Important Notice for Asthmatics on Inhaled (Flovent, Qvar, Pulmicort) or Oral (prednisone) Steroids
New recommendations have come out regarding the use of both inhaled and oral steroids during the coronavirus pandemic. We strongly recommend you make a Telehealth visit with your child's PCP or a Pediatric NP to review your child's asthma and allergy medication plan. Spring is a great time to do this in any case.

Lactation Consulting Now Available at PANF
Breast milk is considered the optimal nutrition for infants in the first year of life. Sometimes, making breastfeeding successful for both the infant and the mother is difficult. A international board certified lactation consultant (IBCLC) can help ease the process. PANF is excited to announce that our terrific nurse practioner, Pam Bajada NP IBCLC , is now a certified lactation consultant. Pam is available for lactation consulting to all nursing mothers or mothers who plan to nurse. Call the office or ask your doctor about it at your baby’s next check up.
