ProHealth Pediatrics Puts Kids (and Parents' Schedules) First
There’s nothing more important to parents than the well-being of their children, so choosing a trusted pediatrician is one of the biggest decisions moms and dads will make. When that choice is ProHealth Pediatrics, you not only receive care from top-notch providers, but appointments that actually fit into a busy family’s schedule.
ProHealth Pediatrics, which treats kids from birth through age 18—and sometimes even older—specializes in everything from well child visits to immunizations to disease diagnosis and treatment. And parents love the convenience of on-site lab work and minimally invasive therapies, such as throat cultures to detect strep throat and IV drips for dehydration.
Spearheading this exceptional care are physicians Reginald Bowman, D.O.., Mo Khan, M.D., Ashley Fischer, M.D., as well as nurse practitioners Buffi Oberle, APN-C, April Powell, FNP-C and Miranda Funk-Garrett, APN, who work under the doctors' supervision to offer nearly the same spectrum of care as her physician colleagues. And while nurse practitioners are renowned for spending more time with patients and providing a deeper level of education, all three ProHealth Pediatrics providers excel in those areas—a huge plus for parents who crave as much information about their child’s health as possible.
What really sets ProHealth Pediatrics apart, however, is surprisingly convenient office hours, including evening appointments Monday through Thursday. The practice began offering extended hours one day a week last year to better accommodate parents who work during the day. Not surprisingly, it quickly became an in-demand time slot, and three additional evenings were soon added. ProHealth Pediatrics also schedules same-day appointments, especially for sick kids, so little ones can get the care they need fast.
Extended hours and quick access aren’t the only reasons the ProHealth Pediatrics crew is so popular. Parents rave about the fact that providers don’t rush patients in and out; instead, they sit down and offer the one-on-one attention every child deserves. The medical staff is also committed to going the extra mile for families—even calling patients during their off hours to discuss a problem or offer a solution.
And thanks to a shared records system across the ProHealth family of practices, ProHealth Pediatrics patients can seek treatment from other Pekin ProHealth offices when the office is swamped with sick kids. This cooperative approach can save parents a trip to Urgent Care or a drive into Peoria.
Convenient hours, outstanding care and a staff that goes above and beyond: That’s the ProHealth Pediatrics difference.
