At Sanford Pediatrics, we strive to provide quality pediatric care in a welcoming environment where parents and pediatricians are partners. Our strengths include:
Experience: Sanford Pediatrics has provided care for the greater Sanford community for over 30 years.
Expertise: When your child visits our office, they will see a AAP Board Certified pediatrician. We believe this level of training provides optimum care specifically for children.
Convenience: Located near downtown Sanford, we are close to home. We have extended evening office hours and Saturday morning hours for acutely sick patients – see our hours below.
Care for the Whole Child: Sanford Pediatrics cares for patients from birth till 21 years of age, providing both preventative care and acute sick care.
Sanford Pediatrics practices an Advanced Care Team approach including a case manager (Sarah, RN) and care coordination manager (Fabiola, Care Manager) as well as nutritional and health coach (Anita, LPN). We also maintain close working relationships and have co-management agreements with certified providers outside of our practice for identified needs for therapies such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, counseling, behavioral health services, and other aspects of patient care.
We believe an important role as the Primary Care Provider is to ensure patients receive and understand the importance of coordinating care across providers enabling “whole child care” and ensuring every child receives the services and care needed to have the best possible health outcomes.
Sanford Pediatrics encourages and support good oral and dental health for all our patients by providing oral health exams, and recommended periodic applications of dental fluoride varnish at age-appropriate times. Fluoride varnish is recommended beginning at tooth eruption until 3.5 years of age in the primary care setting. In addition, we also recommend that all our patents see their primary dentist for routine, regular care as a component of our whole-child approach to care.
Recognitions: Sanford Pediatrics practices evidence based medicine and is recognized by the National Committee for Quality Assurance as a Patient Centered Medical Home. In addition, we are Level 3 BQPP providers with Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina indicating recognition for the highest level of quality patient care.
Access: For after hours advice that is urgent and cannot wait until the next business day, a pediatrician is on call 365 days a year. Our office utilizes the UNC Chapel Hill nurse triage services as well. Please see contact numbers below. For life threatening emergencies call 911.
PARENT EDUCATION CLASSES
Car Seat Safety Event
On August 25th from 2pm-4pm Sanford Pediatrics will be holding a Car Seat Safety Training Event at our office at 1801 Doctors Drive, for parents and care givers of infants and children from birth to 8 years of age.
NC State Law requires that all children from birth to 8 years of age or 80 pounds and under 4 feet 9 inches tall be properly secured in a child restraint seat. Certified Trained Technicians will be on site to educate parents about the proper use of child restraint seats. They will also check individual car seats for parents to ensure proper installation and use of child restraint seats.
Please join us for this special training event and don’t forget to bring the vehicle and child restraint seat with you for individual inspections and assistance.
