Annual Wellness Visits

Most insurance covers an Annual Wellness Visit (AWV) at no cost to you, in fact many plans also provide you rewards or premium discounts if you complete an AWV. A child’s AWV encompasses the school required Sports Physical and much more, and is also usually 100% covered by insurance. Click here for more information about Sports Physicals.

Please bring any required wellness forms (Health Risk Assessment, Biometric Profile, School form, etc.) to your wellness visit. The focus of an Annual Wellness Visit is promoting wellness while identifying and addressing risks to prevent illness or injury.

This includes:

  • A health screening discussion
  • A risk review – General health counseling
  • A physical exam
  • Appropriate screening labs
  • Reviewing and updating vaccinations
  • Counseling on diet and exercise.

Your age, general health, and risk factors are utilized to determine any appropriate additional evaluation or testing.

Not included in Wellness Visit:
Acute illness or chronic conditions and associated medication refills require a separate visit. We will be happy to schedule a separate appointment to address those needs at the front desk after your wellness visit.

Same-Day Visit

Our scheduling system is a modified open access design. What this means to patients is that you can get an appointment when you need it, today or in the future. At the beginning of each day, there are always many available visits for that day. If you call first thing in the morning and want to be seen on the same day, we will make you an appointment for that day. The later you call, the more likely those visits will not be available. If you call after all of the same day appointments are taken, then our triage nurse will assist in determining if you need to be seen urgently that day. We still have the capability of working in urgent cases. Our system allows for a great deal of flexibility in an effort to accommodate you.

Our goal is to get you in with your doctor as soon as you want or need.

Please keep in mind that if you are calling to ask if you should schedule an appointment, then the answer is usually yes! Trust your judgment. You wouldn’t call if there was not a significant problem or concern. If you leave a message for the nurse to ask about coming in, it will delay getting you the appointment that you need.

Minor Surgery

We are equipped and staffed to do some minor surgeries in the office including:

  • Skin biopsies
  • Minor laceration repairs
  • Incision and Drainage of Abscesses
  • Ingrown toenail removal

Lab Draws

In partnership with Clinical Pathology Labs (CPL), Cedar Park Pediatric & Family Medicine has a full-time CPL phlebotomist in the clinic, offering several benefits for patients:

  1. Almost any blood work/labs can be drawn in our office.
  2. Labs for our patients can be drawn in our office even when a patient is not due for an office visit.
  3. Most insurances are contracted with CPL.
  4. Less chance for error and delay.
  5. Less chance for billing errors.

Because of the quality of their services, we have utilized CPL for the majority of our patients’ lab work since the day our clinic opened. The recent arrangement with CPL demonstrates our combined effort to provide patients quality service and convenience.

For more information about CPL, please see their website, http://www.cpllabs.com/
To avoid delaying patient care and long waits, we do require a lab appointment to be set for lab draws. There is no copay associated with lab draws, CPL will bill your insurance company with the information that you provide us at the time of your visit. For some insurance plans, Cedar Park Pediatric & Family Medicine is required to bill for some in-house lab work. If you are unsure of your coverage, please discuss it with our billing department.

Spirometry/ Asthma Care

We offer the convenience of in-office lung function testing (spirometry) for patients with breathing difficulty or specific diseases. Some indications of the need for spirometry include:

  • Asthma
  • COPD/Emphysema
  • Shortness of breath
  • Wheezing
  • Persistent cough

Spirometry is performed under various conditions with the patient breathing into a tube attached to the machine, which calculates the amount of air the lungs can hold and the rate that air can be inhaled and exhaled. The results of the test are compared with those of healthy individuals of similar height and age, and of the same sex and race.

EKG

Alternative Names: Electrocardiogram; EKG; ECG

An electrocardiogram (ECG) is a test that records the electrical activity of the heart.
An ECG is used to measure the rate and regularity of heartbeats as well as the size and position of the chambers, the presence of any damage to the heart, and the effects of drugs or devices used to regulate the heart.


How the test is performed?

You are asked to lie down, and electrodes are affixed to each arm and leg and to your chest. This requires cleaning the site and, if necessary, shaving or clipping hair. The standard number of leads attached is 12 to 15 for a diagnostic ECG but may be as few as 3 to 5 for a monitoring procedure.
You are usually required to remain still, and you may be asked to hold your breath for short periods during the procedure. Sometimes this test is performed while you are exercising or under minimal stress to monitor changes in the heart. This type of ECG is often called a stress test.
The results are recorded on graph paper.


