During a prospective patient’s first visit to Kids First Pediatrics, parents should plan to arrive 15 minutes early in order to allow time for processing paperwork. New patient paperwork is available for download on the Kids First Pediatrics website at www.kidsfirstga.com. Parents should bring a current insurance card as proof of their child's coverage,and supply an immunization record if the child's shots were administered out of state.
Once a child becomes a regular patient at Kids First Pediatrics, parents may request a prescription refill on the company’s website or request a refill by phone. A staff member will call during office hours to confirm the request and obtain any further necessary information before authorizing the renewal with a pharmacy. For refills on ADD or ADHD medication, parents should contact the Kids First office where the child had his or her last visit which addressed the ADD or ADHD . Medical records can only be released to the parent or legal guardian of a child. To release records to or to request records from another physician, a transfer of records form must be completed and submitted to the office releasing the medical records. This form can be downloaded from the Kids First Pediatrics website.
