Updates for Discovery Pediatrics

2016/2017 FLU UPDATE!!!!!!!

Flu Vaccine is still available!

 ALSO, for 2017/2018 FLU protection season we will bill the insurance company for this vaccine not only for the children; we will also bill the parents insurance for the flu vaccine.

Discovery Pediatrics Patient Portal

We are now offering an option to communicate with us online.  The patient Portal is a secure, web-based system that allows real time access to certain elements of your child’s medical record including:

-Add or update your personal information (this will speed up the check in process when you arrive for your appointment)

-Request prescriptions refills (not new prescriptions)

-Request forms

-Review and pay bills

-Review patient allergies

-Review patient current medications

-Review and print immunizations

When you connect to the portal, you are not connecting to our actual office computer system, but a secure web site hosted in our office.  Only the limited information you see is stored on the portal, the full records are maintained in our office on a separate secure server.

In order to use the Patient Portal, you must first access our web page (www.discoverypediatrics.net), click on the red link (Portal) and follow the instructions.  If you need assistance please call our business office during our normal business hours of (M-F 8:30a to 4:30p) and you will be guided through the process.

Note:  Patients over 18 have individual access to their records.  In order for parents to have access the patient must give access to the parent.

Important Information About The Patient Portal:

  • Use is for non-emergency communications and requests
  • Requests for services on the portal during the weekend will not be addressed until weekday hours of (M-F between the hours of 8:30a to 4:30p)
  • The portal is not checked on the weekends, it is only checked on the weekdays.
  • Please allow up to 24-48 business hours for us to respond.

***You can now access your child’s completed school and/or camp forms on the portal! This is a secure site to store your child’s forms. They will be available to you at any time to print and can be reprinted when you need them. If you request a form on the portal please know that the request does go through. Please do not call or email asking for the same forms. This has caused duplicate forms being processed and extra work.
