                                                  2024 Financial Policy Changes

There have been changes to our 2024 Financial Policy. We encourage parents and guardians to stay informed on all office polices by reviewing those under the Forms and Policies tab above. These changes include updates to missed and canceled appointments, Saturday appointments, after-hours phone calls with a physician, delayed co-payments, and outstanding balances. If you have any questions, please call our billing staff at 513-871-1183. 

                                                            RSV Injection 

Our physicians briefly want to let you know about a new injection that we may be able to give your child. The medication is called Nirsevimab (brand name Beyfortus). It is a monoclonal antibody for RSV. It is given as a shot and can be given to infants who are currently less than 8 months of age and are entering their first RSV season (typically fall to spring).

RSV is a virus that can cause colds in children and healthy adults but can cause more severe disease in infants, elderly or other immunocompromised individuals. In infants it can cause wheezing and breathing problems and is a leading cause of hospitalizations in this age range.

If you would like to know more about this medication please see here for information from the CDC.

Once you have read the above information, if you are interested you may speak to your child's physician at your next appointment or call the office to let us know that you are interested in an appointment.

 As always, the POHP family wishes everyone safe and healthy Fall and Winter seasons!

It has been announced today, 05/17/2022, that the FDA has approved Pfizer's COVID-19 booster shot for ages 5-11 years. If you are interested in getting the booster shot in our office please send a portal message to the office and we will contact you to get that scheduled!
