We welcome the addition of Dr Molly Naples to our practice starting in August of 2015. She has regular office hours seeing patients on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. We encourage all of our patients and families to meet and see Dr Naples for both well care and sick visits. Please check out her profile in our staff page.
Also annual flu vaccines for all patients are available in our office. Please call us to schedule your child’s flu vaccine during one of our evening “Flu Clinics” Mondays and Thursdays. Please note that there is a national shortage of the intranasal Flumist vaccine and it is currently only available for Vaccine-for-Children state eligible children under 5 years of age. We have plenty of injectable flu vaccine for all children ages 6 months and older. We recommend influenza vaccine for all of our patients.
Looks like another snow day Monday, February 2nd with limited office hours perhaps between 3-5pm. We will ask you to reschedule any previously-scheduled appointments. Dr Binder may be reached through our answering service by calling our main number (860) 678-9400
Please call our office today to schedule your child’s annual physical or next well child visit that is needed. We view an annual physical for school-aged children a vital part of maintaining your child’s health. Most camps and athletic programs will require a physical exam to participate and the Connecticut “blue form” that we give you at physical exams is accepted by most programs (Remember to always make extra copies). Please be aware that our summer schedule is our busiest and that children’s physicals can be done year-round. Many insurance carriers require a full calendar year since your last physical exam date, but often a different calendar year date is acceptable. Call your insurance company if needed to determine your benefits.
