Dear Families of Union Pediatrics,
It is with mixed emotions that I am announcing the closure of Union Pediatrics after serving the Union community for nearly fifteen years. It has truly been an honor and privilege to care for your children and watch them grow.
I will be available to continue to provide your children with medical care until February 25th for in person visits and until March 11th for virtual visits. You will need to choose a new physician to care for your children so that care can be continued without interruption. I have spoken to Pediatric Associates of Northern Kentucky (pediatricassociatesnky.com) and they are happy to accept your minor children as patients, should you desire to transfer to their office. Their point person for you is Gina, and she can be reached by calling their main number, 859-341-5400. If you choose to go elsewhere, please send a message through your portal account so that records can be provided to you.
For patients who are 18yr or older, Christ Hospital, St. Elizabeth and UC Health have offices who can see you. Please check their websites for the location nearest you. Please let me know who you choose, so I can forward your records.
Pediatric Associates does not accept Tricare. Cincinnati Children’s Florence, Pediatrics of Florence, Primary Pediatrics (Florence), and St. Elizabeth Physicians do accept Tricare.
At this time, unless your child already has a well child visit scheduled, I will be limiting new appointments for well child visits to those who need immunizations. I will continue to see sick visits in the office.

Dear Union Pediatrics families,
Please read the following updates, which include Phase 1 requirements from the state of KY, and guidelines regarding office changes during the coronavirus outbreak:
First, we are open and available. We do ask that you call first, for any reason. If you need forms completed, we ask that you upload them to the portal. We will complete them and return them through the portal. To help keep each other safe, we ask that you not come to the office for paperwork.
At this time, we are limiting the number of children we see in the office. As much as possible, we will see well visits and newborn hospital follow-ups in the morning. We are asking that those who have ADHD, asthma, or behavioral health follow-ups sign up for our Telemedicine service. (instructions below)
Telemedicine is still the method of choice to be used for any non-well visits, per the state of KY (unless an in-person visit is absolutely necessary) Read more...
