Farewell to Dr. Gonzalez

September 15th, 2022 abcdpedi

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Thank you for your trust and confidence in allowing me to care for your children for the past 18 years. It has been an honor and privilege for me, so it is with mixed emotions that I announce that effective October 14, 2022, I will no longer be practicing at ABCD Pediatrics.

You can continue to receive excellent healthcare from any one of my colleagues at the Stone Oak office, including Dr. Janae Maher and Dr. Eesha Farooqi.

ABCD Pediatrics will remain as the custodian of your medical records, and your records can only be released or transferred with your permission.  If needed, an Authorization to Release or Disclose Form is available at any of our offices, or on our website under downloadable forms. If you have any questions or concerns, please call the office at (210) 494-2223.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you for your support.  It has truly been a pleasure and a privilege caring for your children.

Una breve nota para mis hispanohablantes.

Me siento honrada por su confianza estos 18 años y estoy verdaderamente agradecida por la oportunidad de ser testigo de la buena salud y el desarrollo de sus hijos.

Ser de confianza para cuidar y conocer a tus hijos es un sueño cumplido. Muchísimas gracias.

Sincerely,

Jessica M Gonzalez, M.D.

Information About Polio

August 16th, 2022 abcdpedi

Polio can cause serious illness in some people.  Because of this, we routinely immunize our patients to protect them against Polio infection.   Polio vaccines are routinely given at our patient’s 2 month, 4 month, 6month, and 4 year old well visits.  The polio vaccine is 99% effective at preventing serious polio illness, and we recommend that all of our patients be fully immunized.

More information here.

Information on Monkeypox

August 9th, 2022 abcdpedi

Currently, the risk of monkeypox infection to the public remains low. Individuals should be aware of the symptoms of monkeypox and seek medical attention if they experience new, unexplained rashes or skin lesions. Recently identified cases have involved skin lesions in the genital, groin, and anal regions that might be confused with rashes caused by common diseases such as herpes and syphilis. Other early symptoms of monkeypox include fever, chills, and swollen lymph nodes. More information here.
