Sumter Pediatrics isn’t limited to pediatrics alone. We offer a wide range of services under one roof for our patients’ convenience. We hope to provide you with more than you ever expected from your pediatrician’s office.
One of the physicians from Sumter Pediatrics P.A. is on call after hours and on weekends for emergencies and can be reached by calling (803) 775-6311 where your call will be forwarded to our answering service. At times when our physician is busy a trained nurse from our practice will return your call. There are some emergencies that are best handled by taking your child to the emergency room. Such situations might include serious breathing problems, unconsciousness, lacerations that need repair, and broken bones.
For your convenience, Sumter Pediatrics offers dedicated staff for those patients needing immunizations.
Sumter Pediatrics, P.A. makes the health and well-being of our patients, their families, our staff and the surrounding community our top concern. Further, we firmly believe in the effectiveness of proper vaccination to prevent serious illness and to save lives, and in the safety of the vaccines, we administer. For these reasons, we require that all of our patients receive vaccinations according to the Recommended Child and Adolescent Immunization Schedule published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and endorsed by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP).
If you have questions or concerns about vaccination, we will always take the time to discuss them in detail and will make a separate appointment for that purpose if necessary. If you are ultimately unwilling to comply with this policy, we will ask you to transfer your child’s care to another provider who is willing to conform to your preferences. We do not keep a list of such providers, nor would we recommend any such physician.
We provide newborn care as early as the day your child is sent home from the hospital. Please reach out to us and we will be happy to set this up. A Lactation Consultant is also available to provide support to new and nursing mothers. We also have Medela breast pumps for rent and nursing supplies for purchase.
In addition to newborn care we provide physicals for school, sports, college, sick care, flu shot clinics and asthma maintenance.
Do you have questions or concerns? Experience Counts! Our dedicated group of experienced staff and Triage Nurses are available to assist you when you call or visit our practice.
Our nurses provide invaluable support to our patients and physicians.
