Choosing a pediatrician for your child can be a daunting task.
Which one is the best fit for our family? Do you offer same-day sick appointments? What if my baby gets sick when the office is closed? Are you certified by the American Board of Pediatrics? Are you part of a group practice?
While we can’t answer these questions or make these decisions for you, we CAN make them a little easier. Check out this resource for local pediatricians & pediatric health services.

Did you know about 40 million people suffer from a sleep disorder? If you have difficulty getting a good night’s sleep or find your mind and body tired during the day, you may be one of many people with a sleep disorder. Sleep disorders are common and can be treated.
Difficulty sleeping occurs in men, women, and children of all races and socioeconomic groups and increases with age. Left untreated, sleep disorders can impact your health. This can include reduced quality of life, lower productivity in the workplace and school, depression, irritability, heart attack, stroke, and even death.
