We accept most private health insurance plans (including UnitedHealthcare, Aetna, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Healthlink, and Cigna), Tricare, and Illinois Medicaid.
As we establish our new office, if we are not yet in network with your plan, we can still see your kids. You can discuss this with our staff when you schedule an appointment.
“FAAP” stands for Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics and indicates that both Dr. Johnston and Dr. Ponciroli are Board Certified in General Pediatrics. Board certification is a voluntary process that goes above and beyond state licensing requirements for practicing medicine. It is an ongoing commitment by a physician to continually expand their knowledge in a medical specialty like pediatrics. Once pediatricians are certified, they must continue to demonstrate learning through a formal Maintenance of Certification program if they want to remain certified. Therefore, not all pediatricians are board certified.
Pediatricians know about the diseases, symptoms and developmental standards that are specific to children from birth, through adolescence and into adulthood. Maintaining good health -- and addressing the illnesses and conditions that threaten health -- often is not the same in children as in adults. Board certified pediatricians demonstrate their participation in ongoing learning and show how they can apply quality improvement in the care of their patients.
There is value, not only in seeing a physician who understands the medical needs of infants, children and adolescents, but who also becomes familiar with your child’s growth, development and health patterns and with your concerns as a parent. The long-lasting relationship that develops between your child and her or his pediatrician is an important component of your child’s care and wellness.
