PLEASE CALL OUR OFFICE from the parking lot when you arrive for your appointment!
We are five physicians (MDs) offering well and sick care from birth to college age in St Petersburg and Largo, FL. Drs. Weinberger, Bharucha, Kim, Banks and Lopez-McCormack have specific training in pediatrics beyond medical school and are all board-certified.
We have experienced nurses (RNs and LPNs) and medical assistants dedicated to the medical care of your child.
Our board-certified pediatricians are on-call 24 hours a day, 7 days per week, including holidays. If your child has an urgent medical concern that cannot wait until the office opens, you may call our office phone (727) 525-2161. We offer urgent care appointments Saturday and Sunday mornings.
Except in cases of emergency, referrals to any specialists require one week’s notice in order to obtain the proper authorization from your insurance carrier. If you require a referral, please contact the office for assistance. Most insurance companies require you to see your pediatrician before you can see a specialist.
If your child is up to date on his/her annual physical, you may request a refill through our portal or your pharmacy may fax a refill request to our office at (727) 527-1968. Please allow 48 hours to process your request. For ADHD patients, a parent or guardian will need to pick up the prescription in person at the office of your choice. By law, most ADHD medications require in-person pick up and evaluation of your child by the physician every three months.
