Please watch for an email from ConfirmAppt@SierraPeds.com towards the end of September.  Our goal is to move your current appointment(s) to the Renown scheduling system.  However, there might be some changes to the doctor’s work schedule.  We will reach out to you via ConfirmAppt@SierraPeds.com if we are unable to move your appointment(s).  You can also call 982-5437 (KIDS) after October 1, 2021 to confirm your appointment(s).  If there are any changes, we will post them here on our website.

 

How do I request my child(ren)’s medical record(s)?

You can upload yourself or request your child(ren)’s medical record(s) via the patient portal prior to October 1, 2021.  Record requests received prior to October 1, 2021 will be uploaded to the patient portal, and then you will receive an email.  You will be able to access the patient portal to download your child(ren)’s medical record(s) until October 31, 2021.

For medical record(s) requests after October 1, 2021 your child(ren)’s record(s) will be maintained by a third-party custodian of records.  The contact information will be posted here on our website.  The third-party custodian of records will charge $25.00 whether you request one page for a vaccine record or an entire chart.
