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.

I chose Pediatrics because it allows me to work not only with the patient but with their family. Additionally, it gives me the ability to provide crucial support that can potentially reshape a family’s future. A large focus of my conversation with parents is based on preventative care, including immunizations, nutrition and childhood/adolescent safety.

Outside of work, I enjoy traveling, cooking, baking and spending time with my husband and children.
