Where Do I Park?
Village Pediatrics has convenient curbside parking available right outside our door. If that is not available, there are also reserved spots in the covered parking garage behind the clinic. In the unlikely event both locations are unavailable there is also nearby street parking.
Register For The Portal
Our patient portal is called AthenaHealth. This company has supported integrated electronic medical records, online appointment scheduling, insurance billing and a patient communication portal for almost 10 years. This system allows parents to create a family account with one password and provides for better access charts as well as billing access on the patient portal. At this time due to constraints of the system new, not-established families need to call the office first to obtain access to the portal if they desire. Otherwise, we set everyone up with this useful patient portal account at the first appointment.
The patient portal will allow you to:
- Send secure, private messages to us about health concerns.
- Schedule your child's own appointment.
- Request an appointment time if the desired time is unavailable.
- Enter demographic and insurance information. Filling out this information ahead of time cuts back on your wait time and our workload.
- Review and pay billing statements.
- View personal health information, along with vaccine records, labs, and other tests.
- Research health topics from a reputable source.

What is a Nurse Practitioner?
A Nurse Practitioner (NP) is a healthcare provider that has advanced and specialized training to care for patients. Most NPs are in primary care and can have many specialities such as pediatrics, family practice, or women's health to name a few. NPs can assess, diagnose and treat patients — including prescribing medications to help patients attain wellness. A NPs training emphasizes spending quality time with patients in order to educate them in health promotion and disease prevention. Spending the time to educate patients and families can lead to more fulfilling health and wellness, which can translate to less time spent in the clinic receiving care.
