A minor is a person under the age of 18 who has never been married and never been declared an adult by a court. Generally, minors do not have the legal capacity to consent to medical treatment.
In order for us to treat a minor, we must have a written consent from a parent or legal guardian, including a statement as to the nature of the medical treatment to be given on a specific day.
Minors age 17 and under MUST be accompanied by an adult (18yrs old and older).
With the written consent, we will perform the following:
- Other testing
- Noninvasive procedures
We will not perform:

Motor Vehicle Accidents (MVA)
We do not file charges for MVA insurance policies. All charges for services rendered due to a MVA are payable in full at the time of your visit. You will need to submit your charges and seek reimbursement from the MVA insurance company. Unless we can verify that your personal insurance plan will pay for the services as they would pay any other illness and stating under no circumstances they will ask us to repay any claims paid on behalf of their insured for treatment related to the MVA, i.e. no recoupment or deferred payment. This statement will need to be in written format from your personal insurance company. You will need to submit your charges and seek reimbursement from the MVA insurance company.
