As a parent, you know visits to the pediatrician are simply a part of life. You trust that your child’s physician will know what’s best for your child based on his or her individual healthcare needs. That’s why Dr. Melissa Asgaonkar started a new kind of pediatric practice in Southlake, Texas. “I founded Arbor Pediatrics based on the belief that long-term relationships, continuity of care, and open communication are crucial to great pediatric care for all children,” Dr. Asgaonkar explains.
Dedicated to Getting to Know You and Your Child
Dr. Asgaonkar (or “Dr. A” as many call her) is on a mission to establish the traditional strong doctor-patient relationship from days gone by, while providing the latest, most effective modern medical care to her young patients. “I want to truly get to know my patients and I want them to know and think of me as their doctor,” she says.
Certified by the American Board of Pediatrics and with years of experience in private practice, she is well-qualified to address any pediatric healthcare concerns your child may have. Truly getting to know your child and his or her unique needs requires that parents think of her as their first line of defense, or first call, when a concern comes up. “If parents call me first rather than visiting an urgent care clinic when something troubling comes up, it allows me to provide greater continuity of care and to understand and identify any patterns that arise,” Dr. A explains.
Open, Accessible, and Friendly
One essential factor that enhances Dr. A in building these strong relationships is her commitment to being both accessible and convenient for parents. Arbor Pediatrics has a physician on call 24/7/365, so you never have to wait to talk to a healthcare professional about an urgent issue. When the office is closed and your child has a healthcare issue that simply cannot wait until morning, you can actually text Dr. A until 10 PM. After that, there’s a nurse triage line that will address your concerns between 10 PM and 6 AM. That’s true accessibility and open communication.
Upon visiting the office, you and your child will immediately feel relaxed in the warm, friendly and inviting space specifically designed to help young patients feel comfortable. You’ll receive undivided attention during your private visit with Dr. A as she listens compassionately to any concerns and answers questions.
A Partner and Advocate
Arbor Pediatrics is designed to operate as a small, private practice where little patients receive comprehensive, individualized, and thoughtful care. As a parent, you need a pediatrician who acts as your partner. As a patient, your child deserves a pediatrician who acts as his or her advocate. “By offering exceptional care with compassionate service, we hope to have a positive impact on the lives of those we know and serve for years to come,” says Dr. A. What more could you want for your child?
