Lactation Help at Healthy Kids Pediatrics in Frisco, TX

The most common reason for unsuccessful breastfeeding is poor latch due to lip or tongue tie.

All our providers are skilled in the assessment of this issue.

Our Nurse Practitioner, Stephanie, is able to perform simple tongue tie release in office.

Stephanie is also a certified lactation consultant and is available for appointments for our breastfeeding moms.

Stephanie would love to answer any questions you have and help our moms become comfortable and successful with breastfeeding their new babies.

Some procedures can be a bit more involved and if needed, we will refer you to a specialist.

Call 972-294-0808 to schedule your lactation appointment.

Telehealth Appointments at Healthy Kids Pediatrics, Frisco

We are excited to announce that beginning in February, 2018, Healthy Kids Pediatrics will be offering telehealth appointments to all our patients.

These appointments can be done from your office, on the go or from the comfort of your own home.

Telehealth appointments will be for:

Telehealth Photo

  • Lab reviews
  • Follow up appointments
  • Medication discussions & any advice required
  • Chronic conditions and concerns

In the past we have utilized a triage nurse to answer patient questions. However going forward, we will no longer be answering questions via phone call but with an actual live video appointment with one of our providers.

Please note that this includes emails sent to the office. You may of course send an email with questions to the office and a telehealth appointment will be scheduled for you.

Please contact your insurance companies to see if telehealth is a covered benefit with your insurance plan. This is not something we can check for you, you will have to look into your benefits via phone call or online.

Telehealth appointments will be billed to your insurance.

If you are a self-pay patient, you will be able to pay for the appointment online through our epayments section of our patient portal. (epayments will be available in February).

Dr. Bain and our other providers will NOT be conducting sick or well child appointments via telehealth. At HKP we believe that we need to physically be able to see, assess and examine your children if they are not feeling well, as they may require further testing. They will, however answer any questions you may have regarding medications or advice needed via telehealth.

You must have signed up for our patient portal to be able to have a tele-health appointment. You can download the Healow app to your phone or can access Healow through the patient portal when it is time for your appointment.

Please note your child must also have been seen within the last 6 months in our office to be able to conduct a telehealth appointment.

Dr. Bain Introduces the Physician Assistant at Healthy Kids Pediatrics: Amy Speer

 

I wantedDr . Bain to take this opportunity to share with you a little about our Physician Assistant, Amy Speer.  She has been a welcome addition to the Healthy Kids Pediatrics team. Her skills, training and expertise are a natural complement to what I desire to accomplish through Functional Medicine while allowing us to extend more personalized care to all our patients.

 

Amy graduated with a Bachelor of Science in PA Studies from UTMB Galveston, is NCCPA certified and is currently studying for her Boards in Functional Medicine. Working in many medical environments including Family Practice, has given Amy the opportunity to work with a large variety of patients.

 

Amy shares that prior to her joining the staff at Healthy Kids Pediatrics her two children were patients of Dr. Bain's. She felt led to join Healthy Kids Pediatrics after I found the root of her son's underlying health concerns, made some changes to his treatment plan which made such improvement in her son's medical coAmy -speerncerns. Always, the learner, she recognized that joining the staff would also complement what she was already learning through her Functional Medical courses and allow her to put that knowledge to good work assisting our patients to achieve wellness and good health. We found that our philosophies were very much the same and the rest is history. 

 

Amy enjoys working out, cooking, crafting, reading and learning about all of the interesting things that come up over the course of the day like essential oils, homeopathy, etc.
