It's that time of year again! Yes it is Christmas, but it is also the cough, cold & flu season. If your family is anything like mine, it's a hard time of the year! In the past month alone, we had flu, ear infection & tummy bug!

Because I understand how hard this season can be, I also understand the importance of our ensuring that your families have good access to excellent health care. Our practice has implemented several strategies to make ourselves available to you when that fever happens in the middle of the night or that ear pain starts Sunday morning!

We know it can be easy to pop into different urgent cares around town. We also recognize that many urgent care clinics do a good job. However, we think it is extremely important for doctors to know the "whole picture" of your child—how she was premature, how he was hospitalized last year for RSV, or how she has had several recent asthma exacerbations. Knowing your child's complete medical history allows us to take their "whole clinical picture" into the context of our medical decision making. It is part of the relationship that we have fostered as your primary care providers and we firmly believe this helps us provide superior care!

So, how can you get a hold of us?

1) Normal clinic hours

2) After Hours—appointments can be made daily with the "on call doctor" who stays late

3) Nurse triage line—now FREE & available 24/7

4) Saturday clinic

5) Early morning urgent visits—made by the on-call doctor & triage nurse

Merry Christmas! We hope you stay well this holiday season. But, if you find your little one sick in the middle of the night or over the weekend, please call. We will be happy that you did!
