Dr. Morra has strong feelings regarding antibiotics. Most infections, in some studies up to 80%, are caused by viruses for which taking antibiotics will not be helpful and could even be harmful. Overprescription of antibiotics can cause bacteria (NOT children) to become resistant to a particular antibiotic, thus making it even more difficult to treat. Antibiotic prescriptions will NOT be called in without an office visit.
Antibiotic prescriptions will NOT be refilled over the phone; an additional visit is required.
