"I am delighted that you have chosen Ennis Pediatric and Adolescent Health Care Center as your child’s medical home. I look forward to being your child’s pediatrician for many years to come! I wish to be a resource to you and your family on all matters relating to your child’s health and well-being.

First Visit

Preparing for Your First Visit
We request that all new patients provide us with basic health and general information.

We prefer that you complete the following forms online. If you are not able to do this, please complete and print the PDF forms and mail them to our office prior to your scheduled visit.

If you are going to be late for an appointment, please call our office to notify us that you will be late. If you are more than 30 minutes late, there is a chance that you will not be seen. We do everything we can to accommodate you, but we will give priority to those families who have arrived on time.

Vaccine Record
We will need a copy of your child’s vaccine record. Please mail a copy of your child’s vaccine record to our office before your first visit. If this is not possible, please bring the vaccine record to your visit.


Office Protocols

All patients must have a scheduled appointment.  The only exception is our Walk-in Clinic offered on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Fridays mornings between 8:00 and 9:00.   Otherwise, please use our Request an Appointment online form to set a date and time that is convenient for you.

Note:
If the appointment request form does not load, you may use either Firefox or Google Chrome to view the form.

No Show Policy

We expect our families to cancel any appointment that they will not be able to honor. If your child misses an appointment without a call to cancel or reschedule, we consider this a “no show”. We maintain a No Show Policy where any child that has three “No Show” appointments will be considered for dismissal. 

Late Policy

When a patient is more than 5 minutes late, the appointment will be rescheduled. If you are running late for your child’s appointment, please call us so we can make accommodations to have your child seen. We will either reschedule for a later time or have your child see another provider. When our patients are on time, we see all patients in a timely manner!
