News & Updates
As of November 1, 2016:

UPDATED APPOINTMENT POLICY


Lane Pediatrics now utilizes an appointment reminder service that provides you with three reminders prior to your child’s appointment - an email 7 days before, a phone call 48 hours before, and a text message 2 hours before the appointment. It is your responsibility to update us with the appropriate contact information.


If you do not show up to your appointment, without calling ahead to cancel, there will be a $50 missed appointment fee. 

In addition, our office requires a notice of cancellation 24 hours prior to a well child or medication recheck appointment, and at least 1 hour prior to any other appointment (sick visit, nurse visit, etc). Failure to cancel within these guidelines results in a $20 cancellation fee.                                 

These fees will NOT be billed to your insurance, they are your personal responsibility.


UPDATED SELF-PAY RATES


Please see our Financial Information page. Payment is due at time of service.


Hi Everyone,

We pride ourselves on being available to our families after hours, in case of emergency. However, the recent number of non-emergent calls, text messages, emails, and Facebook messages has been overwhelming. As most of you know, our main phone number goes to Dr. Lane's cell phone when the office is closed - please be considerate! Whether you need to schedule an appointment or have questions about your child's symptoms, please try to call between 8:00am and 5:00pm whenever possible, and limit after hours calls to urgent situations only, which cannot wait until the next business day.

Thank you for your understanding!
Dr. Lane & Staff

Measles Update
We've been getting a LOT of questions about the current measles outbreak linked to Disneyland - over 100 people in 14 states have been infected so far, and it is spreading rapidly. We strongly encourage you to make sure your children have received the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine. Typically, the first dose is given between 12-15 months of age, and the second dose at 4-6 years of age. While it's best to get the vaccine as soon as your child reaches the recommended age, it's never too late to get your children caught up. 
We know from many repeated studies that the MMR vaccine is safe and effective - it absolutely does not cause autism or developmental delays. And as the measles outbreak has shown, the virus is incredibly contagious. If you have not been immunized against measles and come near an infected person, you have a 90% chance of getting the measles! An infected person may not show symptoms for 4 days - meanwhile, he or she can expose dozens of people, at the park, grocery store, school, etc. 
Measles affects all organs of the body, and can cause serious and in some cases life-threatening complications in children, including pneumonia and encephalitis. When measles was more common the in US, hundreds of children died from this virus every year. 
Please contact Dr. Lane and staff if you have any questions, or would like to arrange for your child to get the MMR vaccine.
The 2016-2017 School Year has begun!

Unfortunately, that means that dreaded "Back-to-School Plague' has too. On average, elementary school children get 8-12 colds or cases of the flu each school year. For older kids, it's about half that. Here are some simple ways to help keep your children healthy:

1) Keep hands clean. Regular hand-washing dramatically reduces the passing of respiratory and gastrointestinal illness. Teach kids to sing "Happy Birthday" to themselves twice before rinsing - scrubbing for 15-20 seconds is key.

2) Be active every day.
Studies indicate that regular, moderate exercise can reduce the number of cold and flu episodes that occur over the course of a year by 25-50%, possibly by boosting the circulation of infection-fighting cells.

3) Get plenty of ZZZs.
Sleep deprivation nearly doubles the risk of getting a cold or flu. Teenagers need 8-9 hours of sleep nightly, younger children 10-12 hours.

4) Avoid touching your face.
Cold and flu viruses enter the body through the nose, eyes, and mouth, so help your child keep his/her hands away from those areas. Teach your child never to share a straw, cup, or toothbrush.

5) Consume a balanced and healthy diet.
Meals with plenty of colorful fruits and vegetables will help boost your child's immune system. Look for foods rich in vitamin C (broccoli, strawberries, and oranges) and vitamin D (tuna, fortified milk, and cereals).

6) Get the flu vaccine. The Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says it's the single best way to prevent the flu.
