6 Lone Star Circle of Care has expanded its offerings to include 24/7 telehealth options for new patients in September. New patients may now access pediatrics, senior care, family medicine, behavioral health, obstetrics and gynecological services through a virtual visit, with select services available 24 hours a day. New patients previously had to visit an LSCC clinic in person to establish initial care. Lone Star Circle of Care is located at 2423 Williams Drive, Georgetown. 877-800-5722. https://lonestarcares.org 7 Lamppost Coffee is expanding into what was formally Sincerely Yours 1848 on the Georgetown Square. Construc- tion on the expansion will begin Oct. 1, but the completion timeline remains unknown due to the potential for COVID-19 to cause delays. The expansion will include additional seating that can also be rented out to accommodate large

groups as well as an expanded patio. The business—which is celebrating its first anniversary in October—also intends to start offering live music on its patio. Lamppost Coffee is located at 809 S. Main St., Georgetown. 512-913-1974. www.lamppost.coffee 8 St. David’s HealthCare added a new texting service in September to provide families of surgical patients with updates. Given the coronavirus pandemic, hospital visitations and waiting room capacity are limited. This service, available in English and Spanish, will provide families with a unique code allowing them to receive automated texts when the surgery begins, when the patient leaves the operating room, and when the patient is ready for outpatient services or is set to be dis- charged. St. David’s Georgetown Hospital is located at 2000 Scenic Drive, Georgetown. 512-943-3000. https://stdavids.com

Don’t Take Our Word For It I took my 3-year-old son

The whole staff is absolutely amazing and how they care for your child is heartwarming. I recommend taking any child that needs work done to them… you will not be disappointed!

Five stars is just not enough... our experience here was amazing! My 10-year-old son is autistic and almost completely non-verbal. Dental appointments are very traumatizing for him. The doctor and his staff went above and beyond to take care of our needs. Their patience, understanding, and bending over backwards to make him comfortable was just more than I could have ever hoped for!

here for his dental checkup today and he loved it! He didn’t want to leave when we were finished.

I absolutely love this office. From the awesome playroom waiting area to the staff etc. Everything is great!

We are new to the area and my kids LOVED this office and all the employees! Despite the pandemic, they greeted us kindly at the front door and gave us a tour of the facility.
