WE ARE HERE TO SAFELY TAKE CARE OF YOU! Edgewood Center Pediatrics is open and dedicated to keeping our patients and staff safe and healthy. Your child’s health remains most important to us. We are aware many parents are concerned with bringing their children to a medical office. We understand! In addition to following best practices for patient safety, we are doing additional cleaning of each room between patients and throughout the office. The staff is all wearing masks and other protective equipment when necessary. In addition to in-office appointments, we have been successfully utilizing virtual visits for certain types of non-well visit exams. Should you have any concerns, call us.

Our providers, along with the American Academy of Pediatrics are strongly encouraging keeping up-to-date with well exams and vaccines. We continue to have a provider on-call for urgent matters any time the office is closed.

The office is currently open from 9am until 7pm Monday through Thursday, 9am – 5pm on Friday and 9am – 12pm on Saturday. The office may occasionally close early depending on patient volume.

We want to thank our patients and staff for your continued dedication and understanding as we make adjustments to care for our patients. We are here for you when you need us and appreciate you for being the best part of the Edgewood family!

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, 2020 a form can be filled out without an appointment.

If your child’s well visit was before April 15th, 2020 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!