Why is an ECG performed?

An ECG is very useful in determining whether a person has heart disease. If a person has chest pain or palpitations, an ECG is helpful in determining if the heart is beating normally. If a person is on medications that may affect the heart or if the patient is on a pacemaker, an ECG can readily determine the immediate effects of changes in activity or medication levels. There are many factors that can affect the functioning of the heart and this is one step in evaluating possible cardiac symptoms.

Exercise Stress Test

We offer the convenience of in-office exercise stress testing for appropriate patients. Each individual needs to be evaluated by his or her physician to determine if testing is necessary. Symptoms or conditions that may prompt stress testing include:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest or abdominal discomfort
  • Nausea/Dizziness
  • Fatigue or lack of stamina
  • Family history of heart disease
  • High cholesterol
  • Sleeping disorders
  • Diabetes

A person taking the test

  1. is hooked up to equipment to monitor the heart.
  2. walks slowly in place on a treadmill (or pedals slowly on a stationary bike). Then the speed is increased for a faster pace and the treadmill (or bike) is tilted to produce the effect of going up a small hill.
  3. may be asked to breathe into a tube for a couple of minutes.
  4. can stop the test at any time if needed.
  5. afterwards will sit or lie down to have his or her heart and blood pressure checked.

Testimonials

  • We love Dr. Moore, she is so good with kids and very encouraging, warm, and supportive. My daughter loves her and she is very thorough. We have also had Dr. Keegan a couple times, she was sweet and naturally discerning at figuring out what was wrong, which was helpful for the couple of times we saw her for sick visits when we couldn't get in to see Dr. Moore. Every DR we have seen (even LeBas once) is highly capable of providing the best care. We also love the front office staff, too! They always seem interested in how my daughter is doing and I never have billing problems (huge bonus)

  • Been going to this clinic about 7 years and it keeps getting better and better! Actually, I would not change clinics for anything because I get the best care possible right where I am. I recommended that my best friend start going there also and he loves it as much as I do. I drive from RR to get there and it's worth every mile!

  • I saw Ashley Mott for an appointment this week and she was AMAZING! I got in the same day I called and she was so nice! Her bed side manner was great and she made me feel so comfortable. I was able to talk to her as if I was talking to a friend and she really listened and helped me figure out a couple issues I was having. I highly recommend her. My daughter also sees Dr. Keegan and we love her as well. I call a lot about my daughters allergies and her nurse never makes me feel like I am a bother ( although I am certain I am annoying at times). We love the vista ridge location as it is so close to our home!

  • Wait time is almost non existent which is extremely rare and the entire staff from the ladies at the front desk to the Doctors are friendly, knowledgeable and caring. This puts the patient completely at ease so as not to dread visits ad delay treatment recommended. I would advise anyone looking for medical care to contact them.

  • Jessica
  • The personnel here are helpful and responsive. Have never waited too long when an appointment is scheduled. The one time I needed an appointment on short notice they saw me. Would definitely recommend them.

    Al
  • I absolutely love the service here. Dr. LaBas is one of the best pediatricians I have ever had for my kids. He is authentic, truly cares about his patients.

    Norma
  • It took our family a lomg time to find a pediatrician that we really felt comfortable with for our daughter. From the first appt we came to at CPPFM, we knew this was the one. Everyone has been so friendly at both offices and we have been very grateful for that. Dr. Moore has been outstanding in all regards and we loved working with her over the past 4 years. She is so encouraging, professional, and caring. We have had two more children since we began coming here and all of our kids love her as well. She talks to our children and asks them questions, as well as talking to my husband and I. She always makes sure any our concerns are addressed and is available for us when we have concerns outside of our appts. We have moved twice in the past 2 years, more than 300 miles away, but we have loved her and the office staff so much, that we have kept them as our primary doctors and make the well worth travel back to see them. The office is very accommodating and has a very flexible schedule, which helps us tremendously. We have almost never had to wait for our appts, and if we have, it was never very long. The office staff has been very helpful and knowledgeable also. Any time we have had questions about our insurance coverage, they have been quick to answer and have been accurate on the info they gave us. It is very important for me and my family to have a doctor and office staff that we trust and feel comfortable seeing for our medical needs. I know we have found at here and we have no intentions on ever changing!
