****CORONAVIRUS INFORMATION****

We are here for you. We know things are chaotic at home and in life right now, but we have made changes so we can serve the patients that are needed to be seen in clinic right now. More importantly, we have created availability for you to receive the care you have come to expect from our office. Every day we have providers in the office and on telehealth videos via a HIPAA compliant video platform. No extra apps are needed, these visits can happen on your phone or your laptop through a web browser. You can pre book a telehealth visit with your provider if it's not urgent. If it's urgent, you will be able to 'see' a provider on the same day. We encourage this so you can receive the care you need, but also keep you from having to go to an urgent care or the emergency department if it can be avoided, to reduce your risk of exposure. 

Your friends and family are important to us too. If anyone you know is in need of a e-visit and doesn't have access to it, please let them know we are happy to help during this time. No need to be a prior patient. Just ask them to call the office to schedule and register.

We are taking great strides to continue providing you with great care and keeping you safe during the Coronavirus pandemic. Multiple policies have been implemented:

  • Well ChecksWe are only seeing children 18 months and younger for their well checks, so that they may continue to get critical vaccines. Further, all well checks will be scheduled in the morning only, as we do our best to separate well children from sick children. If your child is currently ill do not schedule for a morning well check.  If your child is older than 18 months and has a well check scheduled in the next few weeks, we will call you to reschedule.
  • Sick Visits: All sick children will first be scheduled for a telemedicine visit; please call to schedule this. If your child needs to be seen, the provider who sees you for the telemedicine appointment will arrange a sick visit in the afternoon. All sick children will be seen in clinic in the afternoon only. Walk-in appointments for strep tests or other issues are currently not available.
  • Non-urgent Appointments: Other non-urgent appointments, including mental health concerns and medication checks, will be conducted by telemedicine. If you are currently on our schedule, we will contact you with information about how they will proceed. 
  • Patient Safety: Multiple measures have been taken to keep you safe in our office.
    • All staff members will be wearing masks, eye protection, and gloves when they interact with your child. 
    • Any child or parent with fever or respiratory symptoms will wear a mask while in our facility.
    • We have eliminated our waiting room, and you will be called from your car and directly ushered to your room. 
    • All well children will be seen in the morning, and all sick children will be seen in the afternoon.
