A message to our community (as of 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 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. Babies born at other hospitals will be taken care of by the hospital newborn team and will meet us after discharge from the hospital.
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, other than older children that join with a newborn sibling.
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.
- Prior to a newborn's first visit: Newborn first visit packet(11 pages). Please read the Notice of Privacy Practices .
- Prior to a transferring sibling's first visit: New Patient First Visit Packet (10 pages). Please read the Notice of Privacy Practices .
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.
