As of the 1st week of April, 2014, there are high levels of FLU in the NY Metropolitan area. The best way to protect yourself and your child is to be vaccinated. Practice good hand-washing at all times. Do not share others' food or drinks. According to the NY State Dept. of Health website, the most common underlying condition in children hospitalized with the flu is: "no underlying condition."
FLU VACCINES are still available. FlLU SEASON IS HERE. You may call to speak to a nurse to schedule your child's vaccine. Please call during regular hours. 914-725-0800x28. The flu vaccine is strongly recommended for ALL PERSONS 6 MONTHS OR OLDER. Children under age nine who have never had 2 doses of vaccine in one year need two doses this season (one month apart). All others only need one dose. Those with severe egg allergy should receive the vaccine from their allergists. The flu is a potentially deadly disease, even in healthy persons. The best protection against the flu is a vaccine. And parents, make sure to see your doctors too so you can be vaccinated.

We happily announce the addition of Amanda Menco, M.D. to our practice. Dr. Menco recently completed her pediatric residency training at Cohen Children's Medical Center of New York (North Shore - Long Island Jewish Medical System). Previously, she graduated from Princeton University with a B.A. and earned her medical degree from New York Medical College. Dr. Menco is licensed to practice medicine in New York State and will see patients from birth through 21 years of age. Dr. Menco has performed research in the area of cardiac arrhythmias. She has been a volunteer at the Double-H Ranch for children with life-threatening illnesses. She has also volunteered for Unite for Sight and as a member of the social service team of La Casita de la Salud. In addition, she is an accomplished violist. We strongly believe that Dr. Menco fits into Scarsdale Pediatrics' philosophy of caring for patients and their families by being caring, thorough, knowledgeable and accommodating -- ideals established many years ago by Dr. Edis. Dr. Menco will begin seeing patients in August and we look forward to many happy and successful years as she joins our family.
