the in-office wait time, we would like for each client to call for an
immunization appointment with the following information: the name of
the insurance company, prior authorization phone number, and the card
holder’s account number. Our office will contact the insurance company
in advance of the scheduled appointment. Phone number: 620-886-3294 or
