Well Visits/ Sports Physicals
We offer well visits every day. We think that it is very important for every child to have a well visit every year. We allot a full half hour for the appointment, so the earlier you schedule the appointment, the more likely we will be able to accommodate your check-up.

Please call our office if you have a question about whether or not we take your insurance.

For any HMO plans, you must contact your health plan to notify them of your desire to have Dr. Richards-Rowley as the primary care provider prior to coming to the office. Please notify us of the effective date.

With so many changes in the insurance industry, it is ultimately the patients’ responsibility to understand the terms of your insurance (coverage, deductible, medication coverage etc). Depending on your insurance coverage, you may be responsible for co-payments, co-insurance or other deductible amounts at the time of service. We will always try to help you to understand your benefits, but as every plan is different, it is always a good idea to call the insurance company directly when you have a specific billing/coverage question.
