FAQs

General Questions

Why should I choose Southdale Pediatrics?

Our team of health care providers are focused on giving your family the very best health care possible each and every day. From well-child visits to allergy consultations, our pediatricians and allergists are board certified experts, and all of our nurses are experienced in pediatrics. We have convenient evening and Saturday morning hours, laboratory and X-ray services on site, and are committed to and passionate about caring for infants, children, adolescents, and allergy patients of all ages.

How long will I have to wait for an appointment if my child is sick?

We strive to provide same-day appointments for ill children. If this is not possible, our doctors and triage nurses will work with you to arrange an alternative to receive prompt and appropriate care.

Are you accepting new patients?

Yes, all of our pediatricians are accepting new patients.

What should I do if my child is sick after hours?

We have extended clinic hours weekday evenings and Saturday mornings. We also have an after-hours nurse line.

How do I get a referral?

If you have questions about a referral to see a specialist or having an imaging study done, please call our referral department at (952) 278-7012. We recommend that you first speak with your insurance company to learn about their requirements—this will help our referral department meet your needs more quickly.

How do I go about finding a pediatrician for my child?

Expectant parents may choose to schedule a “prenatal appointment” where they’ll have an opportunity to meet one of our providers, be introduced to our staff, and familiarize yourself with the office. Visit the expecting parents page for more information.

Parents who are new to our clinics are invited to meet with a provider and learn about our clinic as well. Call the office where you plan to go (Edina, Burnsville, or Eden Prairie), explain that you’re new to our clinic, and ask to make an appointment to meet a provider.

Some families like to make decisions based on recommendations from friends, family members, or neighbors; feel free to ask around about us, we’re confident you’ll like what you hear!

We recommend, in addition to your child’s primary health care provider, that you get to know one or two other pediatricians in our practice for ease and comfort with same-day care appointments.  This way, if your child is ill and your primary physician is unavailable, your family will still see a familiar face at the office.

Questions about Immunizations

At what ages does my child need certain vaccines?

We follow the recommended schedule from the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Centers for Disease Control. Recommended immunizations begin at birth and continue through the adult years. Please don’t hesitate to ask your provider if your child’s vaccines are up to date.

How can I obtain a copy of my child’s immunization record?

To receive a copy of your child’s immunization record, email our medical records department at medicalrecords@southdalepeds.com and they will be happy to mail a copy to you.

*PLEASE NOTE: - Medical Records cannot be emailed.  

                       - The Medical Record department cannot respond by email.

                       - Please provide a contact phone number where you can be reached.
