Updated Face Mask Policy
Masking for well visits at Hilliard Pediatrics is now optional for patients, parents, and staff. We will continue to ask anyone over the age of 2 with respiratory/ill symptoms (or families of children with ill symptoms) to wear a mask while in the office, including during morning sick hours. We look forward to seeing your faces again!
Welcome to Hilliard Pediatrics!
Welcome to Hilliard Pediatrics!
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.
Walk-In Hour Process - Please check-in from your car
When you arrive at our office, please sign-up using the following link: Walk-In Registration. You will remain in your car and a staff member will call to check you in over the phone. In order to be as fair as possible, walkins now have geofencing which will require you to be at the office and share your location in order to register.
Please note walk-in volumes have been extremely high. We are doing our best to see as many patients as we can, but have needed to close walk-ins due to volume many days. If you would like a guaranteed appointment, please call during regular hours, 9am - 5pm M-F and leave a message for our nurses and they will get you scheduled.
New RSV Monoclonal Antibody - Beyfortus
This year there is a new drug that can help protect infants from respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), Beyfortus. It is not a vaccine, but rather a preventive drug that offers passive immunity. To learn more about this new drug along with details on who it is recommended for and insurance coverage, please visit our dedicated page here.
Updated COVID-19 Vaccine Information
The FDA and the ACIP have both approved the new COVID-19 vaccine for use and are recommending everyone 6 months and odler to get an updated COVID-19 vaccine. As a result of the approval by ACIP on 9/12/23, the previously approved vaccines are no longer authorized for use. We are ordering Moderna COVID-19 vaccines and do not yet have an estimated shipment date. Please note that this vaccine is no longer provided by the government so insurance companies will need to add it to their list of covered vaccines and some companies may not cover the vaccine. While we are waiting for the vaccine to arrive, we recommend checking with your insurance company to see if they will be covering the vaccine.
2023 Flu Vaccine Clinic Schedule
Our flu vaccines have arrived and we will be starting our vaccine clinics mid-September. With the anticipated arrival of a new COVID-19 vaccine around October, we will not be scheduling any COVID-19 vaccines at this time. Once more details become available on the new COVID-19 vaccine and anticipated arrival date, we will open clinic slots for those vaccines as well. We currently have both flu shot and FluMist available. Please note FluMist is given on a first come, first served basis and cannot be reserved.
Again this year, we are offering vaccine clinics that are by appointment only. In addition to the scheduled clinics, your child may also receive their vaccine at a regularly scheduled appointment or at a sibling appointment. Please note that flu vaccines are not able to be given during walk-ins or scheduled as a nurse visit. To schedule an appointment please call the office at 614-777-1800, opt 2 or you can now also text 614-500-4045 with your child(ren)'s name, DOB, and preferred clinic date and time.

2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)
We are proud to say that we continue to see well and sick children in our office, including those who require evaluation or testing for COVID-19. For more information please visit our COVID-19 page here.
Walk-In Hours: Once you have arrived at our office, click the following link: Walk-In Registration. You will then wait in your car until a member of our staff calls you to check you in over the phone. As a reminder, our walk-ins are first come, first served so we recommend arriving close to 8am.

Expecting a Baby?
Congratulations! Choosing a pediatrician for your child is a very important decision. Before your baby arrives, we recommend scheduling a prenatal visit. These informal group sessions allow you to meet one of our providers, obtain information about our practice, and receive answers to your questions. To learn more or to schedule a prenatal visit, click here.
We are in the process of making changes to our patient portal. For more details on these changes as well as a step-by-step guide to set up the Healow App, please click the following link: Patient Portal
The CDC has created an isolation and exposure calculator to help determine if you need to isolate or take other steps to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Please note this tool does not take into account children that are too young or unable to wear a mask. If your child is unable to properly wear a mask, they should quarantine for 10 days post exposure. Additionally, the CDC recommends testing on day 5 post exposure if you are still symptom free. If you would like to test, this should be done with an at-home test. We are not scheduling appointments for asymptomatic COVID-19 testing in our office.

Walk-In Hours Details
We do not offer walk-ins on Saturdays.
Walk-in Hours: 8:00 am - 9:00 am
You must register for walk-ins when you arrive and remain in your car until a staff member calls to check you in over the phone.
These visits are for "acute" issues that can be readily evaluated during our walk-in hours such as sore throat, 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 if appointments are still available.
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 used in place of regular well exams or sick appointments when needed.
Monday - Friday 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Saturday - Call us starting at 9:00 am to book a SAME DAY SICK appointment. During the summer (Memorial Day - Labor Day) our phones are only on from 9:00am - 10:00am on Saturdays.
Our phones come on at 9:00 am Monday - Saturday and are off for lunch from 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm Monday - Friday.
