To help keep our patients, staff and community healthy, we have made the following changes

Coronavirus Scheduling Update:
— All well exam/check-ups for kids older than 2 y/o that are not having issues are encouraged to reschedule for a later date. Please call the office to do so.
— All well exam/check-ups will be moved to morning hours on Mondays and Wednesdays for the next few weeks. If you have an appointment in the afternoon, please allow us to reschedule when we call you.
— All sick kids who need to be seen will be scheduled on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays and in the afternoon hours on Mondays and Wednesdays after being triaged for symptoms and any previous exposure to coronovirus. After checking in, if we do not have a room available, we encourage you to wait in your car until further guidance from our staff.
—If your child has a low-grade fever and cough but is showing NO signs of respiratory distress and is hydrated and comfortable, please try to ride this out AT HOME. Treat the symptoms with Tylenol, lots of fluids and rest. We cannot test for COVID19 and we have no treatment for it either. Avoid ER if possible!. We are happy to see all patients with worsening respiratory symptoms, ear pain or sore throat, high fevers that do not respond to meds, or signs of dehydration — but recommend everyone with mild symptoms to self-quarantine until symptoms are resolved.
— At this time, we are requesting please have only one adult bring the child to their appointment.
— We are taking extra precautions by disinfecting our facilities daily, our exams rooms after every patient use putting emphasis on the cleanliness of door handles, viewing areas, light-switches, counter tops, etc.
Finally, we again encourage you to practice social distancing by remaining AT HOME with your family.
We appreciate your support and understanding and are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
Please help us keep YOU healthy!
