As a busy mom who is always on the go, one thing we did not mess around with was our choice in a physician for Hattie. Even before Hattie was born, we took finding the right physician for our family very seriously. Just like we are laser-focused on Hattie’s health, SSM Health Pediatric Primary Care physicians and offices are focused on the health and safety of our family.
Just because we live in challenging times, doesn’t mean that you should skip going to the doctor. As much as we love our Virtual Visits, in-person Well Visits are equally important. These regular visits provide a baseline of your child’s health and can set you up for success for the year. SSM Health Pediatric Primary Care makes it easy for you to schedule your visits online, find a location close to home, and keep track of all your child’s medical records all in one place with myChart. Trust me on this one, as a mom who registered for Kindergarten last year, it was helpful to have everything in one place!
The physicians with SSM Heath are focused on your child and getting to know them on a personal level as well as understanding their individualized healthcare needs. If your children are like mine, they think they only go to the doctor for shots, or when they are super sick and that’s just not the case. When you have the type of relationships with your physician where you can set expectations and have a great bedside manner, it’s a positive experience for all (even when there are shots.)
SSM Heath has thought of it all with the ability to book your appointments online as well as use MyChart to view your child’s medical records. I’m always thinking about my to-do list when I can’t pick up the phone to call and make an appointment. Booking online, and easily accessing records saves time and energy when it comes to keeping our busy schedules on task.

With so many locations, find the SSM Health Pediatric Primary Care office that is most convenient for you. Be sure to inquire about their updated policies and procedures for office visits. For us, waiting in our car before an appointment and wearing a mask are two requests for a visit. We are happy to follow these policies do our part in keeping those around us safe.
Now is a great time to catch up on Well Visits, school, and sports physicals for schools as well as any sick visits you may need.
Have you been to your pediatric primary care physician lately?
