Frequently Asked Questions

Learn How It Works !

How can I get refill for my child’s medication?

If you are on a routine medication that can be called into the pharmacy, please contact the pharmacy first for your refill. If your prescription is out of refills, the pharmacy is supposed to contact our office to get further refills authorized by the ordering provider. If you are having any issues with a refill please reach out to our office. Frequently we may not have received a request from your pharmacy.

If you have a prescription that is a controlled medication, such as Ritalin, Concerta, and Adderall, etc., please contact our office and the receptionist will forward your request to the ordering provider.
We do ask that you give us at least 48 hours’ notice on all refill requests.

What is your stance on alternative medicine?

I am a board certified pediatrician who looks at the whole child in order to encourage optimal health. I am often finding that dietary changes can prevent chronic ear infections, GERD, migraine headaches or even behavioral challenges. There are also a number of very talented alternative practitioners with whom I work in our area.

Western medicine has some very important tools and is exceptional in life threatening situations. Alternative/complementary medicine offers a more holistic perspective to tackle those challenges that may not be life threatening but are impacting our quality of life.

I also offer acupuncture and shonishin (a needle-less acupuncture from Japan for infants and children) for a variety of issues including migraine headaches, recurrent abdominal pain, sleep disorders, anxiety, trauma and post-concussion syndrome.
