Pediatric Partners of Augusta
This clinic has personally attacked my rights as a parent. No consideration and complete disregard of a legal order. This is a perfect example of a non-custodial parent being sidelined when all I want to do is be present and involved. Is that not what we want as a society? My child is being seen by Dr. Strickland. He underwent an evaluation for ADHD. My ex-wife has primary custody but we have Joint Legal custody. I called the clinic and spoke to Mr. Jeff Small who is the clinic administrator and let him know that I was being completely left out of the process. My ex-wife and her husband refuse to include me as I have requested to be since the beginning. I have been asked to be given appointment dates and times so I can be a part of conversation and decision making as it pertains to my son. At that point I asked to have an appointment with Dr. Strickland so we could talk about the diagnosis and medication. I made it very clear to everyone that all I wanted was to understand what was going on. After countless emails and telephone conversations I had to physically go to the clinic to speak to Mr. Small since he stopped replying to my emails. I asked him in person and he told me I had to call and make an appointment. After doing so I was told there were no appointments available. The following week, after I am told there are no appointments I find out through my children that they went to the doctor again for a follow up regarding the medicine at a time that I was told had no available appointments. When I found out I call Mr. Small and asked why I could not get an appointment but they could. At that time he told me that now the Doctor will not speak to me without the mother being there. Because the divorce decree states she has final decision making on disagreements. There has not been a disagreement. I am just asking to be informed by the doctor what her thoughts are so I can figure out if I am ok with how they have proceeded.
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.
