PARENTS: Flu vaccines are now in!

You do not need an appointment but would still need to call from the parking lot when you arrive for this nurse visit.

Children younger than 5 years old–especially those younger than 2– are at higher risk of developing serious flu-related complications. A flu vaccine offers the best defense against flu and its potentially serious consequences and also can reduce the spread of flu to others. Getting vaccinated against flu has been shown to reduce flu illnesses, doctor’s visits, missed work and school days, and reduce the risk of flu-related hospitalization.

Tell us about your basic philosophy and greatest pleasure in practicing pediatrics and adolescent medicine.

My philosophy as a pediatrician is to educate. In order for patients to achieve positive health outcomes, I feel it is paramount to help children and their families understand the habits that build a healthy life as well as to understand the conditions that affect their medical needs. I believe in encouraging patients and their caregivers to ask questions to help them understand why a given treatment is, or isn’t, recommended. I also stress preventative care, especially the role that immunizations play in preventing disease. I enjoy working with families and children on strategies for developing and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

When I am not at work I enjoy reading and spending time with my husband and two daughters.
