12 Apr, 17 Hear Ye, here ye!

Just a friendly reminder with summer on it's way, there becomes an increased need for physical exams! We want to see everyone once a year but these well visits are especially important for kindergartners, summer camp attendees, college entrance, and fall sports participants among others. Please call to schedule as soon as possible as these appointments fill up rather quickly!

12 Apr, 17 After hours and weekend call service

We use a pediatric after-hours triage service. This service is called Nurse Telephone Triage Service (NTTS) and uses experienced registered nurses to answer after-hours and weekend calls. To access this service, call our office number, 802-388-1338 and you will be transferred to the NTTS. They will provide timely clinical advice and treatment plans based on a patient's symptoms. A record of all calls is sent to Rainbow Pediatrics so that our providers can follow up with patients. This service is utilized by pediatric offices across the country. Please know that if you wish to speak directly with the on call provider, you may do so by requesting this when you speak with a nurse from NTTS. We partner with Middlebury Pediatrics to provide 24/7 call coverage. Both of our practices use this after hours triage service. Acute visits are available on Saturdays and Sundays from 9:00 am to 11:30 am. Please call at 8:00 and the receptionist will schedule your child and let you know which office is providing care. If you have any questions or concerns, your feedback is valued and appreciated.

25 Aug, 15 Our Policy on MMR (Measles-Mumps-Rubella) Vaccine


Measles can be a severe, debilitating, and even deadly illness for children.  It is also highly contagious.  At Rainbow Pediatrics, we care for many patients, who, because of prematurity, immune system problems, or the inability to be vaccinated due to young age, are at high risk for severe consequences of the measles infection.  These patients often have frequent visits at Rainbow Pediatrics, potentially increasing their risk of exposure.

In order to protect all of our patients, including the most vulnerable, the physicians at Rainbow Pediatrics have determined that we must require vaccination against the measles virus.  To join our practice, and to remain in our practice if you already belong, children must recieve the MMR vaccine unless it is medically contraindicated, or a religious exempton, in which case, we would require a letter from you church.

The MMR vaccine is extremely effective and well-tolerated, and we are confident in the safety of this vaccine for your child.  However, we understand if you have concerns or questions regarding this new requirement, and we welcome you to call or schedule an appointment if you would like to discuss it further.

We thank you for your understanding and willingness to help protect both your child, and the most vulnerable members of our practice from this dangerous illness.

Rainbow Pediatrics wants to help you make safe decisions when it coms to your little ones and older children alike.  We often treat infected ear lobes on patients who get their ears pierced elsewhere.  That's why we are now offering Medical Ear Piercing - a sterile procedure that minimizes risk of infection.  This method of piercing ears uses only titanium and medical plastic to avoid nickel allergy or irritation.  Does your child want their ears pierced?  Who more would you trust to pierce their ears than your pediatrician!  Call us today for more information or to make an appointment - 388-1338.
