Make an Appointment

To help provide timely service to our patients, we prefer to schedule all visits. If you are later than 20 minutes for your appointment, we will try to work you back into the schedule, or perhaps offer an appointment to you with another provider, but we will have to mark your original appointment as a no show. Out of courtesy to our other patients, we may be forced to ask you to reschedule your appointment.

If you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment we ask that you give us 4 hours notice. If an appointment is canceled or rescheduled inside of the 4 hours we will be forced to mark the appoinment as a no show. If a patient accumulates 3 or more no show's in a 12 month period there is a risk of being dismissed from the practice. 

If you would like us to see more than one child, please schedule both of them when you make your appointment. Without an appointment, we may not be able to see a sick sibling right away, and you may be asked to wait while the provider sees scheduled patients first.  

All sick visits require an appointment and are scheduled the same day only. There are a few clinical reasons in which a future sick appointments can be scheduled, but this is determined by the provider only. Calls that come in each day for sick appointments are triaged and scheduled accordingly.

Weekend Clinic, on Saturdays & Sundays, is also by same day sick appointments only and is meant for acute illnesses, not issues that have been going on for weeks. 


To keep your children healthy, it is important to bring them in for regular checkups. Above 2 years of age we strongly encourage annual well visits. Below 2 years of age the visits are more frequent so that we can follow the CDC immunization schedule. Our doctor's and nurse practitioner's appointment times fill up fast, so we recommend that you call 432-620-8687 weeks in advance so you may choose the date that best fits your needs. It is best to keep the appointments closely after the child's birthday for insurance and billing purposes. Please review our recommended schedule for Well Child Visits.

It is also important to schedule care plan appointments (consultations) months ahead as well. Care plan follow up appointments include, but are not limited to: asthma, diabetes, ADHD, or other medication rechecks.

The doctors take emergency calls after hours. Call the main office number, and our answering service will page a doctor to call you back. Please save routine questions (mild illness, appointments, prescription refills) for the morning. We encourage you to refer to our website first, when practical, before calling the office.

If an emergency should arise, please call 911.

Emergencies are considered to be those conditions that are life-threatening: loss of consciousness, severe bleeding, seizure, etc. In the case of minor emergencies (lacerations, cuts, mild fractures, sprains), please call our office first for instructions.
