New Pediatric Patients
A message to our community (November 15, 2015):
We at Oberlin Road Pediatrics feel very fortunate to be able to provide care to our patients and their families. We are a thriving practice because of the trust you put in us. We have realized, however, that we have grown to such a point that we are finding it difficult to be able to get our current patients in for well care visits (physical exams) in a timely manner. As a result, we have come to the difficult decision to temporarily stop accepting new families who want to transfer to our practice. With this being said, we continue to accept newborns whose families choose us as their primary pediatrician while in the hospital.
We regret any inconvenience this may cause prospective families, but we feel strongly that this must be done in order for us to continue to provide the timely, top-notch care that our patients deserve.
Thank you for your understanding.
The Physicians and Staff of Oberlin Road Pediatrics
Expecting a newborn?
Click newborn for information about prenatal meet-and-greet classes and your baby's hospital stay. The physicians at our practice currently see babies who are born at Rex Hospital and WakeMed Raleigh. As of January 1, 2016, we will only be seeing babies at Rex Hospital and babies born at WakeMed Raleigh will be taken care of by the WakeMed Pediatric team.
Transferring from another practice with your child?
As of November 2015, we are unfortunately unable to accept the transfer of new patients into our practice. We expect this to be a temporary but needed change so that we may provide our current patients with timely well child care visits (physical exams). As soon as we are able to reopen our practice to new patients, we will post that information here.
Please download, print and complete our office forms prior to your first appointment. If this not possible, then please arrive 15 minutes earlier to complete these in our waiting room.
These additional forms ensure that future visits will go smoothly if your child comes in with someone other than the parent/guardian:
Consent By Proxy Decision Maker for Pediatric Care-- This allows your named family member/friend/nanny to bring the child in.
Consent by Proxy for Pediatric Care for my Underage Child-- This allows your teenager (ages 16 & 17) to be seen without a parent.
