Welcome to Tuscaloosa Pediatrics

With a team of Board Certified Physicians and a staff of professionals, we are dedicated to providing your children with comprehensive and compassionate health care. It is no secret that children who are supplied with a foundation of good health are not only healthy children, but become healthy adults. This is our commitment to you.

 

News & Announcements

LINK TO OUR PATIENT PORTAL    https://medfusion.net/tuscaloosapeds-24722/portal/#/user/login 

Walk In Clinic has been CANCELLED indefinitely. 

All patients will be seen by appointment only.

In response to the COVID 19 outbreak, we have had to make some changes. By having you call for an appointment first, our phone nurses will be able to triage all patients with fever and respiratory symptoms to a separate area of the office.  

Everyone 2 years of age or older must wear a mask or other facial covering upon arrival to our office according to CDC recommendations.  We also ask that you please minimize bringing multiple family members to the office.

Well patients and sick patients with non-respiratory illnesses (injuries, rashes, etc) will continue to enter through the front door.  The waiting rooms are closed and everyone will be taken directly to an exam room. 

Patients with symptoms that could be consistent with COVID19 will be asked to enter through the side door on the right (north) side of the building. We have a separate check in/out area and one hallway of patient rooms which have been isolated from the rest of the office.  Designated “sick patient” doctors and nurses will work only in this area. 

As always, we will keep you updated as recommendations are changing on a daily basis during this outbreak. 

New Patient Portal!

Tuscaloosa Pediatrics is pleased to announce that we now have a secure Patient Portal. This portal is designed to enhance patient/guardian – physician communication.  We encourage you to sign up for our patient portal which can provide a quick and easy way to request appointments and prescription refills, update demographics, and communicate with our office staff.  All users are established by signing a Patient Portal User Agreement. If you are interested in signing up for Patient Portal access, please do so by completing the user agreement while at our office or by downloading it from the Forms section on this website.  You can drop the form by our office or send it by email (insurance@tuscaloosapeds.com) or fax (205)333-8233.  We will then send you a Patient Portal invitation through your email. If you have any questions regarding the Patient Portal please contact our office at (205) 333-8222 and one of our staff members will be happy to assist you.

Holiday Hours 

Tuscaloosa Pediatrics is only closed for six holidays during the year - New Year's Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.  We are typically open for walk in sick patients on the day after Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, and New Year's Eve when these fall on a weekday.  We are open on all other federal holidays including Martin Luther King Jr Day, President's Day, Columbus Day, and Veterans Day.

Lactation Services

Since January 2019 we have been providing Lactation Services with our Lactation Specialist Vickie Lyle, RN, IBCLC for our patients. Newborns will follow up with Vickie and one of our pediatricians within 1-3 days after discharge for weight and jaundice checks. Breastfeeding moms are always welcome to call and schedule a visit with Vickie if they need advice at any time!  We also offer Baby Weigh Day every Wednesday from 11-12.

Time For Your Checkup!

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends a yearly checkup for all children.  Call now to schedule your child's checkup.  Remember all children entering Kindergarten and 6th grade in the fall will need an updated Blue Card so check with us now to make sure your child is up to date on their immunizations.
