Greetings to all our families, friends and patrons
As we close out 2016 and begin a new year here at CHILD & Associates. I want to share some exciting updates. We celebrated our 10th Anniversary in style. Thank you very much to those who were able to join us. You spoke and we heard you! Our vision is to always provide you with the latest and most comprehensive care possible. With that in mind we will be providing some new intriguing health services beginning in 2017.
First and foremost, we shall be expanding our staff. Please welcome our new Office Manager Dalene Orleans- Lindsay. A graduate of Ashesi College, Ms. Orleans-Lindsay brings a solid business and administrative skill set to the clinic. We also look forward to ramping our patient base and with that in mind, we welcome Dr. Yovanna Pinto, a talented physician with over 20 years of medical experience.
Continuing our program growth we will be offering the following 3 clinic services:
It seems like yesterday that my twins were in the throes of adolescent. Having run an award-winning Teen Clinic in the US, I know how difficult this time can be. Starting this month, we’re offering 30-minute consults to discuss strategies for raising health adolescents. We’ll cover everything from sexual health and effective communication about sex, to puberty benchmarks and red flags. Dr. Castor and Dr. Baffour will lead this.
SKIN CARE 101
As we mothers get older, it becomes more important to take good care of our skin. Many of us know the basics (cleanse, hydrate, exfoliate) but overlook the details. For example, please answer the following:
True False Drinking water helps hydrate the skin
True False Applying lotion in upward motions helps prevent sagging
True False Cold water makes pores smaller
True False Eating chocolate causes breakouts
If you “False” to any statement above, our new 30-minute Skincare consults are for you!
DIET NO MORE!!
FACT IS – Fad diets don’t work. The good news is: You’re in the right place. Accra provides the perfect context for managing your weight! You can drink water all the time; you can buy fresh produce any time; and with the right information, you can prepare amazingly healthy meals. If you want to slim down, tone up, or get serious about keeping your family healthy, our new on-line and in clinic Nutrition Consults will help.
If you don’t have time to come in but need medical advice, simply schedule a fax consult. I’ll get back to you within 24 hours. As always, if it’s an emergency, please bring your child to the office or an emergency room. If you’re not sure whether it’s an emergency, call the office and our receptionist will walk you through the checklist (available on our website). After 6pm, go straight to an Emergency Room.
It goes without saying, thank you for making CHILD & Associates your choice for all of your health care needs in 2016 and we look forward to continuing to service you and your loved ones in 2017.
Happy Holidays to all and have a safe and prosperous New Year!
Dr. Juliette & Staff
