Coronavirus COVID19

Appointments

 

We are officially for well-child visits for all children! Please give us a call to schedule an appointment. Given the ongoing concerns for the Coronavirus COVID19 Pandemic, we will be implementing a number of precautions to ensure the safety of our patients, staff, and community:

  • We will be limiting the number of appointment slots each day in order to ensure that only one patient is in the office at any given time for your family’s safety

  • Each patient will be accompanied by only one parent/guardian (no siblings in the office at the same time)

  • We will be performing temperature screenings for all staff, parents/guardians, and patients upon arrival

  • We will be temporarily closing the waiting room to reduce the potential for exposure, so if you arrive before your appointment time, you will wait in your vehicle

  • Face masks will be required for all staff, parents/guardians, and patients

  • All care areas will be cleaned and sanitized between appointments

 

For sick visits, please call us before coming in for everyone's safety. Depending on your child's symptoms, we will either set up a telehealth visit or have you come into the office. If we decide that an in-person exam or tests are required, we will meet you in the parking lot and have most of the intake and exam happen with you and your child in your car as to minimize exposure for staff and other families.

Telehealth Visits

We will be introducing telehealth visits to our practice so that we can see your children without the need for you to bring them into the office. This will allow for more convenience while also minimizing the risk of spreading illness. This type of visit will not be suitable for all conditions/problems, so please give us a call to determine if this will be right for you and your child at this time. You will need an iOS or Android tablet or smartphone as well as the AnywhereCare app in order for us to have a telehealth visit. If you have any questions, please feel free to let us know!
