The Wellness Roundup With Dr. Jill

Thank You For Showing Up and Being On Time!

We’d like to thank all of our families who consistently show up to their appointments and are always on time.   We’d also like to thank our families who call at least two hours in advance to cancel a sick visit and/or twenty-four hours in advance to cancel a well visit. 

Please know that BCD Health Partners has updated its no-show fees to $50.00.  This fee also applies to patients who arrive more than ten minutes late for their sick or well visit.  In this case, the appointment will need be rescheduled so as not to back up our other families who have arrived on time for their appointments.  

Despite untimely vomiting sessions five minutes from the office, cranky toddlers being woken from a nap refusing to get into the car, and having to rearrange work schedules to fit in to one of our available appointment openings, our Rock Star Moms and Dads still manage to get their kiddos here on schedule!  

We are fortunate that no-shows and late arrivals are rare occurrences at Healthy Kids Pediatrics and we appreciate all of your efforts to make that happen!

Dr. Jill and Dr. Namm Contribute to the Collaborative Spirit of Local Pediatricians


Super Bowl Sunday was a great day for local pediatricians as well as Kansas City fans!

Thanks to Dr. Ikbal Tokat and Dr. Molly Thomas from Nuheights Pediatrics, a great group of doctors who all share a strong desire to be the best medical professionals they can be and to provide the best care possible to their patients got together for brunch to share their experiences and learn from one another. 

Dr. Jill and Dr. Namm from Healthy Kids Pediatrics enjoyed meeting with their fellow colleagues and contributing to the collaborative spirit!

Helping the Helper: How To Support Your Teen When They Are Supporting Their Friends

Often times, a well-intended child may need as much support as the friend they are trying to help. Here’s another helpful article from child psychologist, Dr. Tom Gambino! -HKP

5 Ways To Support Your Teen When They Are Supporting Their Friends

1. Collaborate with your teen on healthy boundaries. We do not need to sacrifice our own wellbeing to support someone else.

2. Talk to your teen about their own limitations as a supportive friend. Some situations require help from a professional or outside adult. When we ask for help for our friend, we are being a GREAT friend.

3. Encourage your teen to trust their gut. If your teen is feeling uncomfortable about a situation or concerned for their friend, it may be time to seek outside help.

4. Help your teen accept what is in their control vs out of their control.

5. Praise your teen for their willingness to help a friend and take care of themselves.
