and consent given at the time of treatment, unless an emergency situation dictates otherwise.
No Show Policy
We understand that circumstances arise that do not allow you to keep your appointment. If you need to cancel, we ask that you call at least 24 hours prior to your appointment time. You can leave a voicemail to cancel the appointment. Also, arriving more than 15 minutes late will count as a ?no show?, and in most cases we will not be able to see your child. Arriving without a copay will also be counted as a missed appointment.
No Show Fees: Charges will be assessed per child. 1st & 2nd missed appointments: $75 each. 3rd missed appointment: $75 and you will have a 30 day period to find a new pediatrician.
If you have extenuating circumstances that cause you to miss an appointment, please let us know.
