We are excited to announce that on September 12, 2017 we will be converting to a new Electronic Medical Record (EMR)
Some of the benefits are outlined below:
- smoother scheduling and registration saving time for our patients and families
- simplified, easy to understand statements and online bill pay
- access to a new patient portal – “MY CHART” where you can send and receive messages with your care team, get copies of camp and school forms and much more..
- Please arrive at least 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment time
Thank you in advance for your patience through the transition- “It’s going to be EPIC!”
We are pleased to announce that we are having drop in hours for flu vaccine administration this year. Please stop by our office on Thursdays between the hours of 10 am and 6 pm.
As a reminder: The Center for Disease Control recommends flu vaccine for all patients aged 6 months and older.
Please do not come for the vaccine if your child has a fever and or moderate to severe illness. If your child has had an allergic reaction to eggs in the past, please call to schedule your flu vaccine for a different time.
We are excited to announce that Dr. George Atkinson will be joining the RPA family this fall.

He has a particular interest in dietary counseling around obesity and exercise science. Dr. Atkinson graduated from Vanderbilt University with a BS in Bioethics and then attended the Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) at the University of Alabama in Birmingham, where he earned both his MD and a PhD degree. His PhD was earned in the department of Cell Biology. In his free time, George enjoys biking, reading and watchmaking. We look forward to him joining the RPA team this fall.
You may also notice some new faces at our lab. There are new phlebotomists covering in the Quest lab. They are excited to be here and we are happy to have them covering until we find our permanent person.
