When to Schedule an Appointment

Well Child Visits

  • Well Child appointments may be scheduled up to 3 months in advance.  Woodinville Pediattics follows the American Academy of Pediatrics’ recommendations for frequency of well child examinations.
  • Children under 3 years of age are seen at 7-10 days, 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 9 months, 12 months 15 months, 18 months, 24 months, and 30 months.
  • Annual exams are recommended for children 3 years to 19 years.
  • Other special age considerations.
    • The 12 month exam must be completed after the child has turned 12 months of age for immunization purposes.
    • 4 year old annual physical exams must be completed after the 4th birthday for the immunizations to be recognized for kindergarten enrollment.
  • If your child is being seen for a Well Child appointment and you have other concerns that are not related to routine wellness care, those concerns may generate other charges to you and/or your insurance.

Sick Visits

  • Call our office when your child is ill to schedule an appointment. We will schedule an appointment for you or offer you an opportunity to speak to one of our specially trained nurses if necessary.
  • Give a brief statement of your child’s symptoms so the appointment can be scheduled for the appropriate amount of time.
  • Woodinville Pediatrics often schedules sick appointments on the same day for urgent issues.
  • Each child in the family will need an individual appointment. Please let the scheduler know if you have multiple children needing appointments. Each patient requires additional time and unexpectedly adding patients can cause delays.
  • Arriving at the office without an appointment will result in a wait until an appointment time becomes available.
  • Urgent concerns  should be discussed with our specially trained nurses to determine the appropriate time and  location for services.
  • Follow up appointments can be scheduled at the desk following your appointment.

Weekend Care

  • Woodinville Pediatrics is open most Saturdays. They must be scheduled on Saturday. They are not “drop-in” appointments. Saturday appointments are available for semi-urgent problems, for example: ear infection, cough, cold, etc.
  • Well child examinations and chronic illnesses are scheduled during the week.
  • Appointments are scheduled in the order that the calls are received.

Appointment Tips

  • Always call for an appointment so we can best schedule you with a provider for your care.
  • Please inform us when scheduling if you have more than one child that needs to be seen. Each patient requires additional time and unexpectedly adding appointments can cause delays for other patients.
  • Call us in advance if you must cancel your appointment. Your cooperation allows us to use this time to see a another child.
  • Be on time for your appointment. We believe your time is valuable, and we strive to see you and your child at the scheduled time. If you are late for an appointment we may ask you to reschedule your appointment. If you are unable to keep your appointment, please call in advance to let us know, allowing us to schedule another patient. Not calling to cancel an appointment may result in termination of services.
  • Note the location of your appointment. Some of our providers rotate between offices so our schedulers will confirm the location of the appointment with you.

Triage Nurse Telephone Care

Our nursing staff is trained to handle routine questions and help determine if an appointment is needed or if advice can be given over the telephone. Our nursing staff will also determine if your physician’s involvement is necessary in answering the question.  The nurses will discuss your questions with your physician between patient examinations and call you back with their instructions. This allows a quick response to your questions. All calls to our nurse line will be returned the same day. If the nurse determines your physician needs to speak to you, the physician will return your call over the lunch hour or at the end of the day. Calls are processed in that way to keep our physicians on time for scheduled appointments.
