Partnership With Primary Care Physicians
PedsXpress is committed to complementing a patient’s primary care physician. We offer a convenient and affordable alternative to the Emergency Room for patients who need to be seen when their pediatrician’s office is closed, or for services that their physician may not provide.
We view our relationship with primary care physicians as a partnership, working to provide the best care possible. To that end, PedsXpress:
- Sends an electronic copy of the patient’s medical record to the primary care physician
- Instructs the patient to follow up with their primary care provider
- Does not offer wellness visits or routine immunizations
