Join the Friendly Hills Pediatrics Family

We thank you for your interest in joining the Friendly Hills Pediatrics family!

We look forward to building a long-lasting relationship with you and your child. Our practice strives to be outstanding by providing superior service, hoping that your visits are a pleasant experience for the whole family.

We are an insurance-based practice. When your child receives medical care with us, we collect copays and deductibles and bill you for medical services provided, per your medical insurance plan agreement. The only additional cost of being a patient with us is included in your annual Member Dues. We are offering your family a place where becoming part of our family means we will do our best to make your pediatric care enjoyable while meeting your healthcare needs.

Annual Membership Fee

Our Member Dues allow us to keep our practice small and provide a better service to your child and your family. By requiring member dues, we can provide enhanced access and full pediatric services that are not typically covered by medical insurance, such as: 

  • Small office with superior access

  • No additional costs for administrative requests such as sports physical forms, camp forms, school entry forms and for important screenings that help keep your child healthy

  • Access to a secure patient portal

  • Secure, easy online payments

  • After-hour access to a board-certified pediatrician for urgent care

  • Easy appointment requests

  • Communication via email, call, text, or a patient portal

  • Custom website that serves you and your family

Please note that you may only pay for your annual membership dues via cash, credit card, or debit card. Member dues are collected at the time of registration. The annual membership fee is a non-contractual fee that your insurance company will not cover. The following are the annual membership dues at introductory prices for founding members:

The following are the annual membership dues:

$125 for a child who is less than 6 years old

$100 for a child who is 6 years old and older

The maximum yearly dues for a family will be $300. 

The dues are used to support the specialized level of care and personalized, positive experience for your child. In the long run, your child’s health will benefit from easy, comforting medical visits.

We hope you feel that our practice is a good fit for your family.

Your Membership Includes the Spruce Health App!

At our office, we use Spruce Health, an easy-to-use, secure, and HIPAA-compliant communication app.  This is the easiest way to communicate with us.

The app also allows us to provide virtual care to your little ones via telemedicine appointments.
