Still Have Questions
Let Us Help You
Concierge Medicine or Direct Primary Care is a new way of delivering healthcare that eliminates the middle man and saves you time and money. We have several question and answers to help you learn more about Concierge Medicine and the benefits of your Wings and Roots Pediatrics membership.
All, but we only use it on expensive things. Roots and Wings Pediatrics works on a membership basis. Insurance will be billed for vaccinations, some labs, and when you need imaging or to see a specialist. This eliminates the middle man and brings back direct patient centered care – just you and your doctor. Your monthly fee means nobody dictates how long you can spend with your doctor and she is not rushing to see 25 more patients that day. There are no hidden fees and no surprise bills. All your child’s primary care needs are covered with one known and steady fee! Since your membership is not tied to insurance, you never have to change doctors when you change jobs or insurance. This provides continuity of care and will lead to better health outcomes.
Roots and Wings Pediatrics is not an insurance plan in and of itself. It is recommended you still carry insurance for possible specialists visits or surgeries. Your child’s vaccines will be billed directly to your insurance as well by the pharmacy as is done with traditional practices and other medications. If you do not have insurance, we will work with you to find a workable solution.
Visits to specialists, urgent care, emergency rooms, or admissions to the hospital. Any services obtained not at Roots and Wings Pediatrics (xrays, some bloodwork, prescription medications, etc). Many common lab tests (strep, urine, flu, glucose, etc) are covered with your membership.
We can at the doctor’s discretion. The office is set up with equipment and medicine to makes things seamless. Sometimes getting care at home is scarier for kids because it changes their “safe space” but late at night with other children asleep, we get it and will come to you if feasible. Also, we will gladly come to you to assist with lactation or perform frenotomies.
Yes. Dr. Sinclair trusts the science of vaccines and the safety of them. She vaccinates according to the CDC guidelines. She will vaccinate using the green schedule or work with parents to develop their own schedule. Dr. Sinclair also has the time to talk to you if you have questions or concerns about particular vaccines and is willing to work with your family.
Yes! Roots and Wings Pediatrics is happy to provide you with an invoice for fees, but recommends you speak directly with your insurance plan to ensure your funds can be used to pay for membership.
Having health insurance does not guarantee excellence pediatric care or service. Many pediatricians have large patient panels and cannot take extra time to address multiple concerns at one visit or even see you the same day you call. Many insurance plans have very high deductibles and urgent care is expensive! The membership fee at Roots and Wings Pediatrics allows you to have direct contact with the physician who knows your child 24/7 and ensure all your questions are answered and concerns are addressed at your convenience. Croup at 10pm? Call and we will take care of it. Roots and Wings Pediatrics is designed for convenience with the patient as the top priority!
Dr. Sinclair recognizes that ALL children deserve outstanding, personalized care, regardless of income. A limited number of memberships have been reserved for children who need easy access to care without the means to pay for this convenience. Call today to see if any discounted spots are available!
Absolutely! Roots and Wings Pediatrics is all about convenience. Dr. Sinclair can address many issues without a visit to the office, often just with texts back and forth. When you are out of town, this becomes especially important but even when local, saving a trip to the office can be extremely handy with your busy schedule.
As a former hospitalist at NCH, Dr. Sinclair knows the system and doctors well. While she can’t treat your child while in the hospital, she will follow along with the physicians and assume follow-up care as soon as possible to ensure a safe transition to home.
