Congratulations. Having a baby is one of the most rewarding and challenging experiences in your life. Professional Association for Pediatrics (PAFP) looks forward to years of providing care and support to your family. You'll want to check out some specifics by clicking here.
Our practice is associated with Hendrick Health System and Abilene Regional.
Families can schedule ‘get-acquainted’ visits; however, these are not required to become part of PAFP’s practice.
Whether your first visit to our practice is for a newborn, toddler or adolescent care, please take the time to fill out our new patient forms located in our forms/policies section. We ask that you arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment and bring your current insurance card with you. You can also print and complete our New Patient Health Questionnaire here. This will help expedite your insurance verification and make your office visit more efficient.
We encourage all visits to our office to be by appointment only. Illness visits are scheduled as needed, even the same day. Well child checks should be scheduled 4-6 weeks in advance. Extended consultation times are available for more complicated problems. Certain days of the week and times of the day are ‘peak’ times when the office will nearly always be busy.
