At Brentwood Pediatrics, our goal is to provide quality medical care to infants, children, and adolescents. We strive to maintain a calm, comfortable environment for examinations of our patients. We provide separate sick and well waiting rooms while endeavoring to minimize waiting time. We have chosen a completely electronic office system for accuracy of information, medical charting, and billing. We accept most insurance plans including BCBS, Cigna, United, Aetna, PHCS, Signature Health, Tricare, Amerigroup, and Americhoice to name the larger networks.
