Heathcare Exchange (Obamacare) open
The New Healthcare Exchange (also known as Obamacare) is open. Now health insurance is available to everyone.
For our patients seeking health insurance through the Market Place on healthcare.gov, we are on the Blue Cross Blue Shield Pathway X plans and the Humana National Preferred Health Plans. The link to the government exchange website is https://www.healthcare.gov/marketplace/individual.
The market place plans have a limited panel of providers so it is very important that you check to make sure your specialist is listed in network on the plan you choose.
It's not too late to get your child the flu vaccine! Flu season has begun, but a flu shot or the Flumist can help keep your child (and the rest of your family) from getting sick with the flu. If your child has not yet had his or her flu vaccine this season, please schedule an appointment for him or her to come in for it. Ask us which type of vaccine is appropriate for your child.
Flu vaccine for the first time?
Children 8 years old and under need 2 doses of flu vaccine the first time they ever receive the vaccine to ensure optimal immune response. Make sure your child gets both doses if he or she needs them. If you are not sure, call our office and we can check for you.
Your medical home
Remember, your doctor or nurse practitioner knows your child best. We have your medical record at our fingertips and are here 6 days a week to take care of your child. We will provide follow up care and reassess your child if he or she is not improving as expected. We are also available to give advice after hours and determine if your child's problem warrants an emergency room or urgent care visit. Immediate care centers and pharmacy clinics cannot provide those services and may not be well equipped to take care of children.
Come in for an asthma check
For those patients who have asthma, the fall is an important time to come in for an asthma check. This would also be a good time for your child to receive a flu shot. For more info, click here.
Sports and Concussions
This has been a topic widely covered in the news as research has shown that young athletes can suffer long term damage to the brain if a concussion is not treated appropriately. Learn more about concussions and treatment.

Are you swaddling your baby properly?
Improper swaddling may lead to hip dysplasia or developmental dysplasia of the hip. When in the womb the baby’s lets are in a fetal position with the legs bent up and across each other. Sudden straightening of the legs to a standing position can loosen the joints and damage the soft cartilage of the socket. Click on this link to read more.
Is it time for your child's check up?
Check ups should be done once a year on every patient starting at 4 years old. Children younger than 4 are seen much more often for check ups. There are 11 check ups from birth to 3 years. Has your child had a check up lately? Most insurance companies do not require co-pays for check ups now. Check with your insurance company to see if this is true for your insurance. Check ups are preventive in nature and we want to encourage all of our patients to come in for their check ups. Remember, important vaccines are giving at your child's check up. Do not wait, call today.
