Effective June 1, 2019, our practice will not accept new families that do not vaccinate their children. Established patients that are behind on their required vaccines will be required to bring their children up to date and will be given one month to comply with our policy after notification.

We prefer to remain your child’s pediatrician and will not dismiss any family who is actively working to properly vaccinate their child.

Please feel free to speak to our staff if you have any questions regarding this new policy. For further information on this new policy, click here.

Thank you.

Our Vaccine Philosophy

Our practice believes that all children should receive the recommended vaccines according to the guidelines provided by the AAP and the CDC. Vaccines are safe and effective in preventing diseases and health complications in children and young adults. Regular vaccinations help children ward off infections, and are administered as one of the safest and best methods of disease prevention.

We are happy to discuss your concerns about vaccines at your child's next visit.
