Policies & Forms
Welcome to Pediatric Associates of York Hospital: We appreciate the opportunity to provide your child with the highest quality pediatric care and share in the growth of your child. Our York and Wells office are open Monday through Friday, 9:00am to 5:00pm. Please be prepared to present your current insurance card and to verify your address and phone number(s) at each visit.
Patients are seen by appointment only. If you have an emergency after normal office hours, call 207-351-1710 or 207-641-6555 to speak to our answering service who will then page the physician on call.
If your insurance requires you to receive a referral to see a specialist, you must allow us three (3) business days to complete the appropriate form(s) prior to obtaining service. Only emergency referrals will be completed on the same day. If requested, and approved by this practice, we will issue a retroactive referral, but there is NO GUARANTEE that it will be honored by your insurance company. Our placement of any referral does not guarantee payment from your insurance company; you must understand how your insurance policy works. If you are unsure, contact them.
We are available every day for acute sick visits and preventive care visits should be scheduled six to eight weeks in advance. If you prefer a specific provider, please be sure to let us know so that we can accommodate you. Please keep in mind that acute care for the same day may require you to see whichever provider is available. Acute care visits will be scheduled on the same day. Problems that require IMMEDIATE attention are best addressed in an emergency room setting or at a York Hospital walk-in facility.
We do ask for 48 hours notice when calling to refill a prescription. In order to delay your wait time, please contact your pharmacy to confirm if the prescription is ready to be picked up. All prescriptions that require a written prescription will only be refilled during office hours.
Medical records are a vital part of being able to provide quality healthcare for you and your child. Please be sure you have requested your child’s medical records to be released to this office prior to your first visit here. If you are unable to have your child’s complete medical record transferred prior to your visit, please be sure you have his or her updated immunization record with you.
HIPAA are the federal guidelines that have been established for the privacy of your health records. Pediatric Associates of York Hospital will not share any information from your child’s health records without your specific permission, with the exception of your child’s daycare, school, or other physician’s office in which we will forward immunization records, current physical examination dates, and any physician notes or labs that may directly pertain to the referral of your child to another physician by one of our practitioners to assist in the treatment of your child.

Dr. James Stuart, Surgery Associates of York Hospital, has been on staff here in York since January of 1974. While the “usual” background information regarding his education and medical training
is interesting to know, even more interesting is the institutional history and the anecdotal information that Dr. Stuart has stored up the sleeves of his white coat after more than four decades of being a provider and a caregiver at York Hospital! We would like to take this opportunity to share a bit of both types of information. Dr. Stuart received his BA from Albion College in Albion, Michigan, and his MD from | Wayne State University College of Medicine in Detroit, Michigan. He completed a Rotating Internship at Maine Medical Center in Portland, Maine and a Residency in General Surgery, also at Maine Medical Center. Dr. Stuart is Certified by the American Board of Surgery and is a Fellow at the American College of Surgeons.
Back in the 1970s when Dr. Stuart joined York Hospital, there were no ambulances for the hospital. The local undertaker transported patients to the hospital in a vehicle similar to a modern hearse. When ambulances did start being used to transport patients to York Hospital, it was Dr. Stuart who trained the first EMTs riding on the ambulances. In 1974 there were 10 physicians total at York Hospital. If you stop Dr. Stuart in the hall today, he will still be able to tell you their names and what most of their work schedules were! On most Saturdays, the physicians would eat lunch in the cafeteria together – oftentimes with other employees or patients’ families. Another example of the kind of tight-knit community that defined York Hospital even back in the 1970s is that when Dr. Stuart performed surgeries, the assistant in the OR was typically the patient’s referring doctor, as opposed to another general surgeon or first assist.
These anecdotes illustrate that the philosophy of Loving Kindness has been an important aspect of how York Hospital has grown over the past four decades, and that Loving Kindness has guided Dr. Stuart as a physician, a caregiver and a colleague for more than 40 years. Kudos to Dr. Stuart—thank you for being an ambassador for York Hospital and a role model for all of us!
