Your child is more than just a chart. Your family is more than just a name. Even in a big city like Boca Raton, small town care still exists. Do you remember the bygone days of a house call pediatrician showing up at your home? While house calls and small town care seem like a thing of the past, we’re really over-the-moon to bring this concept back, because we believe children and their health deserve more than “one size fits all” care.
When you show up for a well check at Boca VIPediatrics, chances are, you’re the only family there. We don’t like to expose healthy kids to waiting room germs, and we really don’t like making anyone wait. That’s because at our family owned & operated small practice, we limit the number of patients or “VIPs” as we like to call them, in each age category.
When you call, there’s no recording. It’s a real live voice on the other end of the phone who knows who you are, who your child is, and is ready to help. When something urgent comes up and you need to reach the doctor, you call him on his cell phone, 24/7. Really. What’s urgent to you, is urgent to us. If you have a question about a rash, cough, bump, or bruise, you text or email a photo right to the pediatrician. You don’t have to come in to the office if it’s an easy diagnosis. For example, when your child gets pink eye, you email a pic, we call in the drops, and you go about your day. A bad cough? Send us a video. It’s that simple.
Oh, and house calls? Those happen too. For a newborn visit, we like our new friends to stay in the safest and most comfortable place possible…their own home. So we come to you for that check-up. If you need something after-hours, we always have your back. Whether it’s an urgent after-hours house call, or an after-hours office opening, we’ll do what it takes to get your child better, faster.
But perhaps best of all, we believe in listening and working with parents. Parenting is the toughest job there is, hands down. That’s why we block out up to an hour for well checks, go through everything from sleep, to behavior, to eating, and everything in between so we can work with you to make sure your child is growing as happy and healthy as possible.
We’re not fans of you googling or crowdsourcing important health concerns or questions about your most precious cargo, so we make ourselves available 24/7 in order to email or text your pediatrician for information.
So, believe it, small town pediatric care DOES exist and a house call pediatrician is no longer a thing of the past. Our family is very grateful for the opportunity and privilege to care for yours at Boca VIPediatrics! Contact us to learn more.
