  Frequently Asked Questions


Why should I join Choice Pediatrics?

As a member of Choice Pediatrics you have total access to your child's pediatrician. One of us is available to you either in the office or by phone 24/7 for any problem your child may be experiencing. When you call Choice Pediatrics you will speak directly to either Dr. Desalu or Dr. Kampert. If we are both with a patient, your call will be returned immediately upon completion of the current appointment. Limiting the number of patients enrolled with our practice enables us to spend extended time with our patients as needed. This will also allow us to see your child at the time and location of your choosing with minimal to no waiting times.


What are the fees and what do they cover?

A membership with Choice Pediatrics is $100/month per child under 8 years of age. Membership fee for children 8 years and older is $75/month. If you entrust more than one of your children's care to us, an additional child age 0-7 years is $75/month, and an additional child age 8-18 years is $50/month. The fees covers extra services that we offer that the insurance companies do not cover. These services will include home or any other location the child may be in the Shreveport Bossier area visits, access to your pediatrician 24/7, and extended office visits with or without your child.


How do I pay?

You may pay annually or monthly. If monthly payments are best, we will arrange for automatic deductions from your debit or credit card. If the annual payment option is selected, a 5% discount will be applied and the fee may be paid by cash, debit or credit card.


Is this a form of insurance?

No. This membership fee covers services not usually covered by your insurance such as house calls, extended appointments, and 24/7 direct phone access to your pediatrician. It only applies to professional services provided by Choice Pediatrics. We still strongly recommend insurance to cover lab tests, immunizations, x-rays, hospital care, medications, and services provided by other physicians or specialists. This is not considered a form of insurance.


What if I no longer wish to be a member?

You may cancel your membership in our practice at any time with no penalty. Membership is always on a voluntary basis.


Do you see patients that do not pay membership fees?

Yes, we do. This is the traditional model we offer on a small scale. You will still have the benefit of the entire visit being with your physician only and phone access to your child's pediatrician. There are no home visits and after hours and weekend services will be limited.
