Appointments

Growing Healthy Together means having appointments available and open communication with your child’s healthcare provider.

We are available and eager to help between 6 am and 10 pm, seven days a week!  After 10 pm, you can leave a message with our on-call provider and we will address your question first thing in the morning.  For urgent questions after 10 pm and before 6 am, you can call the 24-hour helpline your insurance provides.  They can help you decide if you need to go to the ER or wait until morning.  IF you don’t have insurance and think you need emergent care, go to the CHOC emergency department or urgent care.  Our favorite urgent care facilities in Long Beach are https://www.memorialcare.org/locations/memorialcare-medical-group-long-beach-los-altos and http://nairurgentcare.com.  For all emergencies, call 911.

If you’re new to our office, please call (562) 473-4441 to schedule a consultation or regular appointments with an experienced nurse practitioner. We are a Pediatric and Family Clinic serving patients in the Los Alamitos, Huntington Beach, Cerritos, San Pedro, Bellflower, Lakewood, Westlake & Southern California areas.

If you’ve been in the office already, please log in to our patient portal, where you can:

  • make and check appointments except for sick or vaccine-only appointments,
  • send us messages,
  • find forms,
  • and access your lab results and health data.

If you do not have access to the patient portal, please request a link by calling us at (562) 473-4441 or emailing us at ght@ghtkids.com.

Well Visit Appointments

Schedule wellness visits, physicals, and new patient visits with complex histories (autism, ADD, etc.) one to two months in advance.

Schedule of Pediatric Well Checks

  • 1 – 3 days after birth or discharge from hospital
  • Two weeks old (if medically necessary)
  • 2, 4, 6, 9, 12, 15 & 18 months old
  • Two years old and 2½ years old
  • Ages 3 – 21 years old, one wellness or school physical is covered per year

Sick Visits are booked as quick, maximum 15-minute appointments focused on the patients’ chief complaint.

Vaccine-only visits are fast turn-around appointments scheduled for pre-planned vaccines.  These appointments are reserved only for established patients.  Vaccine planning requires a separate consultation with a provider.  Copays and deductibles apply for consultation visits.

New Patient Appointments

A $50 non-refundable deposit is required for new patients at the time of scheduling to confirm and hold your appointment. The deposit is applied to the cost of the visit or applied to a future visit. If you cancel your appointment at least 24 hours before, the deposit will be applied to a future appointment. If you miss the appointment, you will lose your deposit.

Payment of Fees and Unpaid Accounts

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