They are quick but efficient, they listen to you. If you don't like one provider - definitely ask to see another. Sometimes as a parent you just don't click with someone. I have seen every provider there, including Dr. Draker and everyone has been amazing. They hold a flu clinic so you can just go in and get your flu shot for your kids without having to spend a bunch of time there."

A Letter from Dr. Dracker  dated 04/02/2021

Dear Parents,

Since I was a child, I always consider the Easter weekend the unofficial start of spring, since the weather always seemed to improve over the following weeks. Life, temperatures and precipitation in Central New York, however, are unpredictable to say the least.  Every morning lately seems to be terribly redundant for me, other than being faced with new clinical challenges when I see my patients.  I keep waiting to here that there are NO new COVID cases and there are NO hospitalized patients dealing with the after-effects of an infection.  Spring however generally indicates rebirth, renewal and growth, aspects which are positive and optimistic by nature.  We know that the available COVID vaccines work, and we all recognize that the continued use of masks, good hygiene and distancing are very effective measures to avoid.  Hopefully we will be able to vaccinate children down to the age of six months and hopefully our altered reality will slowly return to normal.  But we are not there yet but I feel we are in the home stretch! 

So please be careful, especially if you are traveling out of the area this week. I realize most of the children will be returning to school next week, to everyone’s relief, however, it will most likely result in increased risks infections and illness, and not just COVID related.  For the most part our children have not been together as groups, which has contributed to the unprecedented low rates of respiratory tract infections.  Although I am hopeful that it will not be the case, we may experience a significant increase in illnesses in children, which we will need to closely evaluate. 

I am hopeful that our lives, and society in general, will soon return to normalcy and please know that we are here to help you care for your children.  Have a wonderful and enjoyable Easter and remain kind, healthy and caring towards each other.  

Sincerely, 

Dr. Dracker
