It is with great sadness that we let our LPG families know of the sudden unexpected death of our beloved Dr. Heather Dews this past Monday 1/10/2022. Dr. Dews was always such a light and positive spirit around the office and always provided such excellent care to her patients. Her kindness and smile are already greatly missed and we extend our deepest condolences to Dr. Dew’s family.
This is a very difficult time at LPG as we grieve the loss of our friend and colleague. But we want to assure our patients that we will continue to provide care for all of our LPG families. If your children were patients of Dr. Dews, please call our office to arrange transfer of care to one of our other physicians.
Due to the high volume of calls regarding COVID19 isolation and quarantine recommendations, we ask that you please refer to the CDC website https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/your-health/quarantine-isolation.html to review the current COVID19 isolation and quarantine recommendations.

Maybe you have been thinking about skipping this year’s flu shot since there were so few cases last year. Think again! Now is not the time to skip a flu shot or even procrastinate. This is true for you and for your child. Should my child get a flu shot? The answer is a resounding YES, and here is why.
The last 18 months have been both frightening and frustrating for parents. The pandemic and everything that occurred around it has upended families and especially children. The CDC has recently issued a health advisory for clinicians and caregivers about the increased interseasonal RSV activity in the southern United States. After thinking we were beginning to see progress with so many Americans getting vaccinated, suddenly we are being told RSV cases are surging. Here’s what parents should know.
It’s that time of year again for the Lincoln Choice Awards! Please nominate us under the health and well-being category for the best medical clinic and pediatric group. Follow the link to get started! https://bit.ly/38F1quo
This may be an upsetting time for children. They may wonder why people are staying home and why they can’t go to school.
Here are some tips on how to talk to children about COVID-19.
Social distancing may be the term we have become familiar with, but to many it has come to mean isolation and loneliness. Loneliness can breed fear, anxiety, and sadness. We hope the need for social distancing will end soon, but while we are living through it, many need some tips for dealing with social distancing.
After 43 years of practicing medicine it is time to turn the page, my last day at The Lincoln Pediatric Group will be September 1st 2020. I will miss the families that I’ve been fortunate to work with the most. My general health is good and it’s time to spend more time with my wife and family.
Our office has weathered the initial portion of the covid-19 pandemic well but statistically this is just getting started… wear masks, sanitize and social distance!
We have wonderful providers in our office who will be able to assume care from me. Thanks again to you all. Dr. Mike Germer
We will send out further instruction on the transition of your child’s care to another doctor soon!
