IMPORTANT REMINDER: PLEASE SCHEDULE YOUR CHILDREN’S ANNUAL WELL CHECKS, SPORT PHYSICALS, AND COLLEGE PHYSICALS to avoid any interruption in their vaccine schedule or difficulties registering for school sports or college entrance. The use of telemedicine during the pandemic made it possible to safely treat patients, and we may use it for some sick visits or medication checks if you are on vacation or away at college, but the best medical care comes from seeing our patients in person. Children change and develop so quickly. Annual check-ups give us the best opportunity to monitor those changes and catch any inconsistencies both mentally and physically.


SCHOOL/CAMP FORMS INFO: Cost per form $15/child.  Forms can be dropped off and/or picked up inside the office via door 207 from 9am-12:30pm/1:30pm-4:30pm. However if you prefer to drop forms off in the drop box OR upload them to the portal, please make sure EVERY page has the patient's name and date of birth on the top with a note specifying if you want them returned via portal, fax or pickup. We do not call when forms are ready, but feel free to call and check the status. Thank you!

Please see this health alert from the AAP regarding recent safety recalls.
