PineyWoods Pediatrics, is committed to providing convenient access & 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 the Spruce app provides a safe and easy way to reach us in non-life threatening situations, if you need help after-hours (evenings and weekends). We will help you get the care you need to avoid a costly visit to the emergency room. 

 Spruce is completely secure, HIPAA compliant and encrypted. While Spruce won’t replace all phone calls, we hope parents of our patients will appreciate the convenience & accessibility of the Spruce App.

PineyWoods Pediatrics is excited about opportunities to bring our patients the latest technology to improve how we provide communication and care, and we hope you enjoy this new service!
