Thank you for your interest in becoming a patient of Blue Fish Pediatrics.
We are thrilled to have you consider us as your pediatric provider. To ensure that our office meets your expectations we would like to tell you a little bit about our practice. All of our doctors practice evidence-based medicine. Here are some relevant examples of what to expect:
- We adhere to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommended vaccine schedule.
- We are judicious about the use of antibiotics and will prescribe them when appropriate. For example, we do not prescribe antibiotics for a viral infection such as the common cold. For the child’s safety, we do not call out antibiotics over the phone without a proper examination.
- We do not utilize cough and cold medications, as there is no supporting evidence for their use in the pediatric population.
- We are judicious about the use of radiologic and laboratory tests. Most diagnoses can be made with a thorough history and physical exam.
Our goal is to be the best resource possible for your children’s healthcare needs by empowering you with relevant and up-to-date medical information so that together we provide the best care for your children.
This practice was created for you to provide:
Timely and convenient service
