Hello All,

Today my heart breaks for our office....Yesterday we had 24 patients show up for appointments.
29 DID NOT....

Its hard to believe that we have been able to put in place, ALL the regulations piled on us through the ACA in the last 10 years....( Look around most independent physician offices have not survived and merged with hospital groups) We survived a tornado last year, even though, we were hit, we are grateful it wasn't worse(we lost our roof, siding, sign, dumpster cage, and several trees).....but we kept moving forward.....And now, COVID, we have made our office as safe as we can, following All the mandated Covid regulations for both Small business and medical offices....We have implemented our patient portal and telehealth opportunities as well.

But yet, our patients, the ones we care for, (for 3 generations now, know this is not meant for all of you)
Are going to be our demise.....

PLEASE hear our PLEA!!!!
We need you!!! We need you to come to your appointments, We need you to schedule your well child visits and do not reschedule, cancel or NO SHOW them... We need you to share this information with your family and friends, and encourage them to keep appointments.

So if you are thinking, this is not my problem, then please remove your family from our office because we can no longer take the hits that come with open appointment slots at the end of the day, due to lack of consideration to us and our staff....

If there is anything we can do better, please let us know, We are open to your comments and suggestions, but PLEASE share and get the word out....WE NEED YOU!!!!

As Always, Much Love and Stay Safe!

Tami Caro

Whose with me???🤣

This Quarantine has me like...

[05/26/20]   Hello All...
At Caro Pediatric Center we have always tried to make you, our patients and parents our top priority.
We battled many obstacles in the 30 years we have served the Dayton Community, including tornados, financial hardships, Dr Caro's many back surgeries and now the COVID19 pandemic....
We are still an independent physician owned office, one of a very small few that are still left. So we have no large networks to soften our blows... Why am I sharing this? Because I am sending a plea....
This MORNING, we had 15 out of 40 patients that did not come to their scheduled appointments.
Are staff showed up, so they will be paid.... but how are we suppose to keep our office available to you, when we have no support?
I wish I could say this is something new, but its NOT!!! It is an every day occurence that has been going on for years(way before Covid was a thing).
However, it MUST STOP!!! We love taking care of your children, our staff has gone beyond making our office a safe environment.
We need YOUR support more than ever. PLEASE make your Well Child Visit appointments and KEEP them....We need you, all of your support, and we need it now!!!
As always, it is still out of the love for our community that we continue to fight for our place in it...♥️
Please Share!!!!

cloth face masks for children

Do you have questions about kids and face masks? What ages should wear them? And when? What if kids are scared seeing everyone in masks or if they don't want to wear one?

We are answering these questions and more on today's blog: 4/16/20blog post cloth face masks for children By now you have probably heard that the CDC has released recommendations that people should wear face masks when the 6 feet of social distancing cannot be achieved. While most kids are spending their time at home or in their own backyards away from othe...

[05/02/20]   Good Morning All,
We have heard a lot of crazy things regarding the Covid 19 virus and we will be sending an official update through our portal and texting system this week. However, here are some very simple truths I thought interesting. But first let me say this is a global health crisis not a political war.

1. The Coronavirus is NOT the flu,
the infection rate is 20 times higher. Please stop saying it’s the flu.

2. H1N1 was not worse than Covid-19, it killed approx 12,500 Americans in ONE YEAR. Covid-19 has killed close to 60,000 Americans now in 6 weeks.

3. Covid-19 CANNOT be destroyed by blowing hot air down your throat, drinking bleach or injecting yourself with disinfectant.

4. THIS IS NOT A MEDIA CREATION. The media wants this over as soon as possible because of massive losses in advertising revenue.

5. Barack Obama did NOT fail to create a test for Covid-19. You cannot create a test for a virus that doesn’t exist yet.

4. FREEDOM is a set of competing rights. Your right to ignore social distancing-rules does NOT supersede my right and my family’s right to stay alive.

5. YouTube is NOT a reliable source of information and 95% of FB ‘doctors’ have no idea what they’re talking about.

6. There is no evidence that Americans will develop herd immunity.

7. Bill Gates did NOT create the virus so he can implant a brain chip in your head.

8. The virus does NOT care about your politics.

9. Covid-19 is NOT the 19th coronavirus on record. It was discovered in 2019, hence the name.

10. To date, in 2 months we’ve lost now MORE Americans from Covid-19, than died in 10 years during the Vietnam War.

[04/18/20]   After reading this, I admire Dr. Acton even more.

