Frequently Asked Questions
For new parents or parents-to-be: When should I choose a pediatrician?
The best time to start searching for a pediatrician is in the weeks before your expected due date,
according to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). Your pediatrician can give information about
any other area of concern you might have as a parent-to-be. You could make plans for your
pediatrician to visit you and meet the baby while you’re still in the hospital. For help finding the right
pediatrician for you, call 904.202.4968.
For Medicare patients: Why have an Annual Wellness Visit?
Medicare pays 100% of the cost for this exam with no out-of-pocket expense to you. This is not a
physical exam but is an extended visit with your doctor to create a personalized wellness plan. At this
visit, if we need to address other medical concerns (like a sore knee or other medical conditions), we
want you to know you may have a deductible or copay. To prepare for this visit, please bring all
medications, vitamins, inhalers, injectables, supplements and topical creams you are using so we can
update your records.
How often should I see my primary care doctor?
It is best to have a trusted doctor you can see regularly, especially when you have a symptom that
could mean illness; to manage a chronic or ongoing condition such as diabetes; to check on the effects
of a new medicine; to help with risk factors such as smoking or obesity; for lifestyle issues such as family
planning or prevention of sexually transmitted diseases; or for prenatal care, if you are pregnant. It is
also important to see a doctor if you haven’t had health care in a long time.
