    Happy New Year!

    We are grateful to start our 26th year serving Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati families.

     
     

    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.

     

     
     

    Flu Is Here!

    Sometimes it is hard to distinguish the flu from other colds and viruses.  The big tipoff is high fever and body aches and overall appearance  usually the flu really wipes you out.

    Who Needs An Appointment?

    Who Should Get Tamiflu?

    When to return to school or work?

    Is there any benefit to getting the flu shot at this point?

     
     

    Medication Refills

    Our patients now have many ways to request medication refills - call your pharmacy, call the office, or request from the portal.  Please keep in mind that we ask for 48 hours notice to refill prescriptions as we need time to review each child's chart and make sure we are refilling the right medication to the right pharmacy at the right time.  Please do not call after hours for routine medication requests such as ADHD medications.

    Have a question about your child's health or medication? We suggest you look at our website or app as trusted sources of information on a variety of topics. "Is Your Child Sick?" has pediatric specific information on common illness symptoms.  The "Medical Info" section has resources for medication dosages, medical conditions, and a library of advice on topics such as breastfeeding, parenting, and more.

    New Patient Portal

    Have you been getting letters from school about vaccines for the 2018-19 school year? Need an updated immunization certificate? Not sure if your child is up to date? Check our patient portal and you will see the vaccine forecast predicting what your child needs and you can request a vaccine record that can be printed off at home!
