Office Visits

Oberlin Road Pediatrics offers a full array of services to help your child maintain good health. 

  • Well Child visits
    • Regular complete physical examinations are recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), and encouraged by our office for health maintenance, disease prevention, and parental guidance.   Such appointments should be scheduled several weeks to months in advance, especially in the spring and summer when school and camp physicals are in high demand. 
  • Sick visits for acute concerns
    • Regular scheduled office hours are from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm Monday thru Friday.   We try to examine any sick child the same day a family member calls, and we reserve appointments for urgent problems every day.   
    • Morning Walk-In Clinic  (Currently on hold through COVID season)
      • Established patients may walk in without an appointment from 7:00-8:30 am Monday thru Friday except Holidays.  These visits are for acute problems, such as ear pain, sore throats, vomiting, wheezing, etc.  Please do not walk in outside of these hours or on the weekends.  We will see as many patients as feasible during this time, and we will schedule the remaining patients for an acute visit during our regular office hours.
    • Evening and Weekend appointments
      • Just can’t wait until the next day, or midday appointments are impossible for you?   In addition to the early morning walk-in clinic, we also schedule visits for acutely sick children from 5-7 pm weekdays, as well as during Saturday and Sunday acute care clinic beginning at 10:00 am. These appointments are only for established patients.   All of these appointments are scheduled by speaking with the phone nurse on the day of the visit.  No walk-ins.
    • Telemedicine appointments are available for certain concerns.  These are scheduled through our phone nurses, and are billed to your insurance automatically.
