We know that children get sick after hours. We expect and encourage you to bring your child to the office at 8:30 am weekdays, if you have been up with a sick child during the night.

We are open Monday through Friday 8:30 to 9:00 for walk-ins. We start appointments at 9:00 and close at 5:00 We are closed from 12:00-1:00 for lunch.

Please call between 8:30 and 9:00 on Saturday mornings if you have a sick child that needs to be seen. We usually have a physician in the office on Saturday, but times will vary. Most Saturdays we are finished by 11:00 or 12:00.

After Hour Calls:
We always have a physician on call in the evenings and on weekends. Should you need to contact us after hours about an emergency, you will speak directly with the physician on call.

We all strongly believe that vaccines save lives and we are proponents of preventative medicine. Therefore, all of our patients are vaccinated. We do offer a modified schedule which requires more visits but fewer vaccinations at each visit.


This most recent COVID surge has been associated with higher fevers in some cases. We offer the following advice about fever.

1. Fever is a reflection of the immune system doing it's job.

2. Fevers of 103-104 are not uncommon in viral illnesses. In some cases, fever can be as high as 105 or 106.

3. Your body will not let a fever go high enough to cause any permanent damage.

4. You do not have to treat every fever. If your child is comfortable, drinking, and playing, it's acceptable to not give fever medications. If your child has a history of seizures with fevers, we do recommend treating regularly.

5. A lukewarm bath can help bring a fever down.

6. Treating a fever doesn't guarantee that the temperature will return to normal. However, you should verify that you are giving the correct dose based on your child's weight. Commonly parents undermedicate their children when it comes to fever.

7. If you are alternating an acetaminophen product with an ibuprofen product, wait 3-4 hrs between doses.
