Flu shot Clinic

We are holding a Saturday Flu shot clinic for our patients and immediate families.
October 24th from 9:30 until Noon.
 There is no appointment necessary.

There have been several reported cases of positive influenza already reported, so I would not wait.
If you haven't gotten your child the shot yet, now is a good time.

The supply has been a bit slow getting to us this year.
 I anticipate that by mid October we will have plenty.

We are planning on holding a saturday morning flu shot clinic in the office on October 24th.
I will confirm that will full details when we get closer to the date.

I will occasionally update this site throughout the flu season.

new facebook page

I started this blog years ago when the H1N1 was rampant, patients were flooding the phone system and we needed to figure out a way to get the message out to all of our patients at once.
Since then it has transitioned to a weekly "what's going around"

It is our intention to move that over to our new Noe Valley Pediatrics face book page.
My Nurse Judy Blog with a different topic each week will remain intact

If there is anyone out there who will really miss this venue let me know! Comments welcome.

Unless there is a huge outcry, I plan to put this baby to bed and start posting on the Facebook page.
Looking forward to seeing you on Facebook.

Weekly update January 26,2015

We are still seeing the flu, but not is the same crazy numbers that we were seeing 2 weeks ago.
We still have a ton of kids with high fever, vomiting and coughing but they are not coming up positive with the flu test in the office.
I also have seen a huge number of kids with ear infections so far today.

To nobody's surprise we are getting a lot of calls about measles.
We have not seen any cases in SF so far. If you are traveling and your child is not fully vaccinated, feel free to call to discuss getting your child protected.

and with all the illnesses going around,here is one more useful post

One of our parents told us about a terrific resource out in the community.
The Anahata Integated healing Center in SF is offering Yoga classes for kids that focus on self regulation and impulse control.
For more information call 720-833-8016

Stay healthy!!

New eye screening tool in the office

Our office is trying out a new screening tool.
The iscreen can test children as young as one year old for the following issues:
Near sightedness
Far sightedness
alignment problems
unequal focusing
Abnormal curve of the cornea
unequal pupil size

Just like a digital camera the Iscreen vision captures dual images of your child's eyes in seconds.
Images are reviewed by trained technicians and results are sent to the office before you leave.

This is covered by most PPO insurances
If you are an HMO or self pay the cost of the test is $40.

If you are interested in getting this done, ask your doc the next time you are in the office!
