Because of the evolving situation regarding COVID-19 our guidelines and recommendations for appointments may change frequently. Please check here or our Facebook page for updates.

We are currently encouraging telehealth visits. All sick patients calling in will be asked to speak to a physician or nurse practitioner. We will try to handle most concerns over the phone or a FaceTime/Skype-type visit. If necessary, we will still be able to see you in the office.

If you are coming into the office for a well visit please notify staff BEFORE you come in if anyone coming in (your child or the adult accompanying them) has a fever, cough, runny nose, congestion or sore throat.

We will continue to separate well and sick visits. We are taking all available precautions to keep you and our staff safe and healthy. Thank you for your patience and cooperation during this pandemic.

We are pleased to announce that Sandra Hoerr DNP, CPNP-PC will be joining our practice in
mid-September. She will be practicing in both the Bel Air and Havre de Grace offices. She is
looking forward to meeting each and every one of you. Please help us extend a warm welcome
to her!

Check your child's vitamins!  Several types of liquid medications including multivitamins, Vitamin D drops, stool softeners and one antihistamine have been recalled due to possible bacterial contamination.  If your child is taking one of the medication on this list, stop giving it and call your pharmacy to receive a replacement.
