Appointments

At Pediatric Partners we see patients by appointment only. We strive to accommodate all of our sick patients with same day appointments. We do request that you provide us with at least 24 hours’ notice when canceling or rescheduling an appointment so that we may make that time available for another patient.  As a courtesy, our office will try to confirm your child/ children’s appointment at least 48 hours prior, but it is still the parent’s responsibility if an appointment that you scheduled is missed.

Missed Appointments

Our office will bill for any missed appointments not cancelled within 24 hours.  Three missed appointments with no notification are grounds for dismissal from Pediatric Partners of Stafford.

Waiting Rooms

Your child’s health is our number one priority and children transfer illnesses quickly.  As a result we have 2 waiting rooms. One is designated to those that are visiting for their yearly check up and physicals. The other is for those little ones that have the sniffles.

“We transferred to this office from another and were so glad we did! The staff here are wonderful, especially Dr Loving! Everyone that we encounter from the front desk staff to the nursing staff to the Drs are always pleasant, approachable, professional, thorough and caring.

“This is a great office! I have been taking my daughter here since we moved back in 2009, and now have a newborn that also goes. We love all the docs! They take their time and really care about their patients. The rest of the staff is also great! Always professional! The waiting area is a typical doc waiting room and has children’s toys and books, plus movies for them to watch. Each patient room is also decorated in different themes. Very kid friendly!”
