Within the division of General Pediatrics our experienced and knowledgeable specialists provide a variety of services for infants, children, and adolescents to care for your child’s general pediatric needs.

Scheduling routine checkups is an important part of keeping children healthy. By maintaining a regular checkup schedule, we can help prevent illness, detect hidden problems and monitor your child's growth and development throughout childhood and the teen years.

If we find your child needs a pediatric specialist, our team can refer your child to full array of sub-specialists.

Comprehensive Care

Appointments

Each of our pediatricians schedules appointments two to four half-days per week; one of the sessions may be in the evening. Please schedule your child’s check-ups and advance appointments with your primary care pediatrician. If your child is ill or needs to be seen at a time when your pediatrician is unavailable because of obligations elsewhere, we offer a couple of options:

  1. Our “same-day” clinic is available to see your ill child on the day you call in. This clinic involves trainees who are supervised by Faculty pediatricians who will also examine your child. Our trainees greatly benefit from this experience.
  2. Alternatively you can schedule your child to see another Faculty Pediatrician if your child has an urgent medical condition.

Scheduling

Our clinic hours are:

Monday-Thursday 8:30 am - 8:00 pm
Friday 8:30 am - 5:00 pm

Please call between 8:00am- 5:00pm to schedule appointments and please try to call 6-8 weeks in advance to schedule well child visits. When you call for an appointment, you will be asked for your child’s insurance information, so please have your child’s insurance information handy when you call for an appointment.

Plan to arrive at the University about 15 minutes prior to your child’s scheduled appointment time to allow for parking and check-in.

Please be sure that we have your current daytime and evening telephone numbers, as well as your current address, so that we can contact you for appointment reminders, lab test results, etc. Also, please give us your email address to enable us to contact you for feedback on your visits (regular email should not be used formedical communications unless it's through a secure email path).

MyChart

MyChart® allows online access to your child's immunization records, labs, and other results, as well as appointment requests and communication with your providers. Ask our front desk staff about signing up. Except in special circumstances (such as significant mental or developmental disability), after a child's 12th birthday parental access will be limited to appointments and immunization records.

Telephone Calls

Our outstanding pediatric nurses are available during clinic hours to answer questions about your child’s health, to help with appointments, or to coordinatecommunications between you and your child’s pediatrician. For urgent problems after hours, contact the pediatrician on call at (801) 581-2205.

When calling for a prescription refill, please have your pharmacy’s number and the prescription details ready. When calling about a referral. It is best to see your pediatrician to be sure the referral is needed and that your child is referred to the best service.
