Welcome to Spring from Muskegon Pediatrics!


As school is wrapping up and the busyness of spring activities has begun, we would like to share some important information with you.


Most importantly, thank you for allowing us to care for your child. We pledge to offer you the very #BESTCARE.


School Forms


It is time to enroll for the next school year! Remember we can complete the required school forms at your child’s yearly well child check up appointment.


If your child has had a check up and needs a form completed, you can send it to us through your child’s portal, found at www.muskegonpediatrics.com or call the office at 231-638-4120.


Most kindergarteners will need their hearing and vision checked for registration. If your child has had a check up in the last year, we did those at the check up and we provide you with the information. If your child has not had a check up yet, please call 231-638-4120 to schedule an appointment.



Sports Physicals


If your child will be in 7th -12th grade, they will need a sports physical form on file at the school to participate in school sports. At Muskegon Pediatrics, the sports physical is part of the yearly check up.


We recommend all adolescents schedule their well child exam soon, allowing them to have a sports physical on file at school when it is needed. This will allow more easily for last minute decisions to try a new sport. Please call 231-638-4120 to schedule your child’s well exam.


Masks


We are required by OSHA to continue wearing masks in our office. Please come with a mask to your appointment.


Care Closet


If you are in need of diapers, wipes, clothing, underwear, bras, feminine products, soap, toothbrush/toothpaste or deodorant please call our office so we can help, 231-638-4120.



COVID Vaccination


We have the Pfizer vaccine for ages 5 yrs-11 yrs and 12yrs + available in our office, call to schedule an appointment, 231-638-4120. If you have any questions about these vaccines, please call or send a message in your child’s portal.


As of January 5th, 2022 the CDC recommends those 12 years and older receive a booster vaccine if they are 5 months out from their second vaccine. If you or your child needs a booster vaccine, please call the office to schedule an appointment.


Booster vaccines for the 5-11 year age group have not been recommended at this time.


Prescription Refills


There are two ways to request a prescription refill.

It is the beginning of the year… unfortunately there are yearly forms that need to be completed. You can complete these now ahead of your child’s appointment to save time.

  1. Social Determinants of Health

  2. Patient Information and Consent


In addition, please share any new insurance information with us so when your child does need to be seen, there are no delays when your child needs care.


Patient Centered Medical Home


As a reminder, we are committed to being your child’s patient centered medical home. What does that mean? It means that we will take a lead in helping you coordinate your child’s medical needs. This means we are available to you after hours to help guide you on caring for your child when urgent needs arise, we help coordinate care with other physicians your child may need to see, and review visits your child may make to the emergency room to make sure there are no other ongoing needs. To learn more about patient centered medical home you can go to Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) | Muskegon Pediatrics.
