Center for Disease Control and Prevention

Welcome to our Patient Education page!

Our team of professionals and staff believe that informed patients are better equipped to make decisions regarding their child's health and wellbeing. For your personal use, we have created an extensive patient library covering an array of educational topics, which can be found on the side of each page. Browse through these diagnoses and treatments to learn more about topics of interest to you. Or, for a more comprehensive search of our entire website, enter your term(s) in the search bar provided below.

As always, you can contact our office to answer any questions or concerns.

CDC.gov (www.cdc.gov) is your online source for credible health information and is the official Web site of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). CDC is committed to achieving true improvements in people's health. CDC applies research and findings to improve people's daily lives and responds to health emergencies—something that distinguishes CDC from its peer agencies. Working with states and other partners, CDC provides a system of health surveillance to monitor and prevent disease outbreaks (including bioterrorism), implement disease prevention strategies, and maintain national health statistics. CDC also guards against international disease transmission, with personnel stationed in more than 25 foreign countries.

CDC.gov provides parents with credible, reliable health information on:

  • Data and Statistics
  • Diseases and Conditions
  • Emergencies and Disasters
  • Environmental Health
  • Healthy Living
  • Injury, Violence and Safety
  • Life Stages and Populations
  • Travelers' Health
  • Workplace Safety and Health

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

Our Website

We advocate for all families to visit our website regularly. It provides office updated, medical and physician information, our wellness exam and immunizations schedule, and multiple pediatric resources to help you care for your child. In addition to a link to the American Academy of Pediatrics website, there are other approved pediatric website links to assist you in the care of your child – especially if they are sick. You will also be able to complete new patient forms to limit your wait time at your office visit.

Our Facebook Page

We encourage the frequent use of our Facebook page to keep us connected daily. We appreciate all of your comments and suggestions as we partner with you in keeping CENLA littles healthy!
