Welcome to Pediatric Associates of Cincinnati, Inc. We want to provide the best medical home for your child. If we are open, you can always be seen the same day you call for any urgent issue, and if you are unsure whether your child needs to be seen, ask to talk with one of our experienced nurses.
We schedule all appointments in advance. We do not have “walk-in” visits. We do everything we can to run on-time. If you are running late, please call the office. We will work with you to reschedule the appointment. If you show up more than 10 minutes late without calling, we may not be able to reschedule the appointment for that day.
When we are not open, we take our own phone calls. If you call our office, you will be connected to our answering service who will text the doctor on call. We will call you back in 30 minutes or less to help you decide how to care for a sick child at home or where to bring your child if he or she needs to be seen right away. If we have not called back within 60 minutes, please call again.
For children two and under, please refer to our blue book for advice. For older children, consult our practice website or Facebook page and/or call the office. We see children once a year for well care from three to eighteen years of age and as needed for any acute issues or chronic illnesses. Our annual checkups count as sports physicals. We try to complete any forms at the time of your visit. If you need a form completed but forget at that time of the visit, you can always drop it by or fax it to us at a later date. Some standard forms we have here in the office. We do not routinely print shot records or growth charts, but would be happy to if you ask.
Please talk to us first before seeking specialty care as we can handle many issues ourselves and for others we can point you in the right direction including mental health services.
We do basic labs in our office. If a child needs an x-ray or laboratory test, we usually refer you to one of the Cincinnati Children’s neighborhood locations. If you want to access your child’s results you can sign up for that option at Children’s. We will call you with any lab or radiology results, but if you are waiting and have not been called, please call us.
We are always open to your feedback or suggestions.
