Practice News


 
 

COMING SOON!
CREDIT CARD ON FILE
Beginning 8/15/17, Sapphire Pediatrics will begin our new Credit Card on File policy for all patients.
Sapphire Pediatrics has decided to implement this new policy to:
1. Create a faster check-in and check-out process for our patients
2. Easier payment process for copays, balances, and deductibles both in office and through our billing company
3. Eliminate paper waste

NOTE: Your credit card information is not kept on file in this office.  It is on a secure website called a gateway, and this office does not have access to the full credit card number once it is entered into the system the first time.  This gateway is more secure than having your card scanned each visit.


Now scheduling school and camp physicals!  Call today for your child's appointment.

Camp and School Forms Process
 
 
  • Please remember, we process many, many, MANY requests for forms daily.
  • Please allow 5-7 days for us to complete and send your forms.
  • Please fax or mail your forms to the office, and include a return fax number or addressed/stamped envelope for us to send completed forms.
  • We can send forms via email if you have signed a email consent form.
  • Forms will be completed using data from your child's last "well child check". If that visit was more than a year ago, your child needs a "well child check" before we can complete forms. A check-up can usually be scheduled within 2 weeks-- call for an appointment.
  • If your child has a check-up scheduled in the near future, bring your forms to the appointment. We will do our best to fill them out during the appointment.
 
Thanks in advance for your understanding!
