Appointments Policy

To make an appointment for a sick child, please call the office at 815-937-3515 (Bourbonnais) or 815-694-3429 (Clifton). 

Please call as far in advance as possible to make an appointment for a well check or a physical examination, including a school physical. This allows us to see your child at a time that is convenient for you and works within our doctors' busy schedules. 

In most circumstances we open our providers’ schedules several months in advance. Because of changing vacation and conference schedules, there may be instances where these appointments must be changed. Please keep this in mind when booking far in advance. 

For more urgent situations, we will make every effort to see your child the same day. Please check the office hours for our locations. The doctors do their best to stay on schedule; however, emergencies arise that may cause you to wait. Please be patient with us, knowing that if you had an emergency, we would put you first.

Patients who are late for their appointments will be seen at the physician's discretion. If you are running late, we would greatly appreciate it if you call the office in advance, but we cannot guarantee that your physician will be able to see you. If you are scheduled for a same-day sick visit, and you are late, we may ask that you see another physician, or come back at anoher time. 

Please arrive a few minutes early before your appointment for check-in.
