Scheduled Appointments and Walk-Ins
We are happy to accept walk-ins in addition to our scheduled appointments. As the practice has grown, the wait time for walk-ins may be longer than it was years ago. Sometimes you may still be able to get in with 10-15 minutes, yet other times it could be 30-40 minutes or more. On very busy days before holidays or vacation sometimes our schedule is completely full.
Remember that you can always call Shawna to get an idea of when the best times are to come in, even on the same day. You are still welcome to walk-in without calling, we just want you to be aware that we may not always be able to fit you right in.
We do take care with our schedule to make sure there is time each day for unexpected last minute injuries. We also limit the number of new people we accept into the practice each week so that we can best accommodate all of you! Thank you.

Study Suggests Laboring Before C-Section Beneficial
A new study published in JAMA shows that laboring before pregnancy may provide health benefits to the baby. According to this article in from the New York Times, babies born from emergency C-sections where the mother spent some time in labor are generally healthier long term than babies born during a planned, labor free C-section.
When a baby is born naturally they are exposed to bacteria from the mother that may help boost their immune system. Even if a baby is born during an unplanned C-section they still get some exposure to that bacteria. Labor also provides many physical and hormonal changes that help the baby as they grow up.
