10/14/2021– COVID-19 UPDATE

Hello- Here at Village Pediatrics we are all well and hope that you and your families are too! The VP providers and staff are here to help care for your children ages 0-22. We are seeing scheduled patients in our Southern Village office from 8am to 5pm. 

 

We’re also able to treat many problems as Virtual Visits using internet video connection via Face Time or secure Zoom.  If you have a concern that you’ve been meaning to discuss with your child’s doctor, this is an ideal time to call!

 

To keep your family healthy, we recommend scheduling the following types of appointments:

  • Newborns and babies under 2 years of age will be seen in the office for regular checkups (birth and 2, 4, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18 and 24 months). These visits are so important to your infants health! At each wellness visit:
  • Your baby Is weighed and measured to monitor growth parameters
  • Your baby has a hands on physical exam to screen for serious illness
  • You have time ask questions and we provide anticipatory guidance
  • Your baby receives necessary vaccines (a resurgence in measles or whooping cough would be terrible right now!)
  • Sick visits are by appointment only, please call for same day appointment
    • Fevers, sore throats, coughs, stomach aches can all be evaluated including any necessary testing
  • Virtual visits using Face Time or Zoom technology-
    • Routine medication follow- up visits for ADHD or mood
    • New onset concerns for ADHD, anxiety, OCD, depression
    • Behavioral concerns such as sleep challenges, picky eating, potty struggles, toddler tantrums, and setting limits with your teen
    • Chronic medical problems

Dear Friends, co-workers, and families of Village Pediatrics,

 
I had a wonderful opportunity to help the people of Haiti on a medical mission.  The people of Haiti are so kind, gracious, polite, and heart warming.  Village Pediatrics was supportive in my endeavor and I will forever be thankful for their encouragement and interest in my mission. Our world is so much bigger than our borders, there is so much beauty everywhere….if only words could tell the experience.
 
Enjoy your coffee this am,
 
Lisa

If your child is 11 – 18 you have probably been blissfully free from bringing them to vaccination appointments for years now.  Well, it’s time to think about boosters again.  Tetanus, Diptheria, pertussis, meningitis, hepatitis B, varicella, measles, mumps, rubella, and human papillomavirus are all diseases that your child may now be at greater risk for if his or her vaccinations are not up to date.  Check out the CDC’s recommendations, call us if you have questions, and schedule your child’s physical so we can update any vaccines that are needed.

It’s easy to leave things behind at the pediatrician’s office, so we’re starting a “lost and found” on our web page!  We try to keep everything that we find, so please check below to see if one of your child’s belongings is waiting to go home.

Once in a while, we take all of our unclaimed items to the thrift store, so we’ll keep this list as up to date as possible.

1.  An over-the-counter cough and cold preparations are not effective and they are not safe in children under 6 years old.

2.  The following simple remedies can be very helpful:

  • Humidifier for the bedroom
  • Vick’s Rub – Apply to the feet and put on socks!
  • Homemade Cough Syrup:  2-3 ounces of warm water or decaf tea mixed with one tablespoon of honey. Give one teaspoon of the mixture as needed.  Honey has no side effects but is ONLY for children 12 months and older.
  • Saline spray or rinse, or Neti Pot for the nose and sinuses
  • Warm shower

3.  Coughs that should be evaluated:

  • Dry, repetitive, irritating
  • Coughs with fever >101
  • Coughs without nasal congestion

4.  Your physician may recommend a prescription strength cough/cold medication if your child is over 3 years old – Use exactly as prescribed and do not combine with any other cough/cold products
