Welcome to Fenton Pediatrics!
Fenton Pediatrics, LLC provides comprehensive and personalized health care for infants, children and adolescents. The practice is owned and operated by its physician partners. We lease office space in the St. Anthony’s Urgent Care building but are not owned by or directly affiliated with St. Anthony’s Hospital or any other hospital group. We understand how important good health care is to your child. That is why each child will be treated with care by our comprehensive, knowledgeable doctors, nurse practitioner and staff. We will refer to many different hospitals and specialists in order to facilitate the best possible care for your children.
Should your child become sick or require medical attention phone our office immediately at

Our mission at Fenton Pediatrics is the ease of access, prompt courteous service and responsiveness to our patients’ concerns will always be our primary goal. We realize that patients are the reason we exist and we strive to treat them professionally with compassion, respect and dignity.

EFFECTIVE JANUARY 1, 2018
SICK VISITS VS. WELL VISITS OR BOTH?
SICK VISIT: This is an office visit for an acute problem or flare-up of a chronic problem.
WELL VISIT: This is an office visit for a routine physical exam or yearly health maintenance exam.
SICK/WELL VISIT: This is a combination visit of a routine physical exam where an acute or chronic issue is addressed as well. For example, if you presented today for a well visit and you have an acute or chronic issue that you would like addressed, it is considered a combination visit and must be billed differently than just a well visit or just a sick visit.
WHY IT IS BILLED DIFFERENTLY: It is billed differently to account for the additional work, expertise and time required for a combination visit (additional lab work, x-ray, referrals and/or prescription medications).
HOW THIS AFFECTS ME: Although some insurance companies acknowledge the sick/well visit combination, your insurance company may require you to pay a co-pay or have additional costs applied to your annual deductible.
EFFECTIVE MAY 9, 2018
Due to a substantial increase in last minute cancellations, effective immediately we will now charge a $15.00 fee for each appointment that is not cancelled within 24 hours, so that we can better serve appointment needs to all patients. Thank you for your understanding.
During inclement weather (snow/ice storm) our office may either open late or close early. The safety of our patients and our employees is our main concern. Please call the office to confirm if our office will be open prior to leaving your home on bad weather days.
If you have an emergency, please contact our exchange at (314) 747-7069. For non-urgent calls, please call back when the office is open. If your child must be seen on one of these days, please go to the closest Emergency Room or Urgent Care.
If we delay opening our office in the morning, we may open at noon if road conditions allow. If conditions have not improved sufficiently by noon, we will remain closed for the day.
