Frequently Asked Questions
About Our Pediatricians
Q: What is a pediatrician?
A: A Pediatrician is a physician who has a special interest and acquired knowledge of the health needs of infants, children and adolescents by virtue of extensive training in these areas after completion of formal medical education. They are specialists in diagnosing and treating diseases and disorders of childhood. All of our physicians are board-certified by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Q: How do I choose a physician?
A:Not all doctors are alike. A child’s health care needs differ from those of an adult, both medically and emotionally. Below are some helpful hints in selecting a doctor:
- Don’t wait until your child is sick or needs a check up — you don’t want your decision to be rushed unnecessarily. Remember, you are choosing the doctor who helps prevent and manage your child’s health problems from infancy to young adulthood.
- Talk to other people about who they know and would recommend. Those you might consider asking could be friends, neighbors, co-workers and if you’re moving, your current physician.
- Ask these people questions such as:
Does the doctor seem to like your child and talk with them?
Do their children like the doctor/clinic?
Do you feel as though your questions are answered?
Do you find it easy to get an appointment when you need one?
- Check the provider directory for your health plan to determine whether the clinic/doctor you want to go to is a participating provider. You can also call the clinic to check this as well.
- Consider visiting the clinic you would like to establish a relationship with.
Q: Are you accepting new patients?
A: Yes, we are accepting new patients. We welcome children of all ages — from newborns to those in young adulthood.
Q: Is there a doctor available 24 hours a day?
A: Yes, our telephones are answered 24 hours a day. After regular business hours, our phones are answered by the Call Service. A clinic physician is always on-call and available for consultation if needed.
Q: Do you take walk-ins?
A: We prefer a prior appointment but we will accommodate walk-ins as much as possible, specially for sick visits. Please call and talk to our staff before coming.
Q: What are your office hours?
A: Monday thru Friday: 8:00am to 5:00pm
Q: How do I get my lab results?
A: Depending on the type of lab test ordered, the results may not be available for 5-7 days. Our physicians will always call with lab results that are considered abnormal or require further follow-up. Other lab results will be conveyed via mail or phone within one week.
Q: How do I get my prescription refilled?
A: You should begin by calling your pharmacy. The pharmacy will contact our office for the necessary authorization. You should allow 72 hours for prescription refill requests.
Q: Can I get an antibiotic prescribed over the phone without being seen first?
A: No. We do not believe it is in the best interest of either the patient or the clinic to prescribe medications over the telephone without first being examined by a clinic physician for the issue at hand.
Q: Will I be billed for phone care?
A: Your routine calls to the office, advice given by our support staff and routine calls handled by our physicians will NOT be billed. However, phone calls which replace an office visit may be billed. This generally means phone advice that involves prolonged discussions or complicated patient management. All billing will go through your insurance. Coverage for these services varies per insurance company. Some insurance companies are charging a co-pay for these calls. Again, only discussions or advice that are in place of an office visit will be billed and ONLY calls involving a physician. At Pediatric Physicians, we feel our availability is one of our strengths. It is very important to us to continue to be accessible by phone.
Q: How far in advance should I call to make an appointment for a physical exam?
A: We recommend that parents call at least 4-6 weeks in advance for arranging a complete physical exam to get their preferred date and time. For well-child visits that are often only months apart, we suggest that parents schedule their child’s future exams before leaving the office.
Q: Can I schedule a visit with a doctor before my baby is born?
A: Certainly. In fact, we encourage expectant parents to consult with us prior to the birth of their child. By doing so, you can begin establishing a relationship with your child’s pediatrician before their birth and get some initial questions answered. There is no fee to the parents for a consultation prior to delivery. Just give us a call!
Q: What do I need to bring for my first visit?
A: There are several items that we suggest people bring to their first visit. These include the following:
- old medical records (especially immunization records)
- list of medications
- insurance card
- any co-pay amounts due
Q: Do I have to pay my co-pay at the time of service?
A: Yes, co-pays are due at the time of service. In fact, we are obligated by our contractual relationship with the insurers to collect co-pays.
Q:What insurances do you accept?
A: Pediatric Physicians participate in most of the local and national health plans and all major managed care companies health plans. Please call our office to confirm our participation in your insurance plan. We file claims electronically to your primary insurance company.
Q: If I have a question about a bill, whom should I call?
A: Any questions you may have about your bill should be directed to our business office.
Q: You are my “primary clinic,” do I need to get a referral to go see a specialist?
A:As your primary care clinic we are responsible for delivering and coordinating all of your health care needs. Each insurance policy can be unique on their referral requirements. After a physician at Pediatric Physicians has referred you to a specialist, please check with our referral coordinator before going to see a specialist. We will refer you to a specialist in the network affiliated with your health plan.
Q: What should I do if my child gets sick when we’re out of town?
A: Call Pediatric Physicians. Our phones are answered 24 hours a day either by our clinic staff or by the Call service. If you are seen by an urgent care clinic or in an emergency room, please contact our referral coordinator the next business day.
Q: What do I do when my child reaches college age?
A: We continue to care for a number of college age adults when home from school, but as your child reaches adulthood we suggest that they begin seeking a physician that can meet their “adult” medical needs. The area of medicine that specializes in adult health care is called Internal Medicine. It is important to contact your insurance company to make sure that the physician you choose is a provider with your insurance company.
REQUESTING MEDICAL RECORDS
Q: How can I get copies of my child’s medical records?
A: Copies of medical records are available from Pediatric Physicians Medical Records Department. We take every precaution to protect the rights and privacy of our patients. To ensure the privacy of patients and their families and to comply with federal regulations, parents or guardians must sign an Authorization to Release Medical Records form or/and an Authorization to Obtain Medical Records form. If the patient is 18 years or older, they must sign the form themselves. Processing of the request can take up to five working days.
The department releases copies of medical records only. Pediatric Physicians will not make copies of records from other medical centers. These records must be requested from the originating facility. You may contact our office with any questions or concerns.
If you have any question regarding your child’s health, we encourage you to schedule an appointment or phone consultation with one of our pediatricians or visit our office. We are pleased to offer all types of services for the needs of your family.

From Happy Parents
Love Dr. Harpavat!! She is the most wonderful doctor for my kids. I’ve been with her for 7 years. All 4 of my kids see her and she knows and remembers a lot about each child. She has a genuine concern for the whole family. Her knowledge, love, and bedside manner is hard to find these days. Even her busiest days she will spend the time that is needed.
Dr. Dhoot is one of the best doctors we have come across. He checks so thoroughly, never in a hurry and his diagnoses is very accurate. He takes time to call back himself even in off hours. We are so glad our two kids are under his medical care.
Thank you Dr. Dhoot.
