Welcome to Mid-Ohio Pediatrics & Adolescents, Inc.

We appreciate the opportunity to care for your child. As specialists in examining and treating children from birth through young adulthood, our interest lies in both the physical and emotional growth of your child. We are also firm believers in fostering a healthy parent-child relationship with the hope that parenthood is a rewarding and fulfilling experience.  Our goal is to provide the finest quality services to our patients in a comfortable and pleasant setting and to do so more efficiently and economically.

Mid-Ohio Pediatrics and Adolescents, Inc. is among one of the largest pediatric practices in the Central Ohio area.  Since 1986, our office has been located in the community of Westerville, but we also serve the surrounding communities and school districts.  With our longevity,  we now have the privilege to serve a second generation of children.

A unique characteristic about our organization is that we are associates – one of our physicians is always available for office care or telephone consultation. During routine and follow-up appointments, you are able to meet with the physician of your choice. However, because we are a group practice, sick visits and emergency calls could be scheduled with one of the other physicians in order for your child to be seen as quickly as possible.

Additional Flu shot appointments available!!

We have received more flu vaccine from the manufacturer and now have additional flu clinic appointments available. Please call one of our friendly Receptionists to schedule your child’s/children’s flu shots at our new location of 465 North Cleveland Avenue, Suite 200.  Our phone number remains the same at (614) 899-0000.

Walk-In hours!

Cold and flu season is upon us and we want to remind our established patient families of our Walk-In hours! We have Walk-In appointments available Monday-Friday from 7:30am to 8:30am for acute illnesses only such as colds, earaches, coughs, sore throats, pink eye and rashes. For those needing to get their child’s flu shot,  please call our office for a flu shot appointment as we can not offer flu shots during the Walk-In hours.

Flu clinic appointments available

MOP is happy to announce we have flu clinic appointments available. Please call one of our friendly Receptionists to schedule your child’s/children’s flu shots at our new location of 465 North Cleveland Avenue, Suite 200.  Our phone number remains the same at (614) 899-0000.

Back to school is around the corner!

Summer is halfway over so back to school is just around the corner! If your child is due for their annual physical, call our office soon as these appointments will fill up quickly!
 
Just a reminder that only our address changed – our phone number stayed the same (614) 899-0000.

Do you have an ill child and a busy day ahead?

Do you have an ill child? Do you have a busy day ahead?  We do offer early morning walk-in hours for our established patients with acute issues such as colds/coughs, ear pain, sore throats, rashes and pink eye.  Our walk-in office hours are from 7:30am to 8:30am Monday through Friday!

Our waiting room walls are bare!

MOP would like to include our patient families to help us decorate our waiting room!  We are inviting our patient families to submit creative candid photos of their child/children/family/pets.  If your photo is selected, we will have your photo printed on canvas and display it in our waiting room.  Our hope is to receive enough photos to be able to rotate or change them out on a regular basis!

If you would like to submit a photo (.jpg format) please scan and email to midohiopeds@gmail.com  Please include contact information so if your photo is selected, we can contact you to get a release permitting us to use your photo(s) in the waiting room.

Happy snapping!

Announcing the addition of Walk-In hours!

Beginning Monday, May 6, 2019, Mid-Ohio Pediatrics and Adolescents will begin offering Walk-In hours from 7:30am – 8:30am Monday through Friday.  These walk-in patient visits are for established patients with acute issues only such as colds, earaches, coughs, sore throats, pink eye and rashes.  Chronic or more complex issues such as headaches, stomachaches, chronic coughs, injuries and other complicated issues are best dealt with at a scheduled appointment.  We are unable to see well checks during Walk-In hours.

The number of patients seen during Walk-In hours will vary day to day by how many physicians are available that particular day, the number of patients wanting to be seen and when the walk-in patients arrive.  The earlier patients arrive, the better chance to be seen during the walk-in hours.  Those patients who are not able to be seen during walk-in hours will be scheduled for a sick appointment early in the day.

We are ready!

We’ve been working really hard to prepare the new office! Mid-Ohio Pediatrics and Adolescents, Inc. reopens today at 465 N. Cleveland Avenue, Suite 200 in Westerville! We look forward to your next visit to share our new space!

Please bear with us!

In order to provide you with the most efficient visit possible, Mid-Ohio Pediatrics is installing an EMR

(Electronic Medical Records) system.  This technology enables MOP to provide your child even

more convenient care, and ensures that their records will hold more accurate documentation, in a safer and

more concisely stored location.

 

By initiating electronic health records, we will have the most current technology and keeping with current

health information.  In addition, this promotes “green practices” to lower our paper usage.

 

Please bear with us, as we are currently in training with this new EMR system and the new system will

debut on Monday, October 3, 2016.

 

 Thank you for your patience as we make this transition!
