At Thrive Pediatrics we value your time and want to maximize your experience with our providers and reduce your in-office waiting time. If you have been here before, please log in to the Patient Portal prior to your visit to fill out your child’s developmental questionnaire and update any medical history. The Healow app allows contactless check-in from your car. Your child’s health is our number one priority, that’s why we designed our office to have separate well and sick areas, including waiting rooms, exam rooms, and restrooms to ensure your health and safety at all times. We follow the American Academy of Pediatrics recommendations for Preventative Pediatric Healthcare.
