Big Changes Ahead. . . . . .

Starting in July 2014 Dr. Bain will be
hosting Group Visits forpreventative visits (well child checks) for
ages 12 months and younger as well as chronic medical issues
including eczema, allergies and ADHD.
What to Expect
When you arrive for your appointment
you will be escorted to a private exam room where your child will
receive a quick exam from Dr. Bain and address some specific or
very short issues.
You and your child will then meet in the group visit room with
other parents and with children the same age or the same medical
diagnosis depending on the type of visit. In this casual
environment we hope that parent's will
chat and get to know each other.
Dr. Bain will come in and talk on some
very specific topics related to your child's age or medical
condition. For instance, at the 1 Month Well Child Check one of the
topics will be Optimal Nutrition for the Breastfeeding Mom.
At the 6 month Well Child Check one of the topics will be Optimal
First Foods for Your Baby. At the Eczema visit the Topic will
be focused on our Healing Program.
Then we can break out and those that
need vaccines or will go back to an exam rooms where a nurse will
be waiting for you or to check out to schedule lab appointment. .

Many participants find that they learn
a great deal from these appointments as parents share experiences
and advice during the discussion. All the participants will either
be the same age or experience the same chronic medical issue
depending on the type of group visit. A blog will be set up for
each group so you can share with others in your group outside of
All participants sign a privacy and
confidentiality agreement and the visit is billed as a typical
office visit with your usual co-pay. Participation is voluntary so
if you prefer traditional individual appointments, you may still
schedule them at any time. Shared medical appointments or group
visits offer another alternative for your health care - and you
will likely find them very educational and enjoyable as well!
