Lawrence Weprin mutilated my cousin's nose. When my cousin tried to warn people, Ob Gyn Dr. Rebecca Weprin said my cousin was a liar and crazy. She's never met him. She's more than welcome to look in his nose and see the huge hole her father in law put there. She proved she cares more about covering for her family than protecting the public.
There is a new kind of parenting education that reaches everyone, everywhere, all the time, and pediatricians can participate. Advancing Parenting, a Camarillo CA nonprofit organization, produces parenting tips bumper stickers that can be put in holders and placed on tables and counters in waiting rooms so parents can choose one or more for their cars. Bumper stickers are a unique and powerful way to share parenting wisdom. Just one will be read thousands of times.

There are fifty-one different stickers in a set and each communicates a parenting behavior or practice generally recognized as supporting the healthy development of children. The tips focus on intellect, mental health, and character.

We are so proud of our patients for their dedication to social distancing! We still recommend everyone due for routine immunizations keep their appointments. We have changed our schedule to allow for only well visits in the morning and then very limited sick visits and many telehealth visits in the afternoon.

We don’t want anyone’s health to be neglected, so we have expanded our telehealth utilization. If you think your child needs to be seen, please call our office and inquire about telehealth. You don’t need any special equipment other than a cell phone with a camera. A link is texted to your phone immediately prior to your appointment and we connect. To assist with the care of your child we ask for an accurate weight (home scales are fine) and the ability to see and interact with them on the phone (no telehealth visits while the child is asleep in the other room).

As always our Nurse Advice Line is happy to take any questions after hours. We appreciate everyone’s patience during these trying times.

At Park Cities Pediatrics, we are following the developments of SARS-CoV-2 also known as Coronavirus very closely. Our goal is the health of your children, but also of the entire community. Right now we are experiencing a sharp increase in positive cases in Dallas and surrounding counties, but we think this number underestimates the actual number of cases. Because of the widespread nature of the illness, we continue to recommend that everyone practice “social distancing” in order to slow the spread of illness.

As of right now we have changed our schedule to allow for well child visits (especially those with vaccinations) in the morning and sick visits only in the afternoon. If you have not been contacted about rescheduling your appointment, you will be soon. We have not had any problem accommodating everyone, but as this illness spreads, we might see a sharp increase in patient visits. For the time being, we have asked parents to postpone lower acuity visits if possible. For example, mild upper respiratory symptoms, behavior concerns, stable chronic concerns, and mild injuries. We are always happy to advise some good home care over the phone.

Currently there is no readily available test for Coronavirus for mildly ill individuals (tests are being rationed for sicker individuals) so we cannot offer any testing presently. We expect that to change in the future and will let you know when that happens. If your child is experiencing mild congestion, cough, and/or fever, and you are concerned for Coronavirus, we ask that you manage it at home.

If you have questions or concerns feel free to call us and thanks to everyone for bearing with us during these troubling times.

Greetings Park Cities Pediatrics Families!

We wanted to reach out and let you know that we are filling up for the next few weeks. Please check your child’s camp and school form deadline dates and plan accordingly. We will do our best to try to fit all of our families in. Please know that there is limited availability for coveted times, specifically latest and earliest appointments, and we ask that you work with us on that.

Please keep in mind that most insurance only covers one well child visit in 365 days. If you know that you need a form signed and it asks that you have a physical done after a certain date (ex: 5/15/19), and your child has had a well visit in the last year (ex: 11/19/18) call your insurance company and ask if they cover year to date well child exams (once every 365 days) or once every calendar year (ex: if they cover a well visit done 2018 and one in 2019, but not exactly 365 days apart). You may have to pay out of pocket which is $85.00 per office visit plus any additional services.

We are able to fill out forms when well visits have been in the past year. If your child has not had a well visit in the last year they will need to have one before we fill out forms.

You can always email or fax us your forms. Our email is [email protected]pediatrics.com, and our fax is 214-373-4841.

Thanks for your understanding!
