Stay Protected against the Coronavirus

UPDATE on the Coronavirus (COVID-19):

With evolving information, it has come to our attention that anti-inflammatory drugs could worsen the affect of the virus. If you or someone you know may have the virus you should immediately quit taking anti-inflammatory drugs (Motrin, ibuprofen, Aleve, etc..) because it could be an aggravating factor. Due to the lack of information regarding this virus research is still pending.

To ensure the safety of our staff and patients we are now offering a text service to alert you when we are ready to eliminate crowding in the waiting room. To participate in our texting services please follow these short simple steps!

  • When you arrive for your appointment please remain inside your vehicle and call us at (972) 781-1414
  • You will then be checked into your appointment
  • We will then text you when we are ready to bring your child back to be seen
  • You will be brought back to a room immediately following our text to eliminate crowding in the waiting room
