If you need to cancel your appointment, please provide at least 72 hours’ notice. Another family will be grateful for your time. Please be aware that if you arrive late for your visit or without required paper work, your appointment may be rescheduled.

Directions and parking

Free parking is available. The entrance to the parking lot is located just south of the intersection of 34th and Market Streets. 

What to expect at the clinic

Your first appointment will be with a medical provider (either the physician or a nurse practitioner with the physician). By the third appointment, you will have met the rest of the team, and we will discuss options for your child’s plan of care. The plan will help your child meet long-term weight management goals.

We'll work with you to plan follow-up appointments that will meet the goals of your child and family. Most families follow up every two to four weeks or have at least six visits within a year. Children or teenagers with complicated medical issues or who need to lose a significant amount of weight may need more frequent follow-up.

You may see providers in some specialties — such as physical activity, psychology or social work — more often, based on the needs of your child.
