COVID-19 UPDATE

Appointments & Safety Procedures

Dearest patients,

We hope these uncertain times find you and your family in good health. Our office is open and we are following best practice guidelines for keeping our patients and staff healthy.  Please make note of the following adjustments.

We will schedule well patients during morning office hours 8:45am-11:45am Monday-Friday.  This includes patients without fever or respiratory symptoms for the following types of visits:

- annual or well child check- ups, especially those requiring vaccinations

- patients requiring booster vaccinations

- other visits as appropriate

Afternoon appointments will be reserved for symptomatic patients with new onset of fever, cough, sore throat or any other respiratory symptoms. 

We have increased the frequency of cleaning and sanitation in all areas of the office. Sinks with hand soap as well as hand sanitizer are available throughout the office.  The toys, books and stickers have been removed from the waiting area to minimize contact with commonly touched surfaces. 

  • Please call the office when you arrive to be sure that there is an exam room available

  • For parents, guardians, and patients (above 2 years) please wear a mask and practice social distancing while in the office (maintaining 6ft, 1.8m between people).

  • Please bring something from home to occupy your child while waiting.  

  • Please have only one guardian bring patients to visits. 

  • Please bring only children with scheduled appointments to visits.

  • Please complete payment of co-pays and balances via telephone prior to the visit to limit time in the office.

We are now offering Telemedicine visits.  Telemedicine/ virtual visits may be available for the following conditions during regular office hours:

  • Allergies

  • Diarrhea

  • Insect Bites

  • Conjunctivitis/ pink eye

  • Rashes/ eczema

  • Sprains & Strains

  • Attention deficit (ADD) visit

Your health and safety is our highest priority.  We truly appreciate the trust that you place in our team.  

Sincerely,
