We are currently not accepting new patients or adding to our waiting list. We will be reevaluating this status on November 30, 2023.
If your child has a life-threatening emergency, call 911. If your child has an emergency or serious injury (such as a broken bone), please take him/her to the Kentucky Children’s Hospital emergency room (ER). If you have an urgent question (such as whether or not your child needs to go the ER) call the office number. You will be directed to the after-hours call phone. Please see Clinic Policies on use of the after-hours service.
Questions About Vaccines
No. Exceptions are temporarily made for specific vaccinations if your child is currently undergoing cancer treatment.
Yes, but I will discuss and encourage the flu shot with you on a yearly basis. It is lifesaving.
COVID vaccines for children are still under Emergency Use Authorization (EUA). Until it is fully FDA approved, I will strongly support the parents’ decision on whether or not to vaccinate. COVID vaccines are available at your local health department.
Questions About Insurance
I will no longer be able to provide care to your child. The good news is that nearly every pediatric practice in town accepts nearly every type of private insurance. My practice is specifically set up to assist those parents that have difficulty finding a quality provider who accepts their child’s Medicaid insurance.
I do not accept patients with both a primary and secondary insurance.
