Our Vaccine Philosophy

Our practice believes that all children should receive the recommended vaccines according to the guidelines provided by the AAP and the CDC. Vaccines are safe and effective in preventing diseases and health complications in children and young adults.

We are happy to discuss your concerns about vaccines at your child's next visit.

Contact Us

Telephone Calls

We encourage all parents and guardians to contact our office during our working hours, as our staff has access to your child’s medical records during this time. However, should that not be possible for you, do still contact the office to reach our answering service. Please leave your name, the patient’s name and date of birth, and a reliable call-back telephone number with your medical concerns or questions. Remember to remove all call blocks at that time to allow a return call. Caller ID is not an appropriate means for reaching our provider(s). Please have a pharmacy number ready in case a prescription is needed. Allow our on-call provider to respond promptly.

For true emergencies, please call 911
