Smoking: We are firmly and unapologetically anti-smoking. We understand that smoking is an addiction, but parents who smoke will be reminded of the risks to their child and themselves at every office visit. This is not meant to be tedious or offensive.
Breastfeeding: We agree that breastfeeding is the ideal nourishing, inexpensive food for term infants and encourage all new mothers to consider breastfeeding their newborns beginning in the hospital. We will do everything possible to help mothers who want to breastfeed. We also understand that not all mothers can breastfeed successfully, and we support mothers who formula-feed their infants as well.
Vaccine Policy: The providers of Paragould Pediatrics care deeply with the health and safety of the children in our care. One of the most vital steps in keeping them healthy is to be current with their childhood immunizations. We follow the recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. With this in mind and for the safety of all the children in our care Paragould Pediatrics, PLLC Vaccine Policy is as follows:
As of March 1, 2018 we will no longer accept new patients who are unvaccinated or on an alternative vaccine schedule. The only exceptions will be children who have documented medical conditions, sever documented reactions, or treatments that preclude them from receiving vaccines. We will exclude them from the policy until they are medically eligible to receive vaccines.
Contraception: Our practice is limited to infants, children and teenagers who are not pregnant or married. Abstinence is the safest, most effective choice for birth control and protection from STDs, as well as for maintaining emotional and physical health for all unmarried young people.
