We are pleased to announce our pediatric practice,
Stephen G. Nelson, M.D., P.A., now has a new name:
Coastal Pediatric Care!
You can be rest assured that the same caring, friendly physicians and staff will be ready to assist for your child’s continued needs. Drs. Weinberger, Bharucha, Kim, Banks, and Lopez-McCormack have become trusted in the greater St. Petersburg/Largo area for many years and look forward to caring for your family for many years to come!
What does this mean for your family?
We will continue to have TWO locations to best serve you throughout the week – an “EAST” location at 5601 Dr. MLK Jr. St N (9 th Street) in St. Petersburg and a “WEST” location at 8787 Bryan Dairy Rd (in the Bardmoor Outpatient Care Building). These locations will be open for doctor’s appointments Monday – Friday: 8 am until 5 pm. We will also continue to provide urgent care hours on both Saturday and Sunday, as well as most holidays, at the East location on MLK St. All visits are by appointment only.
You may schedule at any office by calling 727-525-2161.
Does the new name affect my insurance? Are you still my primary care?
Yes! We will still be your primary care provider (pediatrician) as long as one of our physicians – Drs. Alyssa Weinberger, Corrie Bharucha, Jennifer Kim, Elizabeth Banks, or Celia Lopez-McCormack are listed on your card. If your card lists another physician name, you will need to call your insurance to have this changed before your appointment. You may eventually receive any bills with outstanding account balances from Stephen G. Nelson, M.D., P.A. or Coastal Pediatric Care.
Coastal Pediatric Care continues to be a strong proponent of all vaccinations.
If you do not wish to vaccinate your child, our office may not be a good fit for your family. We strive to provide the safest and healthiest environment for all of our patients from infancy to young adulthood! If you have any questions regarding vaccinations, please do not hesitate to make an appointment to discuss them with the physician.
