Patient Portal: Up and running!

Are medical forms part of your child's back-to-school checklist?  Parents, you can use our secure patient portal to log in and access your child's records.  You can print out immunization records (the KCI form) and recent physical exams (in school-friendly format) all prefilled with your child's information, ready to submit to your child's school!   Just go to and click on "patient portal" right next to the "home" button on the top menu.  Check it out!

Pics from Teddy Bear Checkup

We had a great Saturday morning getting dozens of Teddys, Bunnies, Snakes, Seahorses and other assorted stuffed animals and Dollies ready for school this fall!  Not one of them cried with their shots :)   The staff and I had a great time with all the kids and parents - thanks for a fun morning!

Double the fun with twins!

New Decor!

Many thanks to my cousins Sandra and Eric Denneler for "freshening" my office with some wonderful new decor!  Sandra is responsible for our Redbud logo and all the cute designs we use in our office and correspondence. You can see many more photos of the updated rooms (and all her other great creative projects!) at her blog  Then see it all in person at your child's next visit, or at our open house tomorrow.  Be sure to tell any interested parents about our Teddy Bear checkup tomorrow morning!

Teddy Bear Checkup open to the Public!

Kids are often nervous about going to the doctor's office for a check-up.  Having a medical home for your child means having a place where they are not afraid to go.  Check-ups really can be fun for kids!  Bring your child and their teddy bear or other favorite stuffed friend to Redbud this Saturday for a check-up that they help with!  They can even give their bear all the "shots" needed to start bear school this fall.   Meet me and my staff at Redbud, and see the new artwork designed by Sandra and Eric Denneler.  See this article in "Parents" online for some extra tips on how to make your child's check-up go well!

Let your child try, and fail!

I just read a blog entry from one of my recommended links (Motherlode) on the right side of this page.  The entry is entitled "Let Them Climb Trees (and Fall)."  The idea is to let your child make mistakes (and achieve successes) on their own while young and learn from them while under your roof and your guidance. 
This a main theme of "Parenting with Love and Logic" on the recommended reading page of my website.  Take a look!
