The influenza vaccine is in!!
We still have influenza vaccine! Please call our office now to schedule a nurse appointment for your child to get the influenza immunization. If your child is coming in for a well child care appointment during this time, he or she may also be able to get the influenza vaccine during that visit.
For the 2016-2017 season, only injectable influenza vaccine will be available. The CDC has decided to not release the nasal Flumist this year. Glendale Pediatrics recommends flu vaccine to all children 6 months and older. The very first time that a child receives the flu vaccine (under 8 years of age), it is recommended that he or she receive two doses of the influenza vaccine, separated by aminimum of 4 wekks. Feel free to call our office if you have any questions.
When should a child be introduced to peanuts?
Please refer to this informative webpage from CHLA about introducing peanuts. New studies show it is better to introduce peanuts and other nuts early.
In early 2016, we welcomed our newest pediatrician, Dr. Shirley Lee, to our practice. She works most afternoons. You can read Dr. Lee's bio and see her picture on our "Our Doctors" page.

On this website we have included some general information about our practice, the physicians who work here, our lactation services and medical information that we hope you find helpful. The information on this website does not replace the expertise of a physician.
Our goal is to partner with you.
Our eight physicians have different styles and personalities, but we each share a common philosophy of medicine. Our goal is to partner with you in the care of your child. We strive to take the extra time required to teach you about the different options you have in the care of your child and help guide you through the different stages of your child’s life.
We function as a team.
We see patients from birth through 21 years of age. We function as a team and care for one another’s patients, including visiting and examining newborns in the hospital. For Well Child visits we try to maintain continuity of care for your child with one physician. For Sick Child visits our priority is to see sick children as soon as possible, and you may see one of the other physicians if your regular physician is not available. When calling to schedule your appointment, please know that we schedule our time with you based on your needs. If you have multiple questions or concerns to discuss with the doctor at a well visit, or you have a complicated sick issue, please let us know so we can schedule additional time to best serve you.
Our nurses and staff members are here to support and assist you.
Our office has two waiting rooms, one for well children and one for sick children. During office hours we have nurses whose primary responsibility is to answer your medical questions. The nurses can often help you decide whether or not an appointment is necessary, what your treatment options are, and what symptoms to look for. No one, even experienced parents, should feel embarrassed about asking us questions, no matter how trivial they may seem. Our nurses and staff members are here to support and assist you as we share your child’s journey through the years.
We hope you find you find this website useful. Please contact us at (818) 246-7260 during business hours with any additional questions that the site does not answer.
