Early Bird Drop-Ins: SUSPENDED

Birdhouse logo.rightYour family’s health is our primary concern, and for that reason we are suspending our early bird drop-in appointments due to the COVID19 pandemic. This will allow us to coordinate care for sick children and continue to provide necessary wellness services including important immunizations.

Dr. Asta has offered early bird drop in appointments since 1996. They are an excellent way for parents to get things checked first thing in the morning. We hope to bring them back when it’s prudent to do so.

Please call the office for all same day sick appointments. You may also leave a voice mail and staff will call you in the morning to schedule an in-person appointment or telemedicine. We have same day sick appointment slots throughout the day.
