Prescription refills may be requested via telephone or in the office. Prescription refills may be requested by 3:00pm daily (Monday – Friday) to be available by 10:00am the next weekday morning (in most cases). Please note: prescription refill requests for ADD/ADHD medication require at least 3 days advanced notice (due to the fact that the attending physician must provide the refill prescription). Prescription refill requests will not be addressed outside of regular business hours. You can also request prescription refills through the portal.
WELL CHILD EXAMS
Routine appointments generally follow the recommended immunization schedule: newborn, 2-months, 4-months, 6-months, 9-months, 12-months. Toddlers return at 18-months and 2-years. Children age 3 and older are seen yearly. Interperiodic and sports physicals are also available in our health maintenance scheduling.
AFTER HOURS NURSING ASSISTANCE
Mountain Area Pediatrics representatives are available 24 hours/day – everyday. We make every effort to be available to meet the medical needs of your child(ren). In an effort to assist you even when we are closed, please feel free to utilize our nursing telephone triage service. The contact information for the triage service is readily available by contacting our office at 828-254-4337 anytime the office is closed or by calling the nursing triage service at 828.229.7234. Please note that the after hours triage nurse will not be able to address concerns relative to scheduling, prescription refill requests, or business/account issues.
We make every effort to accomodate your request(s) for appointments during specific time frames. Please be aware that all of our patients are pediatric patients. It is typically not possible to accomodate a request for appointment times outside of “school hours” – especially for routine visits.
