April 2023: National medicine shortages
In our local area and nationally, there has been a shortage of ADHD medications (Adderall, methylphenidate).
Many times, even if the medication is not available at your preferred pharmacy, it may be available at another pharmacy in the area. This changes day by day - and unfortunately, the only way to find out is to call each pharmacy. At your visit to our office, depending on the medication, you may be told that an alternate medication is being sent in, or be handed a paper prescription as well. If you are unable to locate the medication in our local area, please let us know by portal or phone so we can come up with an alternate plan.
The American Academy of Pediatrics has been advocating to the federal government for help with the shortage of medications for children. To assess the scope of the problem, they have asked families to email the FDA at: [email protected] with their experience. Reporting this problem helps to ensure a comprehensive solution in the coming months.
Sick appointments are available daily by appointment (no walk-ins), both in-person and via telehealth. All patients and family members 2 yrs and above are asked to wear a mask for sick appointments. For more information about how we are keeping our staff and you safe, please visit our COVID-19 page.
Email Address: Please use [email protected] if you need to email us any forms for completion.
