When you have children, you realize how easy it is to not see them fully, and perhaps miss all those early years. If you are not careful, you can be too absorbed in work, and they will be only too happy to tell you about it later. Being a parent is one of the most mindfulness practices of all. Mindfulness is about loving life. When you cultivate this love, it gives you clarity and compassion for life, and your actions happen in accordance with that.
— Jon Kabat-Zinn
 
 

announcements

Summer Hours:

Beginning this week, we will begin closing at 3:00 pm (instead of 4:00 pm) on Fridays through the rest of the summer.  If you need an appointment on a Friday, please be sure to call as early as possible so we can do our best to accommodate. No other office hours will be impacted.

Flu Vaccines:
The AAP recommends children ages 6 months and older be immunized against influenza every year. Previously, the CDC and AAP had recommended either form of flu vaccine:

  • Injection approved for all patients older than 6 months OR
  • Intranasal spray (nasal mist) approved for healthy patients ages 2 through 49 years.

The CDC (Center for Disease Control) and AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics) just announced that due to poor effectiveness for the 2016/2017 season, they are not recommending the Flumist (Flu vaccine administered through nasal spray) this year.  As a result, to best protect our patients from this dangerous virus, we will be administering flu vaccines through injection
