JDC is currently accepting newborns into the practice. However, so that we can continue to offer our existing patients the care and attention that they deserve, JDC is no longer accepting families with existing children who wish to transfer their care from another practice. This will remain in effect until further notice.

Previously the HPV vaccine was given as a 3-dose series for all eligible-aged children. Now only 2 doses are recommended for children age 9 through 14, with the doses separated by at least 6 months. Children who begin HPV vaccination at 15 years of age and older will still need 3 doses. We will send a reminder call to you when your child is due for their next dose.

Patients’ Rights and Responsibilities Policy

1. Statement of policy

The physicians and staff of JDC Pediatrics share a common philosophy: Patients are to be treated not simply as customers but as partners working together to keep you healthy. We will do all we can to deliver you the best quality of medical care and a pleasant patient experience. But we will also count on you to play your part in making our collaboration a success.

2. Purpose of policy

JDC has created this Policy to lay the groundwork for establishing and maintaining the best possible relationship with its patients, to set forth our expectations, and to inform you of and protect your rights and responsibilities as a patient in accordance with a U.S. law called the 1998 Patients’ Bill of Rights Act, (copies of which are posted in prominent areas throughout the JDC Pediatrics facility where patients can easily see them).
