11-2-2016:  Online credit card payments:

We have temporarily disconnected our online payment option.  We are contracting with a new credit card processor who will offer e-billing and online payments.  We appreciate your patience during this transition.  Please call our office to make your credit card payment or mail your payment information in the envelope provided with your statement.  Thank you.

 

11-27-2012:  Newborn infants in the hospital will now be covered by the in-house hospitalist pediatricians at University Hospitals of Cleveland and Hillcrest Hospital.  We feel extremely confident in their care, and they communicate with us regarding the details of the newborn hospitalization.  We recommend proceeding with the recommended newborn screening for hearing deficit and for heart disease as well as the Ohio Newborn Screen required by the state.  We also recommend babies receive their first hepatitis B vaccination while in the hospital.  If you have questions or concerns arising during your newborn's stay, please discuss these with the pediatrician in the hospital, and you are always welcome to call us during the day at the office at (216) 382-3800.  We typically see newborns to check on their feeding and weight 2-3 days after they are discharged from the hospital, but occassionally the doctor at the hospital may recommend coming in the day after discharge, and we will accommodate  that as well.

 

1-23-2012:  Please be aware that in the interest of your child, family, & community's well being, we strongly recommend complete vaccination consistent with the standards put forth by the American Committee on Immunization Practices and the American Academy of Pediatrics.  The doctors are each happy to address concerns you may have about vaccinating your child.  In order to keep our office as safe of a place as possible for newborns and all people, we are not accepting new patients who refuse to vaccinate their child.  For more information, please see Immunizations: Protect Your Child From Disease.

 

6-30-2010:  Before you call for medical advice, please consider checking out the "KidsDoc Symptom Checker" on HealthyChildren.org.  It is derived from the same type of protocols our nurses use when they answer you calls.  There is also an iPhone/iTouch application!
