The CDC has changed the recommendation for the HPV vaccine. They recommend that 11 to 12 year olds receive 2 doses 6 months apart, and children 15 and older still receive the 3 vaccines. Please read the attached article from the CDC website.
We are excited to announce that we have moved our office. We are now at 2020 Centre Street in West Roxbury. We will no longer be seeing patients at our old office in the Faulkner Hospital.
We are striving to make the move as seamless as possible for our patients, and we are making sure that we keep the things that our patients love about our practice. We continue to have our same themed rooms; so you don’t need to say goodbye to the Fish, Train or Balloon Rooms. There is no need to learn a new phone number, as our main number will still be 617-522-3100. We are also pleased that Quest Diagnostics has moved with us. So if your child needs blood work or other diagnostic testing, we will continue to have a lab conveniently located within our office.
There are a few changes that we think are exciting. There will be a FREE PARKING lot and ample nearby on-street parking. We are also working to upgrade our communication with you. We will have a new phone system that should direct you to the right person in our office to help you when you call. We are also encouraging patients to sign up for our patient portal when they are in the office. We have just started this new option this year, and are looking forward to continuing to upgrade it as we transition to a new electronic medical record later in 2017.
And to answer one of our most popular questions, despite our new zip code, we are still calling ourselves Roslindale Pediatrics.
If you have any questions or concerns or recommendations about our move, please feel free to contact us at 617-522-3100.
We are pleased to announce that our Patient Portal is now up and running.
With this online service you can now:
request future appointments
request medication refills
check laboratory results
send general messages.
More functions will become available as we develop the service.
Please register and sign-up the next time you come in to the office.
