Like some of our patients, we too are experiencing growing pains! We have temporarily adjusted our hours while we train newly hired staff. We appreciate your patience during this time of growth. We have modified our hours to accommodate sick visits at the end of the day. Please call before 4:30 to schedule appointments.
Confirming appointments with your smartphone:
We are now using a smartphone app called Talksoft as another way to confirm appointments. Click here for a quick look at the app and download it to your phone today!
Friday is Dress Down Day:
On Fridays we dress down for charity. We each pay $5 to wear jeans. Over the years we have raised money for: Huntington's Disease, Autism, the Shepherd's Home, Salvation Army, and many others.
Camp and Sports Forms.
If you are requesting forms for your children, please allow us 48 hours to complete these.
FSA/HSA Reimbursable over-the-counter medication.
You have the right to purchase any over the counter medications for your children; however, please be aware that the providers at Penfield Pediatrics will not write prescriptions for any over the counter medications that we have not recommended for our patients. If your child is seen in the office and your provider recommends an over the counter medication, we will write a prescription if you request it. If your child takes an over the counter medication for health maintenance as recommended by your provider, we will write a prescription if you request it. Penfield Pediatrics reserves the right to charge a $5.00 fee per prescription written for multiple, frequent requests. We will require 48 hours to generate prescriptions or complete required forms from your Flexible Spending Plan. We encourage you to communicate with your health insurance carrier and your Flexible Spending plan to become aware of the over the counter medications that are reimbursable under your plan. Please contact our office directly with requests.
Vitamin D Drops.
It is recommended that babies receive 400 units of Vitamin D each day. We have recently acquired Baby D Drops in the office. This product provides your baby with the daily requirement in a single drop. For nursing Moms, you can simply place a drop on the nipple and your baby will ingest this important vitamin by simply sucking as usual. For babies eating solids, you can place a drop on the food. You can get a 3 year supply of Baby D drops for $10.00 in the office. Please ask for more information when you are in for your well baby check.
