Due to a nationwide shortage of influenza tests and Tamiflu, our practice will only be testing and prescribing to high-risk patients. (High-risk patients would be those with immuno-deficiencies, are under two years of age, or live with high-risk individuals e.g. those with morbid obesity, have cancer, or are pregnant.) For those who do not qualify as high-risk, we will not be running flu tests since we will assume that flu-like symptoms are due to flu, nor will we be prescribing Tamiflu.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
Excited to announce our new location in Leander, TX!
'Tis the season! Here's what to do if you suspect flu...
Flu symptoms include a fever of up to 104°, body aches, under-eye redness, and fatigue. If we suspect that your child has the flu, it is not necessary that we see the patient in the office unless the fever exceeds 104° or has lasted for more than four days. We do not prescribe Tamiflu unless your child is below two-years-old, has an immune deficiency (e.g. asthma), or has a high-risk family member at home (e.g. morbid obesity, cancer, pregnancy, etc.). If you have any questions or concerns, please call our offices to speak with a nurse!
