Flu cases are on the rise. We STRONGLY encourage you to immunize your children against the flu. We offer flu vaccines at well visits, as well as other scheduled visits if a child is not too ill, in addition to nurse visits. Children must be at least six months old to receive the first vaccine, and a booster shot is needed the first year a child receives a flu vaccine.
We HIGHLY recommend the flu vaccine as the best way to prevent contracting the flu. The flu vaccine DOES NOT CAUSE the flu, but it does help reduce the likelihood of catching the flu. Medscape reports that last year in our country the flu caused 900,000 hospitalizations, and 80,000 deaths, of which 171 were children!
Please call our office to schedule a flu vaccine for your child.

We are accepting new patients*
We accept a wide variety of insurance policies as well as Medicaid. Please contact our office if you have questions.
*However, we DO NOT accept new patients who refuse immunizations.
CHADIS is Coming!!!
CHADIS is a new questionnaire system that we should have operating soon.
All those important (but sometimes time-consuming) questions we have you complete at well visits and certain rechecks can now be completed at your convenience at home prior to your child's appointment, and the information will be directly entered into your child's medical record. This will save both you and us a lot of time! Once you sign up, the system will automatically email you a link to the questions. More info to come. . . .
