We are excited that you have chosen Edelstein Pediatrics for your child's medical care. To help you get acquainted with our office and first visit procedures, we have included helpful information on this page.

What to Expect
A pleasant, comfortable first visit builds trust and helps put the child at ease during future visits. We want your child to enjoy getting to know our doctors and staff so we work hard to establish this bond during every appointment to our office. During your initial appointment, we will explain everything in detail and answer any questions you may have. We look forward to meeting you and your child and providing the quality, comprehensive medical care you expect and deserve.

F.A.Q.

1. How do I make an appointment for a new patient?  Please call our dedicated new pateint line at 561-357-8993 option 3, there you can leave all pertiant information so we can have your insurance verified before we contact you to scheudule your child's first appointment.

2. When are new patient appointment scheduled?  We schedule our new patient appointments in the morning.

3. The doctor is a single provider, what happens when the office is closed?  On the rare occasions that the office is closed Dr. Edelstein (or one of his staff members) are still available to answer urgent medical questions. If your child is sick and needs to see a provider Dr. Edelstein has made arrangements with another local pediatric group to see his sick patients when he is unavailable.

4. What insurance plans do you accept? We accept most major Florida based insurance plans. Out of state plans must be verified to determine whether or not Dr. Edelstein is an in-network or out of net-work provider. We also currently accept Staywell Medicaid and Healthy Kids Plans through Staywell and Aetna Better Health. 

5. My child isn't sick, what type of appointment should I schedule?  If your child is due for a wellness check we would be happy to schedule your child's check up with us. If not, please schedule an 'establishment visit' in which we can obtain vital signs and a complete medical history for your child--this is a great opportunity to meet Dr. Edelstein and discuss any medical concerns you may have. 

6. Will Dr. Edelstein accept my child if I refuse vaccines or wish to seperate vaccines? Dr. Edelstein follows the AAP guidelines regarding vaccines therefore he will not accept new patients who decline vaccines or wish to seperate vaccines. Please see the vaccine section of our website for more information.
