Commonly Asked Questions

Dr. Shi personally conducts a Virtual Meet and Greet with all prospective families prior to signing up with the practice.  This complimentary consultation provides an opportunity for both parties to get to know each other and to determine if it would be a good fit.  Parents and families are encouraged to ask questions openly and learn more about the direct-access practice model and its services.  Once you’re enrolled as a Little Roots Direct-Access member, you can directly book with Dr. Shi or request appointment by utilizing our smartphone app for our practice.  

Little Roots Pediatrics does not participate in any insurance plans for our direct-access members-exclusive services.  For those with insurance, our practice works well with PPOs. We facilitate specialist referrals, procedures and/or imaging done outside of office, and lab draws.  While we are unable to guarantee a specific reimbursement rate, PPOs typically allow ease with subspecialty referrals.

Membership fees are charged to your bank account, credit, or debit card monthly or annually.  You can pay as a recurring monthly payment with an additional one-time enrollment fee for the family. For annual memberships, the enrollment fee is waived.  You may also use your FSA or HSA to pay for a membership, but we recommend you consult with your employee benefits manager or health insurance benefits representative to confirm this.

Yes, we currently have openings in our practice. However, space is limited in order to provide personalized care to each member and family. Once the practice reaches capacity, families will be placed on a waitlist and notified when a spot becomes available.

Meet Dr. Eileen Shi, MD

"Pediatrician, Bodybuilder, Entrepreneur."

In my teens, I witnessed my mother’s challenge with a series of depersonalized medical care for her terminal illness. That eye-opening experience has cemented in me the kind of doctoring I value and believe that every child and every person deserves: honesty, openness, respect and compassion.

Little Roots Pediatrics is founded on these principles so that you and your children can be cared for with the best medical knowledge that is only as good as the communication and relationships we build with one another. I believe that every child and family deserves a higher level of focus and personalized care to achieve sustainable health.

Your pediatrician should always be your child’s advocate and believe your child always comes first. I am able to help families on their wellness journey by integrating evidence-based care with holistic health principles to provide the most up-to-date, direct-access pediatric care.
