Growing Healthy Together would like to thank all of our patients and families for choosing us as your pediatric provider.  We strive to provide the best medical care possible.  With your help, our practice has grown significantly in the past two years and we are grateful to you and your family. As our community of families grows, we have experienced greater demand for same-day appointments and sick visits.  We make every effort to provide prompt medical care to all of our patients.

In order for our office to operate effectively and provide the best service to you and your family, we need your cooperation with our appointment policies. Your clear understanding of these policies is very important. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

Payment of Fees and Unpaid Accounts

Payment is expected at the time of service.  We take many steps to avoid collections.  However, if your account to forwarded to a collections agency, you will be assessed a collection fee. This will be added to your final balance placed with the collection agency and you will also be responsible for all legal fees and court costs involved.
