Candlewood Valley Pediatrics

Welcome to Candlewood Valley Pediatrics! Founded in 1988, our practice is committed to providing quality, family-oriented care in a friendly and compassionate environment. We believe each child we touch is unique and deserves individualized care and respect. We are a team that is dedicated to going beyond what is expected to enhance your family's well being.

Candlewood Valley Pediatrics is pleased to announce an all new online “Patient Portal” for our patients to enhance your ability to communicate with us securely and on the web. 



Flu Clinics

Our flu clinics with the VNA are done for this year. CVP will be offering two more clinics:

Please call our office to schedule your appointment.

Important Changes to Prescription Regulations

State of CT regulations have changed for 2016 regarding the prescribing of controlled substances. For our patients, most ADHD medications (stimulants) fall into this category. Our prescribing practices have had to change accordingly. Please contact our office to discuss how these regulations will affect your child regarding refills of medications.

Candlewood Valley Pediatrics Announces New Online Patient Portal!

While much of the healthcare industry has been slow to adopt electronic medical record (EHR) technology, in 2007, Candlewood Valley Pediatrics began implementing an EHR system.  Currently, almost all of our daily patient encounters are in electronic format. We are continuously seeking ways to embrace the benefits of our system. For example, we are proud to announce the launch of our innovative new patient portal. 

The secure patient portal will allow you to

      1. request an appointment
      2. request prescription refills
      3. pay your bill or ask a question about your bill
      4. request a referral
      5. ask a nurse a non-urgent routine question and
      6. receive lab and test results

all at a time when it is convenient for you. (New features will continue to be added in the future.) 

We believe that our secure patient portal will help us to continue our tradition of going beyond what is expected to enhance your family’s experience with us.  Sign up today - click on the "Patient Portal" button at the top of this page.
