Planning Your Visit

There are a few important things to prepare before you arrive for your child's visit.  Please see the directional signs outside the building to lead you to the appropriate location of your visit.  Port is divided into a well and a sick side.  Starboard is for well visits only.  Unsure where your visit is? Please call our administrative staff for assistance at 252-364-8790.  

Click on any of the well child visits below to learn more about what you can expect during your child's visit as well as the necessary paperwork to complete prior to your arrival.  Not having the completed paperwork could delay your appointment time.

Sick visits will depend on the nature of the illness. Please bring necessary insurance and billing information. Be prepared to answer a short questionnaire about the illness so we can treat your child as quickly and as effectively as possible.

ADHD visits require Vanderbilt forms to be completed prior to your appointment.  At least one parent AND one teacher Vanderbilt form is needed. Vanderbilt forms can be printed from our website.  Please give them to your child's teacher well enough in advance for the form(s) to be completed prior to your appointment.  You may bring the forms with you or have the school fax the forms to our office at 252-364-8794.  A permission to exchange information form is required if forms are faxed to directly to Pirate Pediatrics.  Please arrive to the appointment with the names and dosages of your child's medications. Please see ADHD policy.

Asthma visits are scheduled to ensure your child is closely monitored every 3-6 months.  Please arrive to the appointment with the names and dosages of your child's medications. Please complete the Asthma Control Test and bring with you to your appointment.  

Congratulations to expecting parents! We would be happy to meet you and show you around our office. Please call the office to schedule a prenatal consult. Be prepared to answer questions about any complications you may have had during pregnancy, medications, your medical history, etc. Please complete the Prenatal Consult Form located under the Forms & Documents tab and bring with you.
