Office Visits & Appointments

Well Child Visits

Well-child exams are a vital part of a child’s health care. These visits give us the opportunity to examine the child for overall health, growth, and development. We also discuss nutrition, sleep habits, and age-appropriate topics such as potty-training, dental care, and safety issues. Regular wellness visits allow us to detect and address health problems before they become serious, or in some cases prevent them entirely!

Many of the well-child visits in the first year of life include immunizations. These help to protect the child from some harmful and potentially life-threatening diseases.

We encourage parents to keep a list of questions they may have and bring the list to the visit.

Office Polices & Procedures

Patient Privacy

Bloom Pediatrics providers and staff are governed by and comply with the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA). We are required to abide by the terms of our office Notice of Privacy Practices. We may change the terms of our notice at any time. The new notice will be effective for all protected health information that we maintain at the time. A copy of our current HIPPA statement is available upon request. Patients age 18 and older are required to sign a waiver authorizing parental access to their account. Parents of patients over the age of 18 will not be permitted to access any medical or billing information without written consent of patient.

Missed Appointments and Late Arrivals

Cancellations are required 24 hours prior to any well visit appointment and two hours prior to any sick visit via phone call to the practice. A “No Show” fee of $35 will be applied if an appointment is missed and not cancelled within the stated timeframe. Bloom Pediatrics reserves the right to refuse the rescheduling of missed double or triple sibling appointments. Multiple no shows, per family, within a twelve-month period may result in dismissal from the practice.

Appointment arrivals 20 minutes or greater than the scheduled appointment time may result in the need to reschedule the appointment.

Records Requests

Should you wish to obtain a copy of your medical records you must complete the authorization to release records form, which can be obtained by calling the office. This form needs to be completed in its entirety in order to process the request. Records will be mailed to the assigned account holder or available for pick up at the office within five business days of the request and receipt of the signed records release and payment of $15. All outstanding balances must be paid before records are transferred.

Health Appraisal/Sports Physical Forms

A health appraisal or sports form will be generated during every well visit. Upon completion, the form will be added to the patient portal and made available in the portal documents for your convenience.  If you require a health appraisal or sports form outside of a well visit and have had a well visit with a Bloom Pediatrics provider within the last year, you may request one by calling the office. A pre-populated health appraisal or sports form will be added to the portal. Please print the document and complete the top portion of the form (health history) and return via the portal or to the office for completion. This portion is required to be completed by a parent or guardian before a doctor will sign and return it to the portal. Forms requested outside of a well visit require three business days for completion.

Referrals

Some insurances may require a referral to be completed by our office in order to see a specialist. Please refer to the list of recommended specialists given to you during your visit. If you did not receive a list, one can be requested by calling the office. Once you have scheduled the specialist appointment, please call Bloom Pediatrics with the date, time and name of the specialist with whom you have an upcoming appointment and your referral will be completed within 3 business days. 

Medication Refills and Prior Authorizations

If you are in need of a medication refill or require a prior authorization for a medication, please call the office and leave a message for a nurse. Medication refills may require an associated medication refill or medication re-check visit. Prescriptions will be sent to the preferred pharmacy on file with the office unless otherwise requested by the assigned account holder.

Vaccines save lives.

At Bloom Pediatrics, we believe that all children should receive the recommended vaccines according to the guidelines provided by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the CDC. Vaccines are safe and effective in preventing diseases and health complications in children and young adults. Regular vaccinations help children ward off infections, and are administered as one of the safest and best methods of disease prevention.

We are a vaccinating practice

Bloom Pediatrics requires that all of our patients are immunized according to the current vaccine schedule recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics. All potential new patients must be up-to-date with their vaccines. We do not accept new families that do not vaccinate their children.
