IBUPROFEN (Advil, Motrin, or other brand)

Do We Offer Telemedicine?
Yes! PineyWoods Pediatrics is committed to providing convenient access and quality care to keep kids healthy! We also know that coming into the office (or even calling us) isn’t always convenient. We are always looking for new ways to meet the needs of our patients and their families and Telemedicine can sometimes be an option, depending on the age of the patient and the type of visit. Please note, some insurances do not cover Telemedicine visits, so please be sure to clarify this when scheduling. Patients seeking Telemedicine services should complete a Telemedicine Consent Form prior to their visit. Please contact our office for details.
What Payment Types Are Accepted?
We will gladly file claims to your insurance company on your behalf. All co-pays, co-insurances, and deductibles are due at the time of service. Any prior balances should also be paid at this time. Late fees will be applied.
For our non-insurance patients, payment in full is expected at the time of service unless other arrangements have been made. For your convenience, we have established a number of payment options, including: cash payments, personal checks and credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express or Discover).
What Is Board Certification?
Certification by the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) consists of a doctor’s voluntary examination at the end of training and ongoing maintenance of this certification throughout a physician's career. This program of lifelong learning and improvement has one objective – to promote excellence in medical care for children, adolescents and young adults. Certification represents dedication to the highest level of professionalism in patient care. ABP certification provides a standard of excellence by which the public can select pediatricians and pediatric subspecialists.
