    Hepatitis A Outbreak: It's baaaaack!

    Last month we informed you that the Hepatitis A outbreak in Louisville seemed to be settling down.  Well, lo and behold, the next day, the Kentucky Department of Health reported that Kentucky topped the nation in cases of Hepatitis A this summer.  There were over 1100 cases in Kentucky in June with an additional 600+ spreading into neighboring West Virginia. Be sure to contact us if you have questions about your Hepatitis A vaccine status.

    More info from the Ky Health Dept.

    Schedule Your Flu Vaccine Now!

    We have injectable flu vaccine in our office now and we are expecting flu mist soon.  If you are in for an appointment we can give your child their vaccine while here.  We also have Saturday vaccine clinics scheduled for October 6, 13 and 27 and December 1.  Please go to the portal to schedule the best date and time for you.  You can also call our office to schedule.  The CDC recommends everyone 6 months and older receive the flu vaccine each year.  It is especially important for patients with issues like asthma, heart disease, diabetes or any other chronic illness to get this important protection.  It is not too early to vaccinate your children for the upcoming fall and winter flu season.

    Licensed Psychological Practitioner at our Crestview Hills Office

    We are excited to introduce Emmaly Meier, a licensed psychological practitioner.  Emmaly will be working in our office on Mondays and Thursdays starting this month.  She is able to see your child for a variety of issues including anxiety, depression and testing for ADHD.  Her experience includes being a school based therapist in Lexington.  Speak to your provider if you think your child could benefit by seeing Emmaly.


    Lactation Support Now Available

    We are excited to introduce a new service at Pediatric Associates!  Elise, a nurse here for 11 years, is now available for lactation counseling in our Crestview Hills office.  If you have breast feeding issues, speak to your provider, and they may recommend lactation counseling.  If you decide you want to see Elise, you can call our office and schedule an appointment.  She is usually in Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.  We recognize that although this is a “natural process” it does not always come easily to everyone. Providing this support for you both is important to us so that you and your baby can enjoy all the benefits of breastfeeding.  Please be aware that there is a charge for this service that is not billable to insurance.
