Get to Know Children’s Medical Center
These questions are frequently asked by patient families as they decide if Children’s Medical Center is a good fit for their children’s and family’s needs. We encourage you to read them and to call our New Patient Coordinator at 303-830-7337, Option 2 to learn more or get started as a new family in our practice.
Do you have any subspecialties?
All of our pediatricians are board-certified in pediatrics. This means all of our physicians have significant training in just pediatrics and are equipped to handle a wide range of common pediatric illnesses as well as routine well care. We do not have any subspecialists in the office but refer to both Children’s Hospital of Colorado and Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children subspecialists when necessary. We also do not have any advanced practice providers (PAs and NPs). You will see a pediatrician at every visit.
Do you have experience caring for patients with special needs?
Each of our physicians has experience caring for children with special healthcare needs. This includes prematurity, developmental delays, autism, learning disabilities and other medical conditions. We also collaborate with subspecialists when needed in caring for our special needs patients.
Do you have breast feeding support?
Yes, we have a lactation nurse in the office that can come into visits if our breast feeding mothers need some extra support.
Do you have sick and well waiting areas?
Yes, we have separate areas for sick and well in the waiting room.
Do you have weekend or evening hours?
Yes, we are open on Saturday mornings for same day sick visit appointments. We also always have a triage nurse available to help with any questions or concerns. During business hours those triage nurses are in our office, and through Children’s Hospital of Colorado when we are closed. There is also a pediatrician always on call as well.
Would we see only one physician or many different physicians in the office?
We pride ourselves on making our office your child’s medical home. To do that we encourage families to pick one pediatrician as their primary provider who will know your child and family best. We strive to schedule you with your primary physician first, but our top priority is getting you an appointment quickly when your child is sick and at a time that is convenient for your schedule, so there are situations when it makes more sense to see one of the other pediatricians in the office.
Do you schedule same day sick visits?
Yes. We are generally able to schedule sick visits on the day that you call.
What type of procedures can you do in the office?
Some of the procedures we can do in the office include attending to minor wounds, reducing Nursemaid’s elbows, draining small abscesses, irrigating ear wax, removing nasal and ear foreign bodies, performing urinary catheterizations, and freezing warts.
What is your philosophy on antibiotics?
We follow the AAP’s stance on antibiotic stewardship. Our goal is to prevent overuse of antibiotics, which contributes to antibiotic resistance. Antibiotics are used when necessary and avoided when possible.
What is your philosophy on vaccines?
Children’s Medical Center recommends following the CDC vaccine schedule.
What hospitals are you affiliated with?
We round on newborns at both Rose Medical Center and St. Joseph Hospital. We are also on staff at Children’s Hospital of Colorado.
We accept most insurance. However, before your first visit, please check with our office to make sure we are a participating provider. Visit our page on Exchange Plans we participate with.
For your convenience, many of our forms are available to download and complete before your office visit. New Patient forms are listed in the Patient Information Section. Parents who come in with these forms completed generally are able to reduce time in the waiting room and in the office.
