- These are for quick sick visits

- For children over 2 months of age

- There is a limit to the number of patients a physician is able to treat during this time so arrive early

- You may have to wait to see the physician if it is a busy walk-in day.  The receptionist will be able to let you know approximately how long the wait will be so you can decide if you want to wait or schedule an appointment at a more convenient time

- If your child's symptoms are not appropriate for a walk-in sick visit we will triage your child and work them in the schedule.  If you are not sure if it is appropriate for a walk-in visit please call ahead so we don't have to bring your child back later for an appointment

- The busiest walk-in day/time is Monday morning

Why did you bill me for a physical and a sick visit?

Well Child Exam Policy

Our office recommends that every child has an annual well child exam (aka physical or preventative visit).  During a well child exam the doctor will do a complete physical examination. The doctor will check the child’s development to make sure they are meeting key milestones and catch emerging health problems.  It includes a gender and age appropriate history, counseling, anticipatory guidance, risk factor reduction interventions and ordering laboratory and diagnostic procedures.  The annual well child exam is an important time for communication about sleep, nutrition, safety, and other topics related to growth and development.  These visits are also a good time to make sure that your child is up to date with their immunization schedule.  Without these regular visits, your pediatrician might not catch a problem until it is too late to treat effectively. 

We encourage parents to bring their questions regarding their child’s development and medical milestones to their child’s physical exam.  However, if your child is sick or experiencing a significant or chronic medical issue the physical exam is not the place to handle those concerns.  Our office’s policy is that a separate problem focused appointment should be scheduled for those medical issues.

Sometimes, during the course of the physical exam, the physician finds a significant medical issue and the physician must address the issue.  When this happens the physician will determine the best course of treatment based on one of 2 options:

One:  We will complete both the well child exam and treat the medical issue at the same time.  We will charge for both services and your insurance company will most likely require you to pay a copay and/or deductible amount.

Two:  If the child is too sick, or the chronic condition is too significant to complete during the well child check we will treat the medical issue and bring the child back for the well child check.

We do our best to treat most straightforward medical condition at the time of the well child exam as this will save the parent time and money and only requires the child to undergo one exam.  If you prefer to come back for a second appointment please let the physician know in advance.

Patient-Centered Medical Home

Hand In Hand Pediatrics is excited to announce that The National Committee for QualityAssurance (NCQA) announced that Hand In Hand Pediatrics has received Recognition from the Physician Practice Connections—Patient-Centered Medical Home (PPC-PCMH) program for using evidence-based, patient-centered processes that focus on highly coordinatedcare and long-term participative relationships. Both our Dublin and Marysville offices wererecognized as a Patient-Centered Medical Homes!
The Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) is a promising model of health care delivery that aims to improve the quality and efficiency of care. PPC-PCMH identifies practices that promote partnerships between individual patients and their personal clinicians, instead of treating patient care as the sum of several episodic office visits. Each patient's care is tended to by clinician-led care teams, who provide for all the patient's health care needs and coordinate treatments across the health care system. Medical home clinicians demonstrate the benchmarks of patient-centered care, including open scheduling, expanded hours and appropriate use of proven health information systems. Early evaluations of the PPC-PCMH have shown promising results in improving care quality and lowering costs by increasing access to more efficient, more coordinated care. By avoiding unnecessary hospitalizations and emergency room visits, these early results are producing savings for payers, purchasers and patients.
“The patient-centered medical home promises to improve health and health care,” said NCQA President Margaret E. O'Kane. “The active, ongoing relationship between a patient and aclinician in medical homes fosters an all-too-rare goal in care: staying healthy and preventing illness in the first place. PPC-PCMH Recognition shows that Hand In Hand Pediatrics has tools, systems and resources to provide its patients with the right care at the right time.” 
To receive recognition, which is valid for three years, Hand In Hand Pediatrics demonstrated the ability to meet the program's key elements embodying characteristics of the medical home. The standards are aligned with the joint principles of the Patient-Centered Medical Home established with the American College of Physicians, the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Osteopathic Association.
Hand In Hand Pediatrics met key program components in the following areas:
  • Written standards for patient access and enhanced communications
  • Appropriate use of charting tools to track patients and organize clinical information
  • Responsive care management techniques with an emphasis on preventive care
  • Adaptation to patient's cultural and linguistic needs
  • Use of information technology for prescriptions and care management
  • Use of evidence-based guidelines to treat chronic conditions
  • Systematic tracking of referrals and test results
  • Measurement and reporting of clinical and service performance
