New Patients

We are accepting new patients!

Here’s how you enroll:

  • Step 1: Please click on “schedule appointment” on the top of the page. Choose a “new patient meet the office” appointment that works for you. We require this free meeting before you can establish care here at the office. This gives you a chance to be sure that it will be a good fit! Please note that we do not reschedule these visits if there is a short-notice cancellation with less than 24 hours notice.
  • Step 2: If you like the office after the meeting, please contact your health insurance company, by looking on the back of your card to find the Member Services number. Ask them to change your child’s primary care provider to Fairmount Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine. If there is a problem in this step, please immediately call the FPAM office at 215-774-1166, so that we can fix the problem.
  • Step 3: You can schedule your first appointment using the appointment schedule link on the header of the fairmountpediatrics.com page. For a first appointment, use a New Patient Well Visit if your child is due for a checkup. Next, during business hours, please call the office (215-774-1166) to get a user name and password for the portal. Please click “send message” on the website, and log in. Follow the instructions to change the password. Please fill out all demographic information and medical information. Now you are ready for your first visit!
  • Step 4: If your child has been seen by another pediatrician, please request from them, in writing, to send selections from your child’s records (vaccine record, growth chart, problem list, all labs and studies, all consultant letters, and notes from most recent two visits) to Fairmount Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, at the address at the top of this page. If this is not possible, please do bring a copy of your child’s vaccine record to the first visit.

Newborns

We know what a wonderful, yet hectic, time it can be when bringing a new baby home. We would like to offer some helpful advice so that you may avoid some common mistakes that parents of newborns make when it comes to your insurance company. Taking the following steps will also help to ensure that your visits to our office are uncomplicated by extra paperwork.

Tips

  • Contact your human resources department or member services at your insurance company and inform them that you have a new baby. Please try to do this within the first few days of the baby’s life. Most insurance companies require that this be done within the first 30 days of life. If you have an HMO, please ALSO CONTACT THE INSURANCE COMPANY yourself! This will get the ball rolling, in case you need a referral for a specialist.
  • Bring the mother’s insurance card with you to the baby’s first visit. The baby will be covered under the mother’s identification number until he/she receives an individual card or through the first 30 days of life. (Reality check: What will really happen is, we will submit the bill to the mother’s insurance and they will deny it. You will get a new insurance card within a few weeks, with a different number. PLEASE REMEMBER TO GIVE US THIS NEW NUMBER! Then, we will resubmit the newborn visit bill under the new number and it will be covered.)
  • Once you receive notification from your insurance company that your new dependent has been added to your insurance, present this information to the office immediately so that proper billing is completed. PLEASE BRING US THE NEW INSURANCE NUMBER AS SOON AS YOU GET IT!
  • You may receive a separate card with your child’s name. You will need to give this to the front desk so there is a current copy in your child’s chart.
  • If you have an HMO insurance you will likely need to select a Primary Care Physician (PCP) for your child. You may do this at the time of enrollment or you may contact member services and inform them that you wish to select our office for your child’s PCP. Failing to do so may result in a denial of your claims.
