Feb. 1, 2013 - PRLog -- Pamela A. Paulhus, MD, FAAP, the founder of RTR Pediatrics (www.rtrpediatrics.com; www.facebook.com/RTRPediatrics) at 93 West Street in Danbury, Connecticut, announced that her recently-opened pediatric practice will begin providing walk-in urgent and well care on Monday, February 4, 2013. Dr. Paulhus, who opened her practice in October 2012, is now a participating provider for HUSKY, Anthem Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Aetna, Cigna, United Health Care, and Connecticare.“We believe we are the only primary care pediatric practice in the area to offer on-the-spot walk-in urgent or well-care for patients ranging from infancy to the college years,” stated Dr. Paulhus. Well care includes physical exams for day care, school, sports, school, camp, work, and college.

The practice originated on a self-pay model for those lacking health insurance, and previously did not participate in any health insurance plans. “Initially we did not accept insurances but after we opened, numerous people asked if we would become part of their insurance plan. We spent the past two months getting credentialed with HUSKY as well as five major insurance carriers in Connecticut. We changed our initial model of the practice to accommodate the requests and medical needs of area residents. We also took into account the busy lives of parents and their children, and having a place where you can receive medical care on a walk-in basis just makes everyone’s lives easier. Our existing and prospective patients are thrilled to hear about the upcoming change and its user-friendly convenience. We also realize that some folks like appointments, so they are available by request, and will be honored.”

In creating RTR Pediatrics, Dr. Paulhus, who received her degree from New York Medical College and completed her residency at Yale/New Haven Children’s Hospital, explained,“My initial goal was to serve families whose children lacked health insurance. Very quickly, we realized many patients wanted to see us through their health insurance plans. We also realized that there is a need for walk-in pediatric care, especially well care, and that is a need we are now able to meet. We will continue to reach out to those who lack health insurance.”

Confidential consultations and second opinions are also available to both RTR Pediatrics patients and incoming new patients, and can take place via phone or at the office. Consultations or second opinions via telephone are available locally or globally. “Sometimes someone simply needs a second opinion or consultation,” stated Dr. Paulhus.“Obtaining either should not be difficult or daunting, but sometimes it is because an individual or family just doesn’t know where to start. We make the process easy. This service is available to all regardless of whether they have ever been to our office or not. Being a resident in the Danbury area is not necessary to obtain a second opinion/consultation.” Dr. Paulhus welcomes questions and concerns and stated, “There is no charge to inquire or receive an estimate for this service.” Consultations and second opinions will always, as is true with all of RTR Pediatrics’ services, be kept strictly confidential.”

RTR Pediatrics Founder, Pamela A. Paulhus, MD, FAAP, has been a pediatrician since 1997. She received her medical degree from New York Medical College in 1994 and completed her residency at Yale/New Haven Children’s Hospital three years later. Dr. Paulhus began her medical career in suburban New York and came to the medical community of Danbury in 2005. She has been on national radio and “The Today Show”to discuss health, the healthcare industry and international adoption.

The practice’s name, RTR Pediatrics, was adopted from Dr. Paulhus’ residency at Yale-New Haven Children’s Hospital. On the www.rtrpediatrics.comwebsite, she explained that, “When a patient was going to be admitted to the hospital from the ER, the interns and residents would keep an eye on the big dry erase board that contained their patient’s name, diagnosis, and their ward. Many things had to be coordinated before the patient could leave the ER and head upstairs. Once all was in place, a big red RTRwas written signifying READY TO ROLL. Adopting the abbreviation all those years ago, Dr. Paulhus continues to ask family members and friends if they’re RTR when it’s time to head to work, school, the beach, etc. RTR was the perfect name for her new practice, especially after her full recovery from a car accident, and a joyous return to medicine.

Walk-in urgent or well care can be received at RTR Pediatrics at 93 West Street in Danbury during regular office hours of Mondays 10 am to 6 pm, Tuesdays 10 am to 7 pm, Thursdays 1:00 to 5:00 pm, and Fridays 10 am to 5:00 pm. Hours will be expanded as the practice continues to grow. RTR Pediatrics can be reached at 203.628.7891.
