With back-to-school season comes…back-to-school kids’ injuries! 🙁 Just because we’re (still) in a pandemic doesn’t mean other accidents aren’t happening. You’d think us parents would get a pass right now? Nope! Good thing our city has amazing pediatric emergency care in Boca Raton at local hospital, West Boca Medical Center. I feel so much better as a mom knowing that they’re there if we need them.
What a summer this has been! Between crazy pandemic variants and the 2020 Summer Olympic Games, the topic of health has dominated the news cycle. What’s really news though is the topic of mental health–it’s making headlines on a global scale for the first time…well, EVER. The big story: Team USA gymnast Simone Biles stepped down from the Olympic Team Finals, not because she hurt herself physically, but because of stress after she didn’t land a vault. The GOAT gymnast put her mental health first. What a novel idea!
Lori Lundin-Fish, PhD, LMFT, owner of Palm Beach Therapy Center and a licensed marriage & family therapist, is impressed by Biles and her decision. I am too!
Plus, being a parent herself, Dr. Lori has been an advocate for mental health as a mom for some time. Continue reading Importance of Mental Health as a Mom | What I Learned from Simone Biles
There’s no need to hold out for a hero any longer, mamas, because I have some amazing news! My favorite pediatric office in town, Boca VIPediatrics, has added top-trained Pediatrician, Alex Ramos-Garcia, M.D. to their amazing team! Whether you have school-aged kids, toddlers, babies, or even one on the way, Dr. Alex is here to save the day for your family by being your “go-to” pediatrician, bestie, and walking/talking parenting manual all-in-one.
In a post-COVID world, I’ve realized a few things:
- My germaphobe status is here to stay.
- My family’s health will always top my list
- Having a relationship with our family’s doctors is one of the things I’m most grateful for!
Since 2014, the family-owned & operated Boca VIPediatrics has been providing Boca parents and their children something no other pediatric smart office currently offers…many somethings, in fact.
Whether it’s a house call for urgent after-hours care, texting/calling/emailing your pediatrician directly on their cell phone 24/7, no wait times at the office, or a virtual visit via video call. These services help parents save valuable time, allowing them them to avoid having to go to the doctor’s office for every little thing. They also help save money by eliminating panicked urgent care or E.R. visits. And then there’s the whole ‘priceless’ factor about saving a mama’s sanity!
