|Visits and immunizations for your child
might be slightly different, since children begin this schedule at
different times. Patients can contact the office staff during normal
office hours with medical, billing and insurance questions from 9:00
AM to 12:00 PM and 1:30 PM to 4:30 PM. Well visits are by appointment
only. Appointment times are Monday through Friday 9:00 AM to 11:30
AM and 1:00 PM to 3:30 PM. If your child is sick, you may call the
office between 9:00 AM and 9:30AM for an available appointment for
that day, or use the always-convenient walk-in facilities of the PCU.
If the office staff is unavailable, the answering service will contact
Dr. Cannizzaro or the practitioner on call for emergencies.
