Making Your First Appointment

In order to provide the best care possible, we feel it is important to fully understand your child's health history. For this reason, it is important that we first have the opportunity to review your child's health records from their previous pediatrician/physician.

  • Before you send any medical records to our office, please call us at 616-949-4465 and one of our Patient Services Specialists will register your child/ren.
  • Once you are registered, download the form below and send it completed through the mail, email or fax to your previous pediatrician/physician.
  • After we receive your child/ren's medical records, your new pediatrician will have two weeks to review their records.
  • When the doctor is finished reviewing the records, we will contact you to schedule your child/ren's initial appointment.

If you have any questions, feel free to give us a call or email us at

You can download this form: to request records from your former doctor's office.
