What's New

Many of the new families in our practice choose us after seeing us on Yelp. Thanks to those of you who gave us such positive reviews. If you haven’t submitted a review, and you like the job we’re doing, we appreciate your positive comments. This helps our “doors to stay open” in this very competitive medical environment.

Halloween is coming. Check out the info on keeping your kids safe on the 4th page under “Useful Information” / “Timely Information”

Flu season is coming. We’ve started to give the flu vaccine, so give us a call to schedule your kids for this.

Many parents still question the necessity of immunizations. The recent explosion of Ebola virus in Africa is a reminder that anyone can get on a plane, land here in the U.S., and start an epidemic. Obviously we don’t have a vaccine for Ebola but we do for measles, polio and other diseases common in the third world. Something to think about if you’re a vaccine-doubter. Check out this link.

Speaking of vaccines, a recent episode of NOVA on PBS explores this continuing debate in some detail. You should be able to find this show on-demand. Click Here

Studies consistently show that parents often under-dose or overdose their kids’ liquid medications, especially when using a teaspoon or tablespoon from the kitchen. The dose on the bottle should be in “ml” (milliliters) and the prescription should come with a dropper or syringe to measure out the correct amount. If you didn’t get something to measure out the exact dose, ask at the pharmacy for one.
