Parents of Blue Fish Pediatrics,

The 2021 summer newsletter is available to download here: 2021 Summer Newsletter

Thankfully the COVID vaccine should make our summer safer this year. However, the pandemic is still on-going and risk remains. While there are many variables out there, we would like to offer some helpful tips that will go a long way in reducing stress and ensuring that your family stays healthy while you enjoy your summer.

For well child visits this summer, we encourage you to make your appointment sooner than later. Please do not delay calling to schedule this appointment until the week before school starts; otherwise it is highly likely you will not be seen until after school starts. Here is a reminder of our office policy regarding School and Camp forms:

  1. You must be up to date on your checkups: In order for our doctors to fill out a school/camp form, your child must be up to date on his/her checkups. For example, children over two years old must have been seen for a well check within the last 12 months.
  2. Forms can be mailed in, faxed in, emailed in, or handed in: Forms do not need to be handed to our office in person. They can be emailed, faxed, or sent to us by mail. We prefer email when possible. For contact information for each office, please click here.
  3. Allow at least one week: Please allow our office at least one week (5 business days) to process and return your form. Forms allowed this lead time will be processed free of charge.
  4. Express processing: Forms requiring same day express processing will be subject to a $30 per form fee. Please call your office for more information.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact your respective office.

Thank you and have a wonderful summer!
