Yes, we are accepting new patients by referral only. We are currently only accepting infants, children and adolescents with medical, developmental or mental health conditions that require a pediatrician for care. Referrals for healthy children, including healthy newborns, will be declined. We continue to provide consultations on an as needed basis. If your child requires pediatric consultation or has a serious medical, developmental or mental health condition that requires ongoing pediatric care, please ask your current physician to fax a referral for your child to 365-509-2154.
As of September 1 2020, our office is accepting a very limited number of healthy newborns for ongoing pediatric care, based on physician availability. We do not register babies before their birth. If your newborn was admitted to the NICU and requires ongoing pediatric care after discharge or has a serious medical condition that requires a pediatrician for follow up, please ask your child’s current physician to fax a referral to 365-509-2154.
