Pediatric Primary Care Services for Your Family
At TLC Pediatric & Adolescent Medicine, in association with Nemours, we provide children, from newborns to teens, with compassionate, expert primary care services. Our team values close personal relationships with our patients, and we treat your child, and family, as one of our very own.
TLC Pediatrics is part of the Nemours primary care network called the Children’s Health Alliance (CHA), which means our physicians are among some of the most highly-qualified pediatricians in Central Florida.
Signs, Symptoms, and Illnesses We See
In addition to providing well-child, preventive care like immunizations (vaccines) and health screenings, we treat children with a variety of common symptoms, illnesses, and conditions, such as those listed below.
When Your Child Needs a Specialist
We’re backed by renowned Nemours pediatric specialists from Nemours Children’s Hospital in Lake Nona, (as well as at clinics near downtown Orlando, Lake Mary, and Viera) who treat nearly every condition, including:
We can also help arrange care with any pediatric specialist of your choice outside of the Nemours children’s system.
Making Your Appointment
Being a parent is one of the greatest things in the world. It’s challenging and rewarding – and we’re here to help you every step of the way.
You don’t need a referral to make an appointment, just call our office. When you call, we’ll collect information such as:
- your child’s name and address
- date of birth
- parent phone numbers (home and cell)
- insurance information (including parent social security numbers)
- photo ID
- medical and pharmacy insurance cards
- preferred pharmacy name and phone number
- names and dosage of all medications, including over-the-counter medication, your child is currently taking
- guardianship and custody papers, if a legal guardian rather than a parent accompanies your child
Bring these forms to your first appointment:
- Consent for Vaccination
- Consent to Treat
- Financial Payment Policy
- HIPAA Policy
- New Patient Information Form
- Patient History Form
- Records Request From Previous Physician
Children should be seen for “well-child” check-ups to make sure they’re growing up healthy at:
- 1 to 3 days of birth for breastfed newborns
- within the first 2 weeks after birth
- 1 month
- 2 months
- 4 months
- 6 months
- 9 months
- 1 year
- 15 months
- 18 months
- 2 years
- 2½ years
- 3 years
- 4 years
- around every birthday every year after that
At each visit, we’ll check your child’s growth, development, overall health, and give any recommended routine immunizations.
Walk-In Sick Time Care
For your convenience, we have walk-in sick time available Monday - Friday from 7:30 - 9 a.m. for our established patients. If your child has an acute illness like a sore throat, fever, cough, or other routine condition, you can visit us anytime during these hours without calling ahead.
Please note we provide this service on a first-come, first-serve basis only for routine illness, not for well-child visits, complicated problems, or follow-up visits. Walk-in sick care is provided by available physicians – if you would like to see a specific provider, please call to schedule a sick-child appointment.
Free Meet-and-Greet Sessions for Expecting Parents
We also offer free, 20-minute informational meetings for expectant parents trying to make a choice about their baby’s primary care pediatrician. This is a great time to meet our doctors and staff, see our facility, and learn more about our practice. Meetings are scheduled on Mondays at 1:30 p.m. and Saturdays at 12:30 p.m. Call us to schedule a time that works best for you.
Working Together for Kids
TLC Pediatrics is associated with Nemours, which means we’re part of a primary care network (called the Children’s Health Alliance, or CHA) By being a part of this network, we’re able to give our patients and families added resources for care and education. This doesn’t change the way we operate our practice — it just enhances the care your family receives.
We’ve chosen to associate with Nemours because it's a nationally-recognized children’s health system that provides outstanding pediatric specialty care, research, education, and advocacy (being a voice for children’s health issues). We also share the very same commitment to family-centered care — and pride ourselves in treating every child as one of our own.
As part of the TLC Pediatrics family, you will continue to enjoy the same personal care and attention from Dr. Lacy and his team. And you can continue to receive referrals to any hospital or specialist of your choice.
