Thank you for considering Kids Choice Pediatrics. We consider it an honor and privilege to see your kids and take care of your family’s needs. It is our goal at Kids Choice Pediatrics to provide the highest level of medical care to your child, regardless of insurance companies’ reimbursement policies. We believe that parents have a responsibility to comply with their physician’s recommended medical protocols. Our doctors follow the recommendation on immunizations from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the Advisory Committee of Immunization Practices (ACIP), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
We have developed policies that help make your child’s visit as convenient and enjoyable as possible. Please remember to arrive 10 minutes before your child’s appointment time for paperwork and insurance changes.
When you arrive for a well visit, please plan on being with us for at least a half hour. The nurse will bring your child to one of our private exam rooms. Your child’s height and weight will be checked at every physical check-up. Children under three years of age will have their head growth assessed. Children over three will have their blood pressure screened, hearing, vision and urine checked. Our doctors will examine your child and then, after all your questions have been answered, the nurse will return for any necessary tests or vaccines.
We accept credit cards, debit cards, checks, and cash. We are doing everything possible to hold down the cost of medical care. Payment is due at the time of service from the person who brings the child in for treatment. In a separation or divorce situation, it is the responsibility of the present care giver to get reimbursement from the person who is financially responsible for your child.
We bill insurance companies with whom we are participating providers. Deductibles and co-payments are due at the time of your visit. Please respond promptly to any claim inquiries sent to you by your insurance company. A prompt response will eliminate the balance reverting to your responsibility. For questions, call us at (972) 359-7600 and ask to speak to our billing department, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Pediatricians have privileges to medically manage newborns in the nurseries at the following hospitals:
Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Plano
Medical City, Plano
Baylor Scott & White Medical Center of Frisco
Baylor Scott & White--Centennial Medical Center
For your convenience, we have separate waiting areas for sick and well children. Each waiting area has plenty of seating and child friendly books and reading materials.
After discharge from the hospital, infants are seen within a week, preferably 2-3 days after going home. This visit concentrates on any issues from the birth time and expectations for feeding and weight gain and frequently involves one of our lactation counselor if the mom is breastfeeding. The next routine well-child exams occur at two weeks, one month, two months, four months, six months, nine months, and twelve months. Each visit helps us answer your questions, check for appropriate development, and update immunizations.
All our prescriptions are sent electronically through our Electronic Health Records System (EHR). Requests for prescription refills can be addressed to the advice nurse call line during office hours. Please allow till the end of the day for your prescription request to be completed. Medications cannot be refilled after hours.
We will gladly complete these forms for you. In order to do this, your child should have had a well-child visit within the past 12 months. Visits for an illness address a specific problem and are not ordinarily comprehensive enough for us to complete these forms. There is no charge for completing these forms, but please allow us 48 hours. They can be e-mailed or faxed, if that is more convenient.
We accept almost all major insurance plans and many of the smaller ones. It is always best to call your insurance company to determine if our physicians are in their network, and any co-pays and deductibles that are part of your insurance plan. Insurance companies' websites and online information about available providers are, as you may have discovered, frequently out of date.