The story of Doctor Amy Acton
written in 2019 by Todd Franko in the Youngstown Vindicator which has closed. She comes from Youngstown ...

Dr. Amy Acton had no expectation last winter to be picked by Gov. Mike DeWine as the director of the Ohio Department of Health.

She had never met DeWine. She says she’s as nonpolitical as they come. And she smiles when politely dodging who she voted for – which says she either didn’t vote or voted for the other guy.

So when he called her about the vacancy, she let it all out about what was wrong with Ohio public health care and what needed to be done differently – after all, she wasn’t going to get the job. Well, she got the job.

What she must have said was surely powerful. But how she said it was probably more powerful. She unloaded on me about vital Ohio health needs for 30 minutes nonstop. Then I asked her my second question.

It comes from a passionate soul. It comes from a feisty spirit.

But mainly, it comes from Youngstown

Abused, abandoned, neglected, working a gig life before there was a name for it, figuring it out on her own and making up rules as she needed to. She did this not just for her, but also for her younger brother. And it started at age 3.

“My parents met at a theater party for YSU and got pregnant unexpectedly ...” is how Amy starts. It does not get better for a long, long time.

It was the 1960s. Her mom was an artist; dad talked mom into marriage; a younger brother came in; and then came divorce when Amy was 3.

“It got out of control. Custody [back then] always went to the mom. My dad tried to get custody of us,” she said.

“Out of control” meant 18 or so homes in her first 12 years scattered around the North Side – mom, brother, Amy and many, many pets. One place literally was a basement – bare walls, sump pump, boxes and a bed.

More troublesome than the nomadic lifestyle were the men in mom’s life. Amy calls them a “cast of characters.”

At one point in childhood, they moved to California. Mom got into a fight with whoever was the man at that time. So they traveled back home. They got as far as Nebraska. Mom got a job to earn money; she met a guy; she put her kids – age 8 and 5 – on a bus alone back to here to live with relatives. Three months later, mom, too, was home, and the cycle continued.

“I have so many crazy stories. ... I spent so much time being scared as a kid, but also navigating the adult world,” Amy said.

One guy finally hung around for marriage. That’s when Amy’s life got worse. She was between age 9 and 12.

The guy had accusations of molestation events in his past, she said. With his abuse of Amy, there was finally enough evidence that officials were called in and criminal charges were filed.

It was winter, and the family was living in a tent in a campground outside Youngstown.

“I was lucky that it got bad enough, because it got me out of there.”

She was finally able to move in with her dad and his relatives. Her Liberty life kicked in, and it would be a better life. Money was always tight. But they were safe and there was food. She eventually would become Liberty homecoming queen – Class of 1984.

But no one ever knew her story.

“It’s hard to tell people about this because it makes kids uncomfortable,” she said about her younger years. “So you just keep it all in.”

She’s more at ease talking about it as an adult. But the tears still come as if it were yesterday.

Her dad, Jerry, died a few years ago. Her brother lives in Colorado.

She hasn’t seen or heard from her mom since a day in court after that long-ago arrest.

“In the courthouse after they were charged, I went to give her a kiss, and she just turned her cheek away. That was the last time I ever saw her.”

Out on bond, mom and her husband skipped town and have not been heard from since.

Amy’s medical interest grew from a hospital visit as a child. She wanted to be nice and nurturing like the staff. In that dank North Side basement, she heard on radio about a medical school attached to Youngstown State University. It became her obsession.

“My dad always told me I could be in life whatever I wanted to be.”

And now with the state of Ohio’s health as her job description, she is set to go. With Youngstown first, she said.

DeWine visited The Vindicator newsroom one last time Thursday. On his way out, I asked him about his hire – Dr. Acton.

He looked up through his blue-framed glasses and offered this with a wry smile:

“She’s special, isn’t she?”

Amy’s tale is likely my last one as a daily newsroom editor – which I’ve been since 1989. I wanted to end with a story like Amy’s.
(From me
This is last story ever printed in the Youngstown Vindicator. No one could foresee what is happening today but I am so glad that Ohio has Doctor Amy Acton along with Governor DeWine trying desperately to stop the spread of Covid 19 to save countless lives.)

Email Todd Franko at [email protected]. Find him on Facebook, Linked-In or on Twitter at @tfranko. And you will still find him around Youngstown for a few more years.
