Important Message

We want to acknowledge that availability of both well-child and sick visit appointments has been unusually low. We have been balancing transition existing LPG families to their new LPG primary care provider, which adds additional time spent building relationships and learning patient health history. Already we are experiencing a high volume of sick patients; which is unusual this early in the season. We ask for you patience and understanding when interacting with our committed team. They come to work each day with out patients and their families in mind.  » Read more about: Important Message  »

Formula Shortage Info

We know that some families are having difficulties finding their infant’s usual formula right now due to nationwide formula shortages.  No store brands were involved in the recall.  Most babies will tolerate a switch between formula ‘types’ with minimal difficulty or only a few days of some mild GI discomfort as they get used to a different type. Of course if your baby has medical reasons to be on a specific formula it’s important to talk with your doctor before doing something different,  » Read more about: Formula Shortage Info  »
