Care Team Approach
Thanks to the families who have entrusted us with the extraordinary opportunity of providing care to their children, we have become an established and thriving practice. With our extension to Pearl Street we look forward to bringing the care team approach to that location. Just as parents must adjust their parenting focus and techniques as their children grow, we make every effort to accommodate our growth. Consequently, to ensure easy access to appointments and to maintain a personalized feel, we use a Care Teams model.
The Care Teams consist of a pediatrician and one Pediatric Nurse Practitioner (PNP) or Physician Assistant (PA). The purpose of this team approach is to limit the number of pediatric providers that each patient and/or family sees on a regular basis. Certainly, individuals always have the choice of which provider to see; however, by typically being seen by one Care Team, we can provide the highest quality and the best continuity of care while patients and families become more familiar and more comfortable with only a small number of pediatric providers.
To join a Care Team, a patient or family simply needs to choose a care team member. By mentioning this person’s name when scheduling an appointment, our staff will make every effort to schedule the appointment with that care team member. If there are scheduling conflicts, our staff will offer an appointment with another member of your child’s Care Team. For example, when making an appointment with Dr. Amy, if both the patient and Dr. Amy's schedules are compatible, then an appointment will be scheduled with Dr. Amy. If however, either the patient or Dr. Amy cannot find a mutual time for an appointment, our staff will offer an appointment with Noriko.
