Children, especially younger ones, are sometimes anxious or nervous when coming to a new doctor’s office. We find that many children do better when they know what to expect; therefore, try to prepare your child for their first visit with us by telling them that they will NOT NEED ANY SHOTS as part of the appointment.

Drs. Maddern or Simonsen will examine every child seen in our office. Some of our pediatric staff may also assist them as necessary.

Thank you for scheduling a visit with Dr. Simonsen and Dr. Maddern. We recently upgraded to an electronic check-in system, Phreesia. You will be receiving an e-mail/text message with a link to complete your registration. This will save you time and eliminate the need for you to complete the majority of paperwork when you arrive for your appointment.

We strongly encourage you to review our Patient Education section which contains links to some of the frequent problems we evaluate and treat.


If surgery is scheduled, we will ask you to pay 100% of any outstanding deductible prior to surgery. You will be responsible for the balance 3 months after surgery but monthly payments must be made toward the balance to keep your account current. Any refunds due to you will be sent 7-10 days after you have incurred the refund.
