Evans-Wood, Allison, MD
I give all the credit to the rest of the staff including the front desk and nurses. However, I feel Dr. Evans-wood was absolutely terrible. I went in for my physical and each time I questioned a certain lab work she requested, she would get an attitude questioning why I was even there if I wasn't wanting all these tests done. Not only that, she asked if I had any medical questions and concerns. When I just disclosed I had problems with acid reflux, she marked all these charges/codes to my insurances that I wasn't there not only for a yearly physical, but as a sick visit as well. I spent plenty of times calling between my insurance and their billing department trying to clarify that I was only there for a physical and if I knew the words "sometimes I have acid reflux, what can I do?" Costed me an extra $100 I would never have gone there. The lady in charge of their billing department lied to me about the codes and I had to fight over two months until she finally called and said there was a mistake with the codes and I didn't owe anything. Ridiculous!
Tips & Advices
A child should see his or her pediatrician frequently during the first few years. Once the child reaches age 3, parents should schedule a doctor's visit at least once per year. Before that, however, the American Academy of Pediatrics suggests parents arrange visits according to the following schedule:
  • 2 to 5 days old
  • 1 month old
  • 4 months old
  • 6 months old
  • 9 months old
  • 12 months old
  • 15 months old
  • 24 months old (2 years)
  • 30 months old (2.5 years)
No, parents should call 911, an emergency physician, or a pediatric emergency physician if a child suffers an acute illness or injuries. Doctors in these fields are more qualified than pediatricians to handle emergency situations.
A well-visit is a routine visit with a pediatrician to track a child's development, discuss medical or emotional concerns, and receive immunizations and medical advice.
Yes, pediatricians provide immunizations for infants and children up through 21 years.
No, pediatricians do not have to be board certified.They're only required to have a state license. However, certification indicates a dedication to studying pediatrics beyond the requirements.
