do not understand any directions.

How You Can Best Help Your Child
The ultimate responsibility for your child’s health lies with you. You
can help us in providing the best care for your child by:
- Learning about your child’s health. We
may suggest changes at home and in your lifestyle. We know these
changes are not easy, so we suggest learning as much as possible so we
may work with you on any problems.
- Letting us know as much as possible during your
visit. Keep a journal if necessary.
- Asking questions. Do not hesitate to ask about
your child. The better you understand the problem, the easier it is
- Calling 24 hours in advance if you have to cancel
- Understanding your financial obligations. Each
insurance company’s policies are different. We work with a number of
insurance firms, and our billing office will submit claims, on your
behalf, to the insurance companies with which we participate. For more
