Our Mission

Our practice is working together to build life-long relationships between our staff and our patients by consistently providing our patients with compassion, excellence and value. To fulfill this mission, we are committed to:

  • Improving the lives of the children we serve by providing quality care in a child-centered environment.
  • Listening to our young patients and their families who we are privileged to serve.
  • Guiding our patients along a path of optimal health and wellness.

Next Steps

  • Here you will find our New Patient Forms. Feel free to print and complete them at home to save time at your first visit.
  • Complete a Medical Record Release Form and submit it to your previous pediatrician’s office. This is especially important for children with any significant past medical problems, including but not limited to ADHD, asthma, behavioral or psychiatric concerns, growth delays, any specialist visits, abnormal labs, etc.
  • Call your insurance company to verify that one of your providers is listed, to change your child’s Primary Care Provider (PCP) to Decatur Pediactric if necessary. See our list of Contracted Insurance Plans; if your plan is not on that list, we are always happy to see you out-of-network or on a cash-pay basis.
  • If moving from out of state, please fax our office your child’s immunization records as soon as you can. Please note, we will require this prior to scheduling a well-child check up
  • Register for our "My Childs Chart"
  • Complete CHADIS prior to any well exam and behavioral visit
