Applicants should be comfortable with patient triage and vaccinating children.
If you or someone you know would possibly fit this description and are interested in applying, please complete the application and submit your resume.
We are back in business! Roads were clear; Dr. Berry and staff in house today. If your child needs to be seen, please call 972-208-8668. Phones will be answered until 430pm.
We are again closed today due to our crazy Texas weather. Road conditions are very deceiving. Should you have an urgent issue, please call 972-208-8668. In hopes of opening tomorrow, we are following road and weather conditions. Please be safe and stay warm.
In the mean time, grab a coffee and ponder how 9=8. How many times did you have to watch to see it?
A Bright Future Pediatrics will be closing for the day so that our wonderful employees can make it home safely. Many live quite far and have many overpasses to manage.

Thank you for understanding and please stay safe yourselves.
FORMULA RECALL NOTICE:
Abbott is initiating a proactive, voluntary recall of powder formulas, including Similac®, Alimentum® and EleCare® manufactured in their Sturgis, Mich. manufacturing facility. During testing in this particular facility, they found evidence of Cronobacter sakazakii in the plant in non-product contact areas.
We, at A Bright Future Pediatrics, did find that some of our patient samples of these products were affected. We have thrown them all out and had just received the shipment recently. We do not think that more than 4 cans were taken. If you have picked up Similac formula samples from our office or have purchased formula elsewhere recently, please click on the link and see if your can happens to be in one of the lot numbers which are being recalled.
Importantly, they have found that no distributed product has tested positive for the presence of this bacteria, and they will continue to test.
Cronobacter sakazakii is commonly found in the environment and a variety of areas in even your own home. It can cause fever, poor feeding, excessive crying or low energy as well as other serious symptoms.
Home Abbott is initiating a proactive, voluntary recall of powder formulas, including Similac®, Alimentum® and EleCare® manufactured in Sturgis, Mich., one of the company’s manufacturing facilities. The recall does not include any metabolic deficiency nutrition formulas.
BABY IT'S COLD OUTSIDE!
As we will not see above freezing temps until tomorrow afternoon, we will have to call another ICE DAY out of the office tomorrow, Feb 4, 2022. We continue to have a physician on call 24/7. If you feel your child needs to be seen and it cannot wait until our office opens on Monday, please call 972-208-8668, and if our on call physician feels it is safe to care for your child via telehealth we can, or refer you to a trusted Urgent Care staffed by physicians, or the ER if needed.
A Bright Future Pediatrics plans to reopen at our normal business hours on Monday, Feb 2. 2022.
We would LOVE to see more pics of the kids making memories in the snow. Be Safe. Stay Warm. Have FUN. Make Memories!
THIS is Texas weather! Who is ready for some ice and snow...or not? We generally don't call snow/ice days early; however, as all schools have closed, the weather looks to be a couple days strong with icy, unsafe travel conditions, and as the building will be closed, we are closing our office tomorrow (February 3, 2022)
BUT WAIT! Our PHYSICIANS are still here for YOU!
Dr Berry plans to see her scheduled behavioral tele-health visits from her home office. If your child is sick and you do not think it can wait until the office reopens, please call 972-208-8668 to speak with the on-call physician. We can schedule a telehealth visit and if we can safely provide the care needed we will; if not, we can discuss our referral preferences to a trusted Pediatric Urgent Care.
Tomorrow evening/Friday morning we will reassess travel conditions, to notify you of further closures.
Be safe in your sledding and snowball shenanigans. Most importantly have fun making memories! Put down the technology and just have some good old-fashioned fun outside. While you are at it, snap some pics and share a pic in comments.
Our internet is down which also means our phone system is down. We are working on forwarding our main number to an office cell phone. We are so sorry for this inconvenience. We are frustrated by this, especially Dr Berry, as we know how much she loves technology!
Thank you for understanding. We will let you know as soon as internet and phones are back up.
Our awesome staff at A Bright Future Pediatrics has been able to vaccinate our entire waitlist plus. As such, we are not planning to have a Saturday vaccine clinic this weekend. If you desire to have your child between 5-11 yrs of age vaccinated against COVID 19 please call 972-208-8668 to schedule an appointment.

Happy National Dessert Day! Oops, someone already claimed a couple pieces. Maybe we should check triglycerides on the staff today to see who dove in. What is your most favorite dessert?
On world Mental Health Day, we at A Bright Future Pediatrics send virtual hugs and peace today. As COVID -19 has caused a significant increase in mental health issues over the past 19 months. COVID-19 infection created some directly, by infection, however most are indirect from the social ramifications of quarantine, fear, and loss of loved ones.
“Researchers were able to estimate that depression rose worldwide by 53.2 million cases, equating to an increase of 27.6% due to the pandemic. This spike brought the total global prevalence for major depressive disorder to 3,153 cases per 100,000 population.
As for anxiety disorders, an estimated 76.2 million new cases were brought on by the pandemic, corresponding to somewhere between a 64.3% to 90.6% spike in cases. These new cases brought the total global prevalence of anxiety disorders to approximately 4,802 cases per 100,000 population.” Data from The Lancet.
Did you know that 120,000 children have lost at least one parent to COVID-19 already? It is unknown how many children have entered the foster care system due to this pandemic yet. This breaks our heart for these kids.
At A Bright Future Pediatrics, we have additional Pfizer COVID -19 vaccine for those 12+ in need. If you are a parent/caregiver and you have not yet received or completed your COVID-19 vaccination, please call us at 972-208-8668 to schedule your appointment today.
We're doing our best to help ensure our patients and families remain healthy. As the vaccine has not been approved for the 5 -11 year old population, we are not yet scheduling for this group, however you can request to have your child on the wait list to receive the vaccine if it is approved. Remember, if we feel safe giving this to our own children we will offer it to our patients. Stay safe, stay healthy.
Happy Labor Day from all of us at A Bright Future Pediatrics!
We are closed Monday, Sept 6 to allow our staff quality time with their loved ones in celebration of every working person. We will resume normal office hours on Tuesday, Sept 7 with phones answered from 830am to 430pm to schedule patients needing to be seen. Of course, one of our Board Certified Pediatricians is on call for the office while we are closed (24/7) in the event an emergency should arise. Have fun and be safe!
We are so sad to announce that Dr. Sarah Rylie, who has been a part of our team for the last 12 years, will be retiring from clinical practice after September to pursue a career in non-clinical medicine. She will be missed, but she is confident in Dr. Berry and Dr. Maun to continue to provide excellent care for her patients. If you see Dr. Rylie around our clinic, please wish her well as she moves into this new opportunity.
If you or anyone you know age 12 or older wants to receive a Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine (1st OR 2nd dose), we have several leftover from our current lot. They will expire Wednesday so must be given today or tomorrow. Call us at 972-208-8668 if you'd like to receive one. You do not need to be a patient in order to receive the vaccine.
Fun Friday! 😂
Show us your pics!
Let’s see your first day of school pics if your kids start back today!
Dallas ISD Makes Masks Mandatory as Students Return to Classrooms
In updated guidance for the 2021-22 school year, the American Academy of Pediatrics strongly recommends in-person learning and urges all who are eligible to be vaccinated to protect against COVID-19.
In addition to vaccinations, the AAP recommends a layered approach to make school safe for all students, teachers and staff in the guidance here. That includes a recommendation that everyone older than age 2 wear masks, regardless of vaccination status. The AAP also amplifies the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s recommendations for building ventilation, testing, quarantining, cleaning and disinfection in the updated guidance.
