Here are some of the services we provide:
Same Day Sick Visits
We provide a sufficient amount of slots in our schedule to accommodate sick visits. If by chance you are unable to obtain a same-day appointment or unsure if you really need to come in, our medical staff may offer assistance in the most appropriate course of action which, in some cases may be to go directly to the emergency room. Our phone lines open at 8:30 a.m. on Monday-Friday.
New Patient Visits/Well Visits
The first time you visit our office, there are some forms you must fill out prior to being seen. You can print the new patient forms and fill it out before coming in to ensure that the doctor sees you at your scheduled appointment. If you are unable to fill it out before the appointment, please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment in order to have enough time to complete all forms. Please also bring in the patient’s insurance information.
Please call our office to make sure we are on your insurance plan. We strongly encourage you to make your appointments as soon as possible and no later than 3 days after the discharge from the hospital.
Depending on your insurance, the newborn’s insurance will usually be under the mother for the first 30 days, so please bring in mom’s insurance information when coming in to your scheduled appointment.
If your child is 24 months or younger, they are most likely on a check-up schedule. Well-child check-ups focus on health and development issues and are also our best opportunity to vaccinate your child against common “childhood illnesses.” We recommend making your appointment in a month of advance in order to accommodate the preferred provider.
After 3 years of age, your child should have a yearly check-up. We recommend making your appointment in a month of advance in order to accommodate the preferred provider.
Most schools require a form to be filled out by a physician in order for your child to participate in their school’s athletic program. If a physical examination was done within 6 months, you can bring in the form and the physician will be able to fill it out. Please be aware that there may be a fee to fill out the form and may require 5-7 days for completion. If a recent physical examination was not done within 6 months, an appointment will be needed to conduct the sports physical in order to fill out the form. Please fill out and sign any portion of the form before bringing it in. Our office doors are open at 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. We recommend making your appointment in a month of advance in order to accommodate the preferred provider.
If you would like to schedule your child for an ear-piercing, we advise the parents to schedule an appointment when the patient is at least 6 months. There is a fee of $75 and this includes the two gold plated earrings and the ear-piercing done by Doctor Anjali Monga.
Appointments to review your travel situation should be made at least 2 weeks before you plan to leave the country. We will give you information regarding your destination and will provide the needed vaccinations for the trip.
Looking for a primary care physician for your new one can be very stressful. Therefore, we provide expecting mothers to meet with our doctors before choosing a primary care physician in order to help them make a perfect choice. Meeting with the doctor is usually to be scheduled on Thursdays at 5:30 pm. Please give us a call if you would like to schedule an arrangement to meet with the doctor.
The fastest way to have your child’s medication is to contact your pharmacy and ask them to fax the refill request to our office at (949) 733-2810. We will then have the doctor approve the request and will call you if the request was approved or denied.
You may also call our office at (949) 733-2800 and follow the prompts to the prescription refill line. Please be advised that certain prescriptions can only be filled by the original prescribing provider. To promote continuing care, it is imperative that certain medicines are followed by the original providing prescriber. Since the original prescribing physician did the initial history of present illness, only that physician would be best to document and prescribe further medicine.
