Flu Clinic Update

There has been a delay in shipping for the Flu Vaccine (shot). This affects any medical provider that may supply the vaccine.

All flu clinics that were previously scheduled are canceled except for Tuesday, September 23 from 5 to 7 pm. This clinic will be for the FLU MIST only.

The flu mist is being recommended especially for children ages 2 and up, even those with certain controlled chronic conditions. Please feel free to call our office if you have any questions concerning your child receiving the Flu Mist.

We ask that you LIKE us on Facebook, join our email club or check this web site for up-to-date information.

We appreciate your patience and the opportunity to serve your family.

Hats for Honduras

Dr. Brown will be traveling to Honduras on her annual mission trip in October with the Luke Society. The medical, surgical and dental brigade provides care to hundreds of villagers every year. This summer we will be collecting new or gently used youth size baseball caps for her to take with her. The boys do so enjoy them, especially if they have an American sports logo on them!

Dr. Somers' Blog

My blog is directed to parents of Trestlewood Pediatrics' patients in in order to give more insight into the way I think about health, as well as useful facts. My comments are shaped by my own personal experience in medicine (four years of medical school, four years pediatric residency, thirteen years general pediatric practice), motherhood (I have three daughters, ages 14, 11, and 8), published research in the field, as well as policies and recommendations from pediatric and medical organizations.
