    What is Going Around

    FLU SEASON 2018-2019










    It’s not too late to get your flu vaccine!


    We recommend all children age 6 months and older get vaccinated. The CDC encourages vaccination through the winter months as the best protection. Please call to schedule.



    When Should You Return to Work or School?

    Illness season is here. It's always hard to know when it is safe to return to school or work.  In general, stay out until you are free of fever, runny nose, productive cough and diarrhea for 24 hours.  You can find more detailed information here.



    Preventing Pickiness

    Pediatric Associates is working with Dr. Cathy Stough at UC on the Healthy Start to Feeding study. It's a fun way to learn about strategies to prevent pickiness in your newborn.  If you have a child under two months, we encourage you to contact Angela Combs at for details.



    Parenting Corner

    Imagine what this year could look like if you take the time to genuinely connect with your family and with yourself by focusing on your strengths, taking time for mindfulness and being more intentional with the time you have together?  Learn more here.

    To learn more about you and your child’s strengths, and being more mindful and intentional with your family, you can contact our onsite parenting specialist, Kerry at 513-570-0941 or She can answer your questions or schedule an appointment.  You can also connect with her during the next Facebook Live session on January 29th at 1:00pm.

    Employee Highlight!

    Phyllis Drake has been with Pediatric Associates for over 16 years. In that time, she has enjoyed greeting and helping patients at our front desk. She is excited to be joining the medical records department this year. The best part, she will be able to still be seen at our front desk while working a few days a week in the medical records department.



    Happy Employee Anniversary

    Our RN Crystal Hoefinghoff has been with us for 15 years! Thank you for all your hard work and dedication!



    Upcoming Appointment?

    We are moving to a new appointment reminder system.  During this transition you may receive an extra email, call or text message.  We are sorry for any inconvenience.  It seems better to remind you twice than not at all.  If you have any thoughts about this new system please let us know so we can continue to meet your needs.
