FALL HAS ARRIVED !!!
While we say so long to Summer and record seeking temperatures, we fondly look to Fall by welcoming: fantastic day time temperatures, cool evenings, pumpkins, the World Series and the holidays.
While enjoying perfect days, it is very important to think about the most common illnesses associated with Fall. Fall always brings flu season, which is why we follow the American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines for Flu Vaccines. GET YOUR CHILD’S FLU VACCINE TODAY.
Fall also brings; the common cold, acute ear infections, and bronchiolitis. Remember we are here to help when these illnesses appear. It is important to see your child’s Pediatrician when these signs and symptoms arise.
Although fall has just begun, it is important to get those well child check ups scheduled as soon as possible. Our Fall schedules fill up quickly, so call early to ensure your child has everything he/she needs from us for the school year.
We have begun to implement a screening called ACE. Adverse Childhood Experience in-take forms will be reviewed and explained by our physicians when the need arises for your child. ACE and the effects of Toxic Stress are rapidly becoming popular topics, you will certainly start hearing a lot about them. If you think your child may be affected by ACE’s or Toxic Stress please inform their physician.
Lastly, please see our new integrative health page for maintaining optimum health and wellness. Our physicians can discuss any of these topics with you at your next appointment.
WISHING YOU A FUN AND SAFE FALL.
