Scheduling of Sick Patients:

It is best for us to see patients who are sick.  Our  office has the ability to test for common infections like Flu, RSV, COVID, Strep, etc. We will know the results of these rapid tests before you leave the office. Alternatively, if you are unsure of what to do, you can call the office and ask for the physician who will return your call as soon  as possible.  If you are  an established patient, you may also request  a  telehealth visit.

Scheduling of  Well Child  Appointments : 

We are scheduling well visits for children during normal business office hours.  We ask that you keep your child's normal routine  visits so that we can maintain their proper vaccination schedule and monitor your  child's growth and development, especially in the two  years of life.

Phone Consultations/ Telemedicine/ Drive by/ House Calls 

We perform telemedicine visits with the use of doximitry software.  Co-pays are collected at the time  of scheduling. If that televist results in a regular  office visit within 24 hours, we will apply your co pay to the follow up visit.  We will either set up a specific  time to call you or you can elect for us to call you as soon as we can.  Telemedicine visits are most appropriate for follow up problems and no appropriate for most febrile illnesses.

COVID 19 Campaign Services

We are able to test for COVID 19 infections using a direct florescent antibody test made by Quidel, here in the US.  This test is considered on par or equivalent to a standard PCR test.  We are also able to to test for influenza A, influenza B, RSV and Strep infections - all within 15 minutes.  These tests significantly help  us determine the cause of any febrile  child's illness. We  are a registered state testing and vaccination site.  We have Pfizer and Moderna COVID vaccinations.  Vaccine supply is subject to availability to us though the State of Illinios.

Prenatal Consultation

Congratulations!  You are expecting a baby. Its a busy and stressful time. One thing you should decide is who you want to care for your baby.  To help you decide, we offer a free prenatal visit with one of our pediatricians.  This allows you to get to  know your child's doctor before he or she is born, get familliar with our facility and philosophy.  We are glad to meet you and answer all of your questions. If you are expecting, please call the office to arrange for a free prenatal visit.

Newborn Care

Newborns  are not small adults and have their own special  needs.  All of our pediatricians are trained in the care of newborns.  We are on staff at Edward Hospital, Naperville.  If your baby is born there, we will evaluate them within 24 hours of birth.  If your baby is born at an outside hospital, use the hospitalist on call and ask them to call us if  they find any concerns. After your hospital stay, we ask you bring your newborn to our office within 2-4 days for a followup visit.  We are able to treat the majority of common problems seen in newborns.  We will discuss and refer to you an expert if we find any rare defects or diseases.

Preventative Care

Preventative care works. We believe that early intervention is best for children. We closely follow your child's first  2 years of growth and development while offering proven methods of parenting and saftey advice to enable your child to grow to his or her maximim potential. We offer vaccines at safe and effective intervals.  We screen your child for developmental problems, anemia, tuberculosis, lead exposure, diabetes, urinary tract infections and depression on regular intervals. We follow the American Academy of Pediatrics health screening guidelines.

School Physical Exam and Immunization Program

Illinois law requires a school physidal exam within a year of entry to preschool, kindergarten, 6th grade, 9th grade and college. In addition to the physical exam students are screened for TB, Lead, Diabetes, and Anemia. A student must also be immunized against a long list of infections for which the specifics depend on the student's age and grade.  Our pediatricians will evaluate  your child's immunization records and inform you what you need to be compliant with the laws and what vaccinations  are optional and recommended. 

Flu Prevention Program

The CDC recommeds flu vacination for all children and adults. We strive to acheive this goal by providing a Flu Prevention Program..  Each fall we call every patient who had the vaccine last year and offer them this year's flu vaccine.  In addition, all patients and their parents are offered a flu vaccine when they are seen for their yearly exam in the fall. Children younger than 2 years and adults older than 65 are at an increased risk of complications from flu.  In order to provide the best possible protection to our young children, a flu vaccine should be taken by any caretaker, chronically ill child or immuno compromized child.  To that end, we offer the flu vaccine as a convenience to any care taker of infants or children. When a patient presents to our office with symptoms of flu, we have the ability to test for influenza A or B strains using a nasal swab.  This early detection enables us to offer early treatment and provide the best possible out comes.

Travel Clinic and Advice

Our pediatricicans have advised patients  on foreign travel for over 30 years.  If you are traveling, and need advice, consider coming to us for help, advice and protection.  The physicain will review all of your health  travel needs.  We maintain a stock of typhoid vaccine, meningitis vaccine, injectable polio and we will advise you on malaria prophylaxis.  If traveling, please call us and make a visit to discuss your travel plans and we will review with you the current recommendation(s) for medication(s). We will then decide with you , which vaccines you need.  If you have a special need, we usually can obtain the vaccine or drug through our suppliers. Please be advised insurance coverage for foreign travel greatly varies depending on your heath plan.  Most vaccines used for foreign travel are not routinely used in the U.S. A. and thus are not considered routine.
