    The best place for children to receive medical care is at a pediatrician's office. But, sometimes kids don't wait for office hours to get sick or injured. So, what should you do for those times when your baby runs a high fever during the night or your young athlete hurts his wrist at a weekend practice?

Check our patient portal and you will see the vaccine forecast predicting what your child needs and you can request a vaccine record that can be printed off at home!

    Please follow these directions to print out the official state of Kentucky vaccine certificate.

    Register Your Newborn on the Portal


    When you are expecting a new baby, even if it is not your first, there are a lot of details to remember. Please don't forget us when getting everything ready for the new arrival.

    To make scheduling your new baby appointment easier, you are able to register them on the Patient Portal prior to baby's birth.

    Simply go to your family's patient portal and choose patient registration on the left side of the home page. If you haven't chosen a name for baby, enter the first name as "baby". Baby's date of birth should be entered as the due date.

    When you are ready to come see us after baby is born, simply call and follow the prompts to the newborn line. Make sure you let us know that baby is already registered in the system. We will update the information and schedule you for the first appointment quickly and easily!

    Congratulations and we look forward to seeing you and your new addition soon.
