What to Expect from Our Expanded Pediatric Care

Parental Involvement and Education: We recognize that parents have the God-given right and duty to make decisions for their children. Our role is to provide expert support, guidance, and education, and to seek the assent of children, as their developmental stages permit. We humbly acknowledge that, fundamentally, parents are in the best position to know what is best for their own children.

Whether it’s vaccinations or other treatments, we never force or coerce parents into accepting any treatment plan for their children. In simple terms, we propose but never impose.

Comprehensive Care: We provide comprehensive care for children of all ages. From routine check-ups, same-day sick visits, and laceration repairs to managing chronic conditions., our team is here to support your child's health and well-being. Our aim is to promote your children’s well-being and development.

Preventive Health Services: Identifying problems early often leads to improved outcomes. Emphasizing the importance of preventive healthcare, we seek to ensure the long-term health and optimal development of your child. Regular well-child visits and developmental screenings are integral components of our pediatric services.

Convenient and Accessible Care

Same-Day Appointment Availability: We understand the importance of timely healthcare, and our expanded pediatrics capability ensures same-day appointments are available to address your child's urgent healthcare needs.

Insurance Flexibility: COLFS Medical Clinic accepts most insurance plans. This flexibility allows you to remain with COLFS even if you switch insurance plans or change employers.

Self-Pay Options: At COLFS Medical Clinic, we offer flexible self-pay options to ensure that all families, regardless of insurance coverage, can access high-quality pediatric care. Our self-pay options provide transparency and affordability, allowing you to focus on your child's health without the constraints of insurance limitations.
