REQUESTING AN APPOINTMENT
Bright Oaks Pediatric Center offers same day appointments when available. We ask that you call the office during business hours to schedule. If you are planning on a relative or babysitter bringing your child to the appointment, please complete the Consent for Treatment of a Minor, which can be found in the Information and Forms tab of the website. If you do not have access to a printer, please complete a dated and signed letter giving permission for this individual to bring your child to his or her appointment and for treatment authorization.
The patient portal is a powerful tool allowing you to actively participate in your child’s care. From the portal you can: print immunization records, review growth charts, request prescription refills, communicate non-urgent messages, and fill out surveys to help prepare for your child’s upcoming check-ups.

OUR TAKE ON VACCINES
At Bright Oaks Pediatric Center, we strive to provide the best care that is based on the most up-to-date and accurate literature for our patients and families. In order to do this, we ask that all of our patients receive the recommended immunizations based on the guidelines by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and The American Academy of Pediatrics.
While we respect ones choice to not vaccinate, we feel we would be doing a disservice to our patients and community, and feel uncomfortable as a practice caring for children who do not receive these recommended immunizations.
Vaccines are a simple and easy way to prevent deadly illnesses and diseases. We ask that should you have questions or concerns regarding immunizations, ask your child’s healthcare provider. Unfortunately, there is a lot of misinformation on the internet, as anyone can publish or post an article. When researching, ensuring you are looking at reputable and quality resources, such as information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or the American Academy of Pediatrics.
We look forward to caring of your child(ren) at Bright Oaks!
