Your child can be seen at Omega Pediatrics by going to the appointments page and booking an appointment. The appointment window accepts patient’s information including insurance name and member ID, email and phone number. You will also be able to enter the reason for the visit and pick your preferred time.
If you want to transfer your records from a different practice to Omega Pediatrics, you will need to fill out a request for transfer of records form at our office or online and we will then request that information from your child’s clinic by sending it to them via fax.
We offer appointments from 11 am through 8.45 pm on weekdays, Monday to Friday depending on availability. We also do offer Telemedicine appointments depending on the clinician availability.
Our patients are usually able to get in within 48 to 72 hours depending on the time of the year. We recommend scheduling online on our website at https://www.omegapediatrics.com/book/. There the available appointments are accessible and parents are able to pick what date and time works best for them. Omega Pediatrics is the only local pediatrician that is open up to 9 PM week days.
We accept walk-ins however we recommend patients pre-registering online to reduce wait times in the office. Preference will be given to those who already have appointments and walk-ins will be seen on a first come first served basis if there is a gap in the schedule.
