The History of the Practice
Oberlin Road Pediatrics is proud to be the oldest Pediatric practice in Raleigh. The practice was started in 1955 by Dr. McGinniss in an office at the corner of Oberlin and Fairview Roads. In 1961, the office moved to its current location and had three providers: Drs. McGinnis, Pugh and Middleton.
As the community around Oberlin Road Pediatrics has grown, so too has the practice. In 2011, we completed an addition to our office space that allowed us to add space for another physician and also gives us room for our administrative staff.
While much has changed over the years, one thing remains constant at Oberlin Road Pediatrics. The patients at our office receive top quality medical care in a comfortable, nurturing environment just as they did when the practice first opened its doors. Perhaps that is why we have so many second and third generation families who trust us to provide them medical care.
The misson of Oberlin Road pediatrics is to improve and sustain the health and general well being of our community's children by providing skilled, compassionate and timely health care. We care for each child as the individual he or she is, and in our corporate decisions, we are committed to do what is in the best interest of each child and his/her family and allow this principle to guide the business direction of our practice.
Your family's Medical Home
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) believes that "the medical care of infants, children and adolescents ideally should be accessible, continuous, comprehensive, family centered, coordinated, compassionate,and culturally effective." This goal is the crux of the concept of a Medical Home for every child.
One important part of having a good Medical Home is identifying a Primary Care Physician, who will be the physician that can provide you with the most continuity of care. We will prioritize that physician when scheduling appointments for your child. Please share with us your preferences when we are making appointments.
Although the idea of a Medical Home was originally championed to benefit children with chronic and complex medical needs, we now know that it benefits all children, including decreased emergency department visits, and increasing health-promoting visits.
Here are some wonderful links that discuss the importance of establishing a medical home:
National Center for Medical Home Implementation-- AAP's site for how to partner with your physician
A Medical Home where Everybody Knows Your Name-- Healthy Children.org's description of using the Medical Home concept to optimize your child's care.
Insurance and Billing
Payment is due at the time service is rendered. ORP accepts most insurance companies. Please bring all health insurance information with you to each visit, and update us if your company or policy changes.
Health insurance is designed to help you meet the cost of medical services, but the responsibility of the payment is yours. Your insurance contract defines to what extent the company can reimburse you. Regardless, the client is ultimately responsible for settling his/her account and this should be done as promptly as possible. Billing is done on-site, and we encourage you to call with questions or concerns.
As of September 1, 2012, we cannot offer state vaccines to any patient with private insurance. Therefore, it is the parent/patient's responsibility to verify coverage before immunizations are given. If your insurance company denies payment for any vaccine, the responsibility of the payment is yours.
Please note that we are unable to accept any NEW PATIENTS covered by MEDICAID or HEALTHCHOICE at this time.
