When should a child be introduced to peanuts?
Early! Please refer to this informative webpage from CHLA about introducing peanuts. New studies show it is better to introduce peanuts and other nuts early.
Our Office Vaccine Policy
After considerable discussion amongst the physicians of Glendale Pediatrics, we have made the decision to require our eligible patients to receive two vaccinations: DTaP and MMR. We did not come to this decision lightly. While we have close bonds with our patients, we also have a responsibility to protect every single person who walks through our door from vaccine-preventable diseases. This especially includes those who cannot be vaccinated due to young age or complex medical conditions. These patients rely on us to provide the safest possible environment for their medical care, and we must do everything possible to ensure that standard.
We understand that this policy may generate questions. Our physicians are well-equipped to discuss any questions that you may have, so please feel free to ask them.
What if I need a refill of a prescription?
If you need a medication refilled, please call your pharmacy first to request a refill. They will contact us directly even if you are out of refills. Please give us at least 2 business days for regular medication refills. We can now electronically and directly submit regular medication refills to your pharmacy.
The exception to this is for triplicate medication refills. Please call the office to request a triplicate medication refill and give us at least 5 business days. Triplicate refills must be picked up directly from our office. Please note that we do not refill prescriptions after office hours.
