To the Patients/Parents of Dr. Jane Hull
Dr. Hull will be transitioning out of Preferred Pediatrics in February 2023.
Dr. Hull may have prescribed certain medication or provided access to substances that the rest of the providers will not continue to endorse. Please contact the office immediately so that we may aid you during the next 3 months in securing an appropriate provider.
Preferred Pediatrics will still be able to continue routine pediatric care and immunizations.
