Arundel Pediatrics Practice Changes Effective 10/1/22
Dear Families of Arundel Pediatrics P.A.,
I am writing to inform you of some big changes coming to our practice. After 16 wonderful years of building a two office practice, I have decided to make things simpler and split into two separate practices. I am grateful for every single one of you - patients, parents, and staff - that have helped me to build Arundel Pediatrics into all it has become today. That being said, I will be selling the Linthicum location to Dr. Nadia Ansari effective October 1, 2022. As many of you know, she has worked in the Linthicum office for the past 10 years, and has played an essential role in making the Linthicum office what it is today. I know all of our Linthicum patients will be in good hands for many years to come at Linthicum Pediatrics, which will be the new name as of October 1, 2022. We are working closely together to make this change as easy and seamless as possible, and we both look forward to collaborating together to make this happen.
What this means for all of our patients is that you will need to choose which office will be providing your child’s medical care. Patients will no longer be able to go between the two offices for care, as each office will have a separate owner and separate Tax ID number to bill your insurance. As a patient, you will need to notify your insurance carrier for any changes starting on October 1, 2022 for your family. For any appointments scheduled on or after October 1, 2022, the Tax ID number for Arundel Pediatrics (Arnold) is 83-0440024 and the Tax ID number for Linthicum Pediatrics (Linthicum) is 88-1145054.
Both Arundel Pediatrics and Linthicum Pediatrics will be keeping their same staff and providers, the same insurance contracts, the same billers, and the same hours. Linthicum Pediatrics will have a new phone number, 667-888-7337, and a new website and social media (more to come on this later). Saturday office hours and the On Call service will remain the same until 01/01/2023.
Please check our current website, www.arundelpediatrics.com, for updates as we get closer to October 1, 2022 for the latest information on both locations. We will continue to post updated information and more specifics and logistics along the way.
This has been an incredible journey, building up this practice over the past many years - from a brand new small office in Linthicum, to now having two larger, incredible offices that provide such exceptional care to our families. Thank you for entrusting Arundel Pediatrics to care for your family during these years, as it has been a privilege. I am grateful for each and every one of you that has came through our doors.
