    Check on Your Child's Vaccine Status

    Meningitis Vaccines and School Requirements

    Requirements for meningitis vaccines in grade school, high school and college can be confusing.  Recommendations are dependent on travel expectations, living arrangements and medical history.  Be sure to ask us when you are in for your next visit if your family is up-to-date on these life-saving immunizations.

    Need a Sports Physical?

    If you're the parent of a young athlete, you're likely familiar with sports physicals. You've seen the ads for them: short wait times, no appointment needed, open seven days a week. But are these quick medical check-ups the best way to monitor your child's health? Not at all.

    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! 

     

    Register Your Newborn 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.
