The Ardmore Avenue bridge is now closed for construction. It is rumored to be closed for the next 24-30 months.
Manoa Rd is closed at Karakung Drive for bridge work also.
This will cause major delays for those of you that currently use Ardmore Ave or Manoa Rd to reach our office. Eagle Road is open but please plan accordingly for delays.

Recent Mumps Outbreak Information
Make sure you and your family are up to date on your MMR vaccine. If you have been in close contact with someone that has contracted the mumps, your local public health authorities or institution will contact you and might recommend that you get an additional dose. These groups are usually those who are likely to have close contact, such as sharing sport equipment or drinks, kissing, or living in close quarters, with a person who has mumps
Your local public health authorities will reach out to you to let you know that you/your child may have been exposed and should receive this dose. If you have not been contacted, then you are not part of this group. If your child already has two doses of MMR, it is not necessary to seek out vaccination unless you are part of this group.
If your child is a college student and the local public health authorities have contacted you or your child to warn of possible exposure, they can go to the health center at their school to receive the additional dose of MMR.
If you are unsure of your child immunization status, please call our office during normal business hours and we will be happy to check the immunization record. We do not have access to these records after hours.
Flu Mist Vaccine
The ACIP voted down use of the LAIV, also known as the "nasal spray" flu vaccine (FluMist) for 2016-2017 flu season. Due to this release by the CDC, our office will not carry the "nasal spray" flu vaccine, but recommends every patient ages 6 months and older receive an annual flu vaccination which we will carry in the injectable form for the 2016-2017 flu season.
