Call for an Appointment
Please call 847-295-1220 to make an appointment for well child visits and vaccines at all offices.
Caring for our patients, their parents, and our staff and keeping them safe continues to be our primary concern. During this stay-at-home time, it's important to visit your provider for your child's preventative care. We offer separate times dedicated solely to well visits and we're taking extra precautions to keep our patients and staff safe.
-We continue to separate well visit and sick visit times for the day. Well visit appointment slots account for the vast majority of the day (morning through early afternoon) with sick visit times in the late afternoon (and not coinciding with well visits).
-Our front desk and nurse educators continue to apply screening questions for appointments.
-We continue to adhere to universal PPE protocols, having our staff in masks and using gloves, face shields, and gowns where necessary, and issuing masks to patients who need them.
-We continue to advocate that patients wait in their car until called back for their appointment. In addition, we limit the number of people in the waiting room and we adhere to social distancing recommendations.

If your health insurance coverage may be changing, it's a good idea to utilize your family's current insurance plan for your child's covered visits. Schedule your child's checkups and vaccinations by calling 847-295-1220.Back to article list
