New Patients Pediatrics
We are excited that you have chosen Primary Care Associates for your child's medical care. Your comfort and convenience are our priority, and we strive to make every visit to our office a positive experience. To help you get acquainted with our office and first visit procedures, we have included helpful information on this page.
What to bring to your first visit?
We work hard to ensure that you and your family receive prompt medical care in a comfortable office setting. To help expedite the first appointment, we ask that you please bring your insurance information and medical records that haven't been previously sent. Please come 10 minutes before your first visit in order to complete all necessary forms.
Please send the following medical records before your first visit to our office. These records can be faxed to our office at 708-749-5489. You may also bring a copy of these records to our office in advance of the visit. Please label the records with the name of the physician with whom your child has an appointment. We will try to have pertinent information loaded into our Electronic Healthcare Record in advance of your visit. We do not need the entire medical record. We request the information noted below.
- Immunization Records
- Growth Charts
- Most recent lab results (lead level, blood counts, or blood tests)
- Most recent Consultation and Surgical Notes from a specialist, if applicable
- Newborn hospital records for newborns
- Most recent well child exam from your prior physician
We are also happy to offer you the option to download, print and complete our office forms to reduce wait times during your first appointment. Click here for Patient Forms.

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.
