Our Philosophy
We are dedicated to the inner strength of families and the preciousness of each child. We feel the role of the pediatrician and the pediatric nurse practitioner is to provide the highest quality health care, to assist parents in the task of encouraging their child's development and to be advocates for the health and safety of all children from newborn to young adult.

 Office News:      March

Dr. Stephen Jurak is retiring, April 1, after 20+ years of practice at Comprehensive Pediatrics.  We wish him the best as he moves on to the next adventures in his life with his family.  Dr. Jurak has enriched the lives of many patients and families, and we will all miss him very much.

A charge of $50.00 will be assessed to your account if you "no show " for an appointment. This is not covered by insurance.

Minors under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or legal representative to every visit.  Consent forms to treat a minor in the absence of the parent or legal guardian can be found on the insurance link.  Written documentation is required before a minor can be seen.


If your child is 18 years of age or older, an authorization to release  medical information must be on file in the chart or we cannot discuss medical information over the phone with the parent.  These forms are available on the insurance link.

Medication Refills

Requests for medication refills will be phoned to your pharmacy or will be ready for pickup within 24 hours of the request.  Refills are not done on the weekends. A nurse will contact you to confirm the medication and dosage. Medication cannot be refilled without this information.

Refills for long term medications require a follow up every three months and a yearly physical. This includes medications for asthma and ADD/ADHD.

If you use a mail order pharmacy, we do NOT fax refill requests or new prescription orders.  You need to mail any prescription, so plan accordingly to receive your medicine on time.



Forms for school, sports, camp etc. requiring an MD signature, can only be filled out if your child has had a physical within the last year. All forms must include the child's name and date of birth.  If the form is for medication, please include the medication requested on the form, failure to provide this information will delay completion of the form. Please allow 5-7 days if you are dropping off a form to be filled out.  d
