October 5, 2023

Dear Parent or Guardian,

On October 19, 2023, we will begin the process of updating our Electronic Health Record (EHR) and scheduling systems to enhance our ability to care for your child. In anticipation of this, the office will be closed on Wednesday, October 18th for staff training.

 As our team learns and adjusts to the new and enhanced EHR system, certain aspects of your patient experience may take more time than expected. However, we continue to be committed to providing high-quality care for your child. 

Here are a few helpful updates and tips:                                                                     

  • APPOINTMENTS: Our staff will need additional time with you at your next appointment to verify and update your child’s patient information. Please allow additional time for these updates. It’s important to take this step to protect your child’s privacy and safety. Please remember to bring your driver’s license and insurance card with you to your child’s next visit.
  • Please be aware that before your next appointment, you will receive text messages asking you to register, upload insurance cards and complete forms. The text will say “Welcome to Pediatric Associates but the link included will be specific to Community Pediatric Medical Group.
  • While we are learning the new EHR, we will temporarily have less appointments available.  We ask that you kindly wait to schedule non-urgent appointment for a few weeks.

 If you have any questions about this transition, please contact us at (805) 495-0841. Thank you in advance for your patience during our system upgrade.
