Tuesday, 10/2/2019 update: CVS and Walgreens drug stores have removed all boxes of Zantac, an antacid, from their shelves in response to the 9/13/2019 FDA statement about NDMA contamination of some batches of Zantac (generic ranitidine). There is currently no consensus statement from any regulatory body in the United States about discontinuing Zantac for all patients. NDMA is a carcinogen when ingested in large amounts, and is a known environmental contaminant in water and certain foods, especially grilled meats. If you have a child on Zantac and have concerns, please call our office to discuss alternative treatment options with a provider.
Tuesday, 9/3/2019 update: We currently have injectable flu vaccine in stock. The yearly flu vaccine is recommended for all patients 6 month and older. Please call our office to make a flu shot appointment for your children.
