We look forward to welcoming you to Sprout Pediatrics.
If you haven't already read How Sprout Works, please do so before scheduling an appointment. Shared expectations are important as we begin collaborating to support your children's health and wellness.
Your choice of pediatrician is very personal, so meeting in person is important. If you don't currently need a healthcare visit or will need to change your medical home with your insurer prior to an appointment, check the calendar for an open house. You can also schedule an appointment if you have a concern, need a well child check or just want to visit the clinic and meet us. We want you to be comfortable choosing Sprout as your medical home, so we will not bill the communications & portals fee until the month following your first visit.
We are in the process of changing electronic health record (EHR) and portal systems. We are excited about moving to AdvancedMD for it’s superior usability, reliability and functionality. It has several additional patient-centered features and integrations we look forward to using with you.
Please email us If you would like to join Sprout during our transition to AdvancedMD. Depending on your needs we will register and schedule you or send you a link to the new portal and instructions. All registration, consent and history forms will be completed in the new portal. Until then, you will find our forms and policies in the (wait for it…) Forms & Policies area of the Patient Website.
Thank you for your patience while we work to make Sprout better for your families.
Any change, even a change for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks & discomforts.

It is easier for everyone (particularly the small, often impatient people who will likely accompany you to your first appointment) when you read our policies and complete history and registration forms in advance.
Our Notice of Privacy Practices (HIPAA statement) is available there for your review at any time, and you will be asked to acknowledge we have made it available to you.
You will also find release forms to give other providers permission to send records to Sprout, including pre-filled forms for several local organizations for your convenience. You can mail, fax or hand deliver these to the other provider, or to us to fax on your behalf.
