Announcements
This page presents a complete list of our announcements.

1/21/2017  -   ALLERGY TESTING: We are now offering allergy testing for respiratory allergens, including grasses, trees, dust, weeds, molds, and pets. Please talk to your doctor if you would like to make an appointment for skin testing with our qualified allergy nurse practitioner, Abby Ivie. We plan to initiate immunotherapy (allergy shots) in Spring 2017 for those patients that would benefit from this treatment option.
12/30/2016  -   FLU SHOT CLINIC UPDATE: Starting Wednesday, Jan. 4th, flu vaccines will be given during our "shot-only" clincs Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 1:30 -- 4 PM. No appointment is needed. We will not have any more evening clinics this season. Thanks!
8/31/2016  -   FLU VACCINES: It's that time of year again! We have our influenza vaccines in and are ready to administer them to all patients 6 months and up. Please note that this year, THERE WILL BE NO FLUMIST AVAILABLE. The CDC/AAP/ACIP have all strongly advised to not use FluMist this year based on decreased efficacy in past years, and we will abide by these recommendations. Therefore there will only be flu shots available. We strongly encourage all patients to receive a flu vaccine-- especially those with a chronic illness and their household contacts. If your child has a regularly-scheduled check-up, he may receive the flu vaccine at that appointment. If you would like your other children to receive flu shots at that appt (or if you want to yourself), please let the front desk know at check-in. Thank you in advance for a great Flu season!
5/11/2015  -   NEW ADHD appointment policy: For all patients who routinely take stimulant medications for ADHD, we are implementing a better policy to monitor growth and side effects of these meds. After initially establishing the right medication and dose with your doctor, it is advised that the patient be seen every 3 months during the first year and then every 6 months thereafter for follow-up. Annually, this appt will be the full well-child-check. However, these other quick appts will be for weight, height, blood pressure, and side effect monitoring. These appts may be with your primary doctor or with Barbara Koval, NP, who is specifically trained in ADHD as well. Thank you in advance.
2/18/2013  -   Piedmont Pediatrics strongly discourages walk-in patients during the week. If you bring your child in on a walk-in basis on Mondays through Fridays, we will offer you an appointment later that day. For this appointment, you may wait or come back at the appropriate time. We try very hard to accommodate every family's needs on the same day, but we also want to honor the appointments previously scheduled in an efficient manner. Starting immediately, there will be an added fee of $35 to your bill if you walk-in during the week and disrupt the daily schedule. Thank you for your understanding.
3/2/2012  -   We hold shot-only clinics on Tues, Wed, and Thurs afternoons from 1:30-4pm. These clinics are for children who are up-to-date on their well-child physicals, just behind on their vaccines. You do not need an appointment for these shot-only clinics. PLEASE NOTE: All patients younger than 18 yrs old need a parent or responsible adult present to receive vaccines. Thank you.
7/6/2010  -   THE PHYSICIANS OF PIEDMONT PEDIATRICS AND THE AMERICAN ACADEMY OF PEDIATRICS ENDORSE WWW.HEALTHYCHILDREN.ORG. THE WEBSITE HAS MANY GOOD QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS FOR GENERAL PEDIATRIC PATIENTS AND PARENTS ALIKE. CHECK IT OUT.
