It’s easy to schedule an appointment online via our portal

It’s now easier than ever to schedule your appointment via the portal! Here’s a video demonstration. Portal scheduling is most useful for ordinary sick visits within the next few days, quick nurse visits for vaccines, or well check ups for children 11 and under (currently you can’t schedule well checks for older children on the portal, but we’re working on that!)

If you can’t find a slot that fits your needs, or you think the appointment needs extra time or is complicated for any reason, please give us a call. It’s also best to call if you need an appointment quick, within a few hours — in that case, we can sometimes shift things around to fit you in. As always, when you call there’s no phone tree, and it’s easy to get a receptionist on the line to help with appointment scheduling or anything else!

Elderberry extract for colds and flu

Wow — we’re getting dozens of questions about elderberry and elderberry extracts to help treat cold and flu symptoms. It is “the thing” flying around Facebook! Should you try it? Here’s what we know:

  • There are zero studies of any elderberry product to help with cold or flu symptoms in children.
  • There is one small study, from 2004, of elderberry for adults with flu. It showed a very strong positive effect. But the study was funded by a company that makes and sells elderberry syrup, and it was never repeated.
  • Elderberry products seem to be quite safe. I suppose as with anything there’s a risk of allergic reactions, but in ordinary amounts I don’t think these elderberry products are likely to cause any harm.
