At Hilliard Pediatrics, we believe in treating each child as an individual. We strive to maximize each child's health within their unique circumstances. We strive to offer excellent care and advice when your child is sick or well.
Due to COVID-19 and in order to keep our patients, parents and staff as saff as possible, we will be doing scheduled appointments only for our flu vaccine clinics. We are currently offering clinics on Saturday mornings and select Thursday evenings. We are not scheduling any flu vaccine appointments during regular office hours. This will help us to follow social distancing guidelines and minimize time spent in the office.
We ask that everyone age 2 and above please wear a mask when entering the office for the flu vaccine clinics. If anyone is running a fever of 100.4 or higher, has COVID-19 symptoms, or has been told to quarantine due to a known COVID-19 exposure, please call to reschedule your flu vaccine clinic appointment.
Please call the front desk (option 2) to schedule your child's flu vaccine clinic appointment. As a reminder, our phones are on Monday - Friday from 9am to 12pm and 1:30pm to 5pm. Appointments are required this year and we cannot do walk-in appointments at this time. If you have a well check appointment scheduled for your child in September or October, we will administer your flu vaccine at the scheduled appointment. If any siblings need their vaccine, please bring them to this appointment and they can receive their vaccine at that time.
Below is a copy of the vaccine information sheets for the flu shot. We will also have copies available at our flu vaccine clinics if you would like a paper copy. We are unfortunately out of our supply for FluMist for this season, but still have plenty flu shot doses remaining.
Please be advised that we have suspended our walk-in hours until further notice. Our phones will remain off until 9am as per our usual schedule. Please call our office at 614-777-1800 and press option 1 to speak to a nurse to discuss whether or not your child needs seen for any non-well visit related concerns.
We all recognize that this is a very challenging time. Our community is understandably concerned about Coronavirus. We would like to reassure our patients and families that the entire staff at Hilliard Pediatrics is taking multiple steps to keep your children, your family, and our staff safe. Below is a list of some of the steps we are taking to help ensure everyone's safety.
The American Academy of Pediatrics is encouraging families to maintain routine well care during the COVID-19 pandemic. In-person, routine well child visits are still recommended for all children at this time. Out of an abundance of caution, we have designated well care areas that are separate from our rooms being used to treat patients with fever, cough and sore throat.
We have developed a new sick visit protocol for patients with illness symptoms such as fever, cough, or sore throat. For these visits, patients will enter and leave the office through a separate door from our regular visits .
We are confident that we are still able to provide excellent medical care to our patients and are asking you to help us ensure the safest environment possible. When you come into the office, we are asking our families to do the following:
Hilliard Pediatrics has been a part of the community for 30 years. A pillar of this success has been the long-term relationships with our patients and their families. The entire staff welcomes your questions and want to assist you as we all work through this uncertain and unprecedented time.
The coronavirus/COVID-19 outbreak and the news about it is changing every day. Primary care offices are NOT currently able to test for the virus and will NOT be able to test anytime soon.
If you or your child believe you have coronavirus based on symptoms, exposure, or travel history, it is not safe for others to have you enter a medical office, urgent care or clinic as you might under usual circumstances.
This illness is largely affecting adults much more than children. It is much less likely a child will become very ill (which with COVID-19 means breathing difficulty) from the virus.
Try to stay calm. Wash your hands. Stay away from others who might be ill. If you are ill, stay away from elderly or those whose immune systems who might not work properly.
Stay safe and healthy!

We do not offer walk-ins on Saturdays.
Walk-in Hours: Cancelled until further notice
These visits are for "acute" issues that can be readily evaluated during our walk-in hours such as sore troat, earache, pink eye, cough, and a rash. Headaches, stomach aches, chronic coughs, and other complex issues are best dealt with at a scheduled appointment.
Walk-ins are busiest on Mondays and Fridays, especially during the cold and flu season from December through March. Patients are seen on a first come first served basis, so you can maximize your chances of being seen by arriving close to 8:00 am. Those patients that are unable to be seen will be scheduled for a sick appointment later in the day.
Through our patient portal, you can access your child's immunization history, request prescription refills, pay your bill, and send non-urgent medical questions.
Our physicians have created protocols to assist you with information related to pediatric care. Please note that this website and the protocols listed are for reference only and are not intended to be sued in place of regular well exams or sick appointments when needed.
Monday - Friday 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Saturday 9:30 am - 12:00 pm. Call us starting at 9:00 am to book a SAME DAY SICK appointment.
Our phones come on at 9:00 am Monday - Saturday and are off for lunch from 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm.
We are closed for the following holidays:
