News & Events


We’ve made it through the first 6 months of the COVID-19 pandemic, and plan to be in it for the long-haul. The extraordinary wellness that was experienced during the first few months of the pandemic has given way to more illness, including COVID-19, in recent months with the opening of daycares, businesses, and activities. At the same time, we have tried to stay on top of the latest information as demonstrated with the 3/16/20, 4/1/20, 5/1/20, 6/1/20, 7/2/20, and 9/4/20 updates written by Dr. Scott and also available through the website. We continue to learn, but we hope that spread of COVID-19 as well as other diseases will be reduced this coming fall and winter with precautions taken. We are overdue for a light flu season.
Due to the evidence that the SARS-CoV-2 virus is often spread by people who do not know that they are sick, we request that everyone coming to our office call first (rather than just walking in) and please wear a mask or face shield. That is especially true for people who have coughs or are sneezing. Thank you for your cooperation.


We continue to take pleasure in serving as your children’s pediatricians.
