Happy Anniversary from Muskegon Pediatrics
This week we are celebrating two amazing years as Muskegon Pediatrics. Thank you for the privilege of caring for your children. We pledge to offer you the very #BESTCARE.
New National Suicide and Crisis Hotline
988 This is the new national number to dial if you, your child, or a loved one is experiencing a time of crisis or thoughts of suicide. A time of crisis is substance use, stress, mental health problems, emotional distress, etc. Calling this number will get you in touch with a crisis counselor who will help you at that moment and provide further resources. Please share this number with others, just dial 988 on a cell phone or landline.
It is that time of the year that schools are collecting forms for the coming school year.
If your child has had a check up and needs a form completed, you can send it to us through your child’s portal, found at www.muskegonpediatrics.com or call the office.
Most kindergarteners will need their hearing and vision checked for registration. If your child has had a check up in the last year, we did those at the check up and we provide you with the information.
If your child has not had a check up yet, please call 231-638-4120 to schedule an appointment.
If your child will be in 7th -12th grade, they will need a sports physical form on file at the school to participate in school sports. At Muskegon Pediatrics, the sports physical is part of the yearly well exam. Please call 231-638-4120 to schedule your child’s well exam appointment.
We are required by OSHA to continue wearing masks in our office. Please come with a mask to your appointment.
If you are in need of diapers, wipes, clothing, underwear, bras, feminine products, soap, toothbrush/toothpaste or deodorant please call our office so we can help, 231-638-4120.
If you are able to donate to our care closet, we appreciate any donations of toiletries, diapers, and wipes.
We have the Pfizer vaccine for ages 6 months and older available in our office, call to schedule an appointment, 231-638-4120. If you have any questions about these vaccines, please call or send a message in your child’s portal.
A booster vaccine is recommended for anyone who received the 2 doses of COVID vaccines AND it has been 5 months since the second vaccine. Please call if you have any questions or would like to schedule your child’s booster vaccine before school starts.
There are two ways to request a prescription refill.
You can call our office and leave a message on the prescription refill line.
You use the portal to request a refill.
We do not receive requests or honor prescription refills from pharmacies. Please contact our office first if you are in need of refills.
