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

  • Overnight access to a board-certified pediatrician for acute 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 at introductory prices for founding members of our practice:

First child: $100 for a child who is less than 6 years old or $75 for a child who is 6 years old or older.

$25 discount will be applied for each additional sibling. 

The member dues turn out to be about $6-$8 per month for each child. By keeping the practice small, we can provide a more personalized and positive experience for your child. In the long run, your child’s health will benefit from easy, comforting medical checkups.

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

We are currently applying an additional 25% discount for new families!

Please note, the member dues are not applicable for patients who have Medi-Cal.

Your Membership Includes the Spruce Health App!

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

Our goal is to provide comprehensive access to care to all our patients, and the Spruce Health app helps us achieve this goal.  Through this secure messaging app, you can send us text messages, pictures, and documents.

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

You can download the app by clicking on the link below, or you can text us at 562-378-6800, and we will send you a link directly to your phone.
