Affinity Pediatrics to Hold Patient Appreciation Day May 19th

 A service of Tift Regional Health System (TRHS), Affinity Pediatrics will be holding a Patient Appreciation Day on May 19 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The festivities for children will include a dunking booth, bounce house, face painting, games, door prizes, giveaways and more. There will also be complimentary hot dogs and chips as well as live music. The general public is invited to this free event.

“This is a day to celebrate children and their health,” said Robin Rust, practice manager for Affinity Pediatrics. “Along with our partner in Irwin County, Ocilla Pediatrics, we are the largest pediatric provider in the region. We appreciate the trust and support we receive from local parents, and this event is a way to say thanks.”

The Patient Appreciation Day will be held at Affinity Pediatrics, located at the Cypress Pointe Professional Park in Tifton at 39 Kent Road, Suite 5. Registration is not needed and attendees are not required to be patients of the practice.

“We are also using this event to remind parents to schedule their child’s annual wellness exam,” said Rust. “Many people don’t realize that Medicare, Medicaid and most health insurance carriers cover a wellness exam with no out-of-pocket expense to the patient. Pediatric wellness checks allow parents and providers to create a team approach to healthcare, which promotes the developmental, emotional and physical health of the child, and allows pediatricians to learn more about each individual child.”

The providers at Affinity Pediatrics include Dixie Griffin, M.D., F.A.A.P., Henry LeBoyd, M.D., Flavia Rossi, M.D., F.A.A.P., Rebecca Staub, M.D., F.A.A.P., Teresa Stewart, M.D., F.A.A.P., Kimberly Works, M.D., Keri Altman, FNP-C, Ramona Cawley, FNP-C, Monica Davis, FNP-C, Alisha Holloway, NP-C, Kelly Grummer-Smith, FNP-C, Sharon Petzel, PA, Allison Presley, FNP-C and Lyn Parson, NP.

August is Here - Time to Immunize!

August 1, 2018 by Molly Huff

Now that it's August, the children in our lives are returning to school.  Along with notebooks, pencils and back-to-school clothes, Affinity urges you to also give some attention to vaccinations.

August has been designated Immunization Awareness Month, and this is a great time to remember the importance of vaccinations and the benefits of being immunized.

Immunization is considered one of the most significant public health achievements of the 20th century.  Vaccines have eradicated small pox, polio and have greatly decreased the number of cases of measles, diphtheria, rubella, whooping cough and other diseases.  Even chicken pox, which most of us remember as a rite of passage, has been almost eliminated from the lives of our children.

It is of utmost importance for everyone to be vaccinated to prevent outbreaks of serious diseases.  Please contact Affinity Pediatrics to schedule your child's vaccinations.
