    Spring Allergies

    Flowering trees and plants will soon be pollinating the air in the tri-state. If you are a spring allergy and asthma sufferer this is a good time to think about re-starting your allergy medications. Don't wait until your child is wheezing or their face is swollen!

    Provider Schedule Change This Spring

    Starting in May, we are adjusting practice locations for our providers to improve availability and access.  A particular provider may now be in a different location than what you were accustomed to on that day.  Transitions can always be a little confusing to start with, but we hope you will like our new set-up. And as always, please feel free to request your preferred provider and location. Thank you for understanding our efforts to serve you better!


    Office Charges in One Convenient Location

    Health care can be confusing.  We want to do what we can to keep information about your charges here as simple as possible.  To do this we put together our financial policies so you know what to expect.

    Register Your New Born on the Portal

     

     

     

    When you are expecting a new baby, even if it is not your first, there are a lot of details to remember. Please don’t forget us when getting everything ready for the new arrival.

    To make scheduling your new baby appointment easier, you are able to register them on the Patient Portal prior to baby’s birth.

    Simply go to your family’s patient portal and choose patient registration on the left side of the home page. If you haven’t chosen a name for baby, enter the first name as “baby”. Baby’s date of birth should be entered as the due date.

    When you are ready to come see us after baby is born, simply call and follow the prompts to the newborn line. Make sure you let us know that baby is already registered in the system. We will update the information and schedule you for the first appointment quickly and easily!

    Congratulations and we look forward to seeing you and your new addition soon.
