We are closing out 2015 which Dr. Maria Bernardez says, "was a very good year". So far it has been a warm winter, which has helped keep everyone's kids and families healthy. The Flu has not been bad this year, however Dr. Bernardez still recommends everyone getting their Flu shot as it does protect not just you and your children but also anyone else they come into contact with, such as grand parents, babies, friends, seniors, and other relatives. Also since the Winter isn't over yet, (actually it has just begun), it is still possible for the Influenza to affect us. The sooner your family is protected, the better.
We have welcomed in a lot of new families, new parents, babies, friends this past year. Our Beacon pediatric office has really grown. A lot of families have moved up into the Orange County /Dutchess County area of the Hudson Valley, many from Brooklyn and are getting to know us at Orange Pediatric Care. Evelyn Santiago FNP-BC, Chana Jacobson PNP-BC, and Dr. B all have that wonderful bedside manner, compassionate care, and professionalism that come with being Board Certified practitioners.
Plans for 2016 are to finally get new floors in the exam rooms and waiting area in our New Windsor Office. The current ones are very old and just crummy looking. As we now have a new lease it is appropriate to be able to invest a little in the 3206 Rt. 9 W New Windsor, NY 12553 building. We are also looking to improve the lighting in our New Windsor Pediatric Office and to continue to build up the style of our Beacon office. We want to not just have friendly professional care for your children but also make going to the doctors not just about vaccinations.
We hope that all of our families and everyone has a wonderful, happy, healthy, and and adventurous New Year!
