Office Policies

Sick Appointments: Please call to schedule an appointment. We will try to see your child the same day you call our office. If no appointments are available for that day and your child is sick, we will make every effort for your child to be seen as soon as possible.

Questions:  You may call our office Monday thru Friday for any questions regarding your child. If you leave a message on the voicemail your call will be returned that same day.

After Hour Calls:  Cleburne Pediatrics is on call 24 hours a day for our patients. If a true emergency exists call 911 or proceed to the nearest emergency room for further care. If you wish to consult Dr. Sharma after office hours about your sick child, please call the office phone number and leave a voicemail for him to call you back.

Promptness and Late Policy:   Cleburne Pediatrics makes every effort to see your child promptly and limit your wait time. If you know you will be late for an appointment, please let the office know before your arrival. This helps with scheduling other appointments. If you are more than 15 minutes late for your appointment, you will be seen as a work in or you may be asked to reschedule your appointment.
