We appreciate the trust that you have given Children's Choice Pediatrics with the health and well being of your child. Of all the relationships that exist in the medical field, the bond that exists between a parent/child and their pediatrician is among the most unique and special. The goal of our practice is to deliver highly personalized medical care to your family.
Children's Choice Pediatrics' patient population will be limited to allow us to become familiar with each child that we are entrusted. There will be prolonged time of access to your physician during visits. We welcome lists of questions, articles of interest, or any areas of concern you may wish to discuss during your appointment. We want all of your questions and concerns addressed so that you can provide the best environment in which to rear your child.
Our staff has had years of experience in practicing the art of pediatrics, both in caring for other's children and in rearing our own children. We have all been scared and concerned when our child has become ill, and we want to do whatever we can to make these times more bearable for you. Our goal is to help empower each parent so that these uncomfortable feelings can be eliminated or minimized.
With our prolonged face to face time with our patients and their families, we will be able to spend more time educating you about childhood illness and preventative healthcare. Our experienced staff will be able to assist you with routine (non-emergent) healthcare questions during routine office hours via telephone. If a question should require the immediate attention of one of our physicians, one will be consulted and your question answered in the timeliest of fashions.
If you should have a question or concern that arises after our office has closed, our on call physician can be easily contacted. We do not share after hours call with any other physicians in the Columbia area so you will receive a return call from one of our doctors. Since your child's entire medical record is computerized, the on call doctor has complete and secure access to your child's medical history that will enable us to better serve you. We kindly ask that all after hours calls be reserved for true medical emergencies (examples of which follow) or situations that can not wait until our office opens the next business day.
