The physician and staff of the Memorial Pediatric Clinic welcome you to the practice and appreciate your trust in allowing us to provide medical care to your child(ren).
Monday - Friday, 8 am to 6 pm
Before and after office hours, on weekends and holidays, please call the office phone at (989) 729-4100 for emergencies only.
We try to keep appointment times as closely as possible. The nature of medical care and the occurrence of emergencies may cause delays and occasionally extend waits. We will try to keep you informed when this happens and ask your patience and understanding.
If an emergency should develop, you may call the office number 24 hours a day. If you feel that there can be no delay, please take your child to the nearest urgent care or emergency room. It is your responsibility to know the procedures required by your insurance.
Every effort will be made to keep your child from entering the hospital. When this becomes necessary, admissions will be to the facility as is appropriate for your child’s medical condition.
During office hours phone calls will be received by the receptionist and given to the medical personnel who are capable of answering your particular question. If the doctor’s opinion is needed, they will be consulted.
Please try to reserve after hours calls for emergencies only.
Well Child Visit Paperwork
Many of the serious childhood diseases can now be prevented by immunizations. The staff at the Memorial Pediatric Clinic is very pro-vaccination, and strongly encourage that parents follow the recommended CDC schedule for childhood immunizations. We recognize that this is a personal decision, and we will respect your right to opt out of these vaccinations. Although at this time we will not refuse to see your child if you elect to not vaccinate him/her, under no circumstances will waivers be signed for schools/daycare etc. Additionally, the staff is more than happy to discuss any concerns you may have and are happy to provide the most up to date and accurate information regarding vaccines.
