We are currently trying to avoid sick and well patients in the office at the same time. The following guild-lines will be put in place until further notice. (we anticipate through at least mid April)

Well visits – babies under 1 year of age – will be scheduled at 9am only.

All other age well visits and non-contagious appointments – will be scheduled between 1:30pm and 3:30pm. Any well visit that is scheduled we do ask that you call the office once you arrive, we will direct you to a different entrance to minimize your exposure while in the office.

All other appointments times will be reserved for sick appointments.

We have started calling the appointments affected by this schedule change – if you currently have an appointment during these times that we will reach out to you if needed.

We are scheduling appointments currently via virtual visits through Doxy.me. If you currently have an appointment that qualifies for this type of visit we will call you to arrange a virtual visit. There is no need to download any program or app, it is done directly from a cell phone camera or desktop computer with a camera.

Edgewood Center Pediatrics offers sports physicals to existing patients that have had a well visit in our office within the last year and require an exam for sports on or after April 15th of the previous school year.

If your child’s well visit was on or after April 15th, 2019 a form can be filled out without an appointment.

If your child’s well visit was before April 15th, 2019 and the form(s) require exam to be on or after April 15th of the previous school year you may require a sports physical appointment.

Sports physicals are NOT a complete well exam and do not replace a yearly well visit!

Sport physical appointments are only for filling out required forms.  The exam will include height, weight, blood pressure, heart check, hernia exam (males) and vision exam.  Growth and development/disease management will not be discussed nor will medications be refilled.

If additional testing/procedures are required, an office visit may be billed to your insurance and all  co-pays will be due at time of service.  This will be in addition to the cost of the sports physical!

Sports physicals will be $45 due at the time of service and insurance cannot be billed!
