You want the best for your child, and one of the most important decisions you will make concerns
whom to trust with his or her health and wellness. At Pediatric Associates–Simpsonville, our physicians are board-certified by the American Board of Pediatrics and proudly follow treatment
guidelines established by that board.
We offer comprehensive medical care to infants, children and adolescents from birth through the
college years. Our guiding principle is to treat patients with standards of care based on sound
medical research and to promote an atmosphere where you and your child know that you can
discuss anything with your provider.
Sick- and Well-child Areas. When your children are well and require wellness
services, the last thing you want is for them to become ill from contact with
germs. That's why Pediatric Associates-Simpsonville separates sick and well
children. The office features separate entrances, waiting areas and
patient rooms to keep sick and well patients apart as much as possible.
On-site Laboratory. Having these services in-house allows the physicians to receive the results quickly, which in turn allows them to make an accurate diagnosis and determine the best course of treatment for your child.
Seven-day Medical Coverage. Pediatric Associates-Simpsonville schedules same-day sick emergency visits for patients. We have appointments Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m.-6 p.m.and Friday 7:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. In addition, our physicians are available Saturday mornings from 9-11:30 a.m. for urgent and emergent visits.
Phone-A-Nurse Service. Sometimes parents are unsure if a child needs to see a physician or have questions about symptoms or medications. That is why Pediatric Associates-Simpsonville has dedicated nurse phone services. Each day, nurses are designated to answer parents' calls. As a result, your call will be returned promptly, and if your child has something for which a medical protocol is in place (such as pink eye), a prescription can be called in without your needing to bring your child to the office for a visit. If the nurse and parent determine your child needs to see a physician, we will schedule a visit for the same day.
After-hours Pediatric Nurse Triage. Should your child become sick or injured after hours, call the practice to speak to an on-call physician or a GHS Children's Hospital emergency pediatric nurse. Pediatric Associates-Simpsonville, at times, forwards its phones to a nurse specially trained to evaluate sick or injured children. Depending on the situation, the nurse can offer recommendations for parents treating the child at home, ask the parent to contact the office staff the next day to schedule a visit, request the parent bring the child to the Children's Emergency Center at Greenville Memorial Hospital, or page the Pediatric Associates-Simpsonville physician on call. This phone consultation is offered as a complimentary service to our patients.
Privileges at Children's Hospital of Greenville Health System (GHS). All our physicians have admitting privileges at GHS Children's Hospital, the region's only children's hospital, with more than 30 pediatric subspecialists for consultation or treatment. Unlike specialists trained to treat adults, pediatric specialists have familiarity with childhood conditions, medication dosages and emotional needs of patients and their families. We maintain excellent communication with these physicians and Children's Hospital staff, which in turn allows us to provide the best care for your child.
Prenatal Consultations. During your pregnancy or before adopting a child, you may schedule a complimentary 15-20 minute consultation with a pediatrician. We recommend scheduling this visit during the second trimester. Please note that the prenatal visit is not required for you to choose us as your pediatrician upon delivery in the hospital.
