Community Pediatrics of Milford

229 East Main Street
Milford, MA 01757
508-634-7333

At Community Pediatrics of Milford, we specialize in the care of children from birth to the age of eighteen. The mission of our entire staff is to know your child personally and to build a strong relationship with your whole family. The care that we give in this office includes well-child care, preventive medicine and the treatment of acute illnesses. Well-child care encompasses regular physical exams, immunizations and monitors your child’s growth and development.

During routine office visits, you are free to discuss your concerns about nutrition, behavior, safety, school performance or other issues. Ideally, well-child care begins with a visit to our office during your pregnancy; however, we welcome first-time visits from children and adolescents of all ages.

Adolescent Care

Adolescence can sometimes be a time filled with unique health concerns and challenges. Teenagers who come to Community Pediatrics of Milford will feel comfortable knowing that our staff care about them and understand their special concerns. Robin Brooke, MSN, C-FNP has received specialized training in adolescent medicine. She offers a comprehensive and confidential program of adolescent health care in a “teen-friendly” setting.

Meet the Practice

Choosing a pediatrician for your new baby is an important decision and should be made before your child’s birth. To help you with this choice, we conduct a monthly “Meet the Practice” session each month.  Soon-to-be parents can come to informally meet one of our practitioners and our office staff and ask questions. Call us to find out about our next “Meet the Practice.”

Office Hours

 

 

Appointments may be scheduled Monday - Wednesday, 8:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 pm. Please note that while our office may be open early for patient visits, our phones may be covered by our answering service before 8:15 a.m. and after 4:30 p.m.

Our office is closed on holidays.

Scheduling an Appointment

You can schedule an appointment by calling 508-634-7333 during regular office hours.  If you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment, please give us 24 hours notice so that we may schedule that time with another patient.  If we do not receive notification, a no-show charge may be billed to your account.

Urgent Care, After Hours, and Emergencies

We encourage our parents and patients to call during office hours so that we have access to your child’s medical record. We are, however, available after hours for emergency calls and can be reached by calling 508-634-7333. At Community Pediatrics of Milford, we also have Sunday urgent hours provided by the on-call physician. You must call the on-call provider and they will determine if the patient needs to be evaluated in the office. In a life-threatening emergency, call 911 immediately.

Prescription Refills

To renew your child’s prescription, call our office during regular office hours.  Refills take 48 hours to process.  Sometimes a prescription refill request appears simple, but may require an examination or new instructions. In these cases, we may request that a doctor see your child before we renew the prescription. (If you need to renew your child’s prescription for Ritalin or Adderal, please call at least seventy-two hours in advance.)

Referrals

When your child needs to see a specialist and your insurance requires a referral from your pediatrician, please call our office at least 48 hours before the appointment with the specialist. This will allow us sufficient time to process the referral.

Insurance

We are providers for most medical insurance plans. Because there are a wide variety of insurance options, please contact your insurance company directly to make sure your doctor accepts your plan.

If you are insured, please remember to bring your insurance card with you when you visit our office. We must validate your insurance at each visit. Your co-payment is due at the time of your visit. We accept cash, check, Mastercard, Visa, Discover and American Express.

Hospital Affiliations

Our primary hospital is Milford Regional Medical Center. We refer to other area specialty hospitals as needed.
