Welcome to BaptistPedsJax.com! At Baptist Pediatrics, our mission is to partner with you to provide quality health care for your child, from birth through adolescence. As advocates for your child’s health and wellbeing, we believe in the importance of preventive health care.
Infants, children and teens
We provide comprehensive well care for your child, beginning with newborn care. Each visit follows national guidelines for scheduling visits, physical examinations, providing guidance on stages of growth and development, and administering immunizations. We gladly complete all school, sports, camp and daycare forms during these visits.
Sick visits vs. well visits
Timely appointments for children who are ill are scheduled separately from well visits. We separate types of appointments by day so sick children are not mixed with well children.
Here for you 24/7
Our office hours are 9 am – 5 pm weekdays, and we can be reached 24 hours a day. Our highly trained nurses are available to assist you with scheduling appointments and telephone consultations. For urgent calls, expect a call back from us within 20 to 30 minutes. Call: 904.280.1225
Urgent visits – after hours and weekends
For urgent visits, we provide after-hours appointments for our patients, as well as Saturday/Sunday morning by appointment only. If you have an emergency, please call 911! Wolfson Children’s Hospital provides our pediatric emergency care, and offers several ER locations.
Tell us when you’re due and we’ll schedule a visit before your baby is born!
