Office Philosophy

Our office is bright and colorful, but is not 'juvenile', so that the office is pleasant for children, adolescents, and adults. Our philosophy is to make office visits as non-threatening as possible to young children. We avoid white coats and uniforms. We emphasize preventive care and patient education as per the guidelines of the American Academy of Pediatrics and American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians.

Office Hours

Our office is open from 9 AM to 7 PM Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, 9 AM to 5 PM Friday and 9 AM to 12 Noon on Saturday.
From September to June we have one Saturday per month off and from June to August we are open every other Saturday.

Please call the office for all appointments, as doctors can be out of the office for a part of the day. There are no walk-ins. This office offers flexible hours to accommodate most patients? schedules. For your convenience, evening and weekend appointments are available. We also accommodate patients needing emergency care.

Every effort is made to keep waiting time in the office to a minimum. However, emergencies arise, and some patients need more time than others. If we do fall behind, we hope you will understand. Please remember that you could be the patient that requires extra attention. If you find it inconvenient to wait, we will be glad to reschedule your appointment.

Should you need to cancel your appointment, please notify the office at least 24 hours in advance so that other patients can be scheduled for the vacated time slot.

Infection Control

In order to better protect your family from infections, we accepted following infection control policy.

We do emphasize the importance of prophylactic vaccinations for adults and children. Only fully immunized children are accepted in our practice. We respect parents? right to refuse immunizations for religious, philosophical or any other reason, but we consider un-immunized children a potential risk for the spread of infectious diseases. Therefore all children in our practice have to be immunized according to the recent recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and the American Academy of Pediatrics. We do stock the full line of vaccines routinely recommended for teenagers and adults.

For the same reason, we dedicate special examination room for infants; sick and healthy children are separated by time as much as possible; potentially contagious patients must enter through the separate entrance and there are no toys in the waiting room.

On-Call Coverage

Drs. Gordina and Goldman do take all their after-hours calls themselves. Cross-coverage with reputable local doctors is always arranged in rare cases when doctors are not available.
