Here at PGA we continue to provide healthcare services for your family because the health of our patients is our first priority. Our phones turn on at 8am Monday through Saturday. We want to hear about your concerns. Please call us anytime.

If your child needs medication refills, especially for chronic illness, please call as soon as possible to avoid running out of medications. If your child has asthma, check to make sure you have rescue medications on hand (like albuterol).

We continue to work on expanding access to services. The American Academy of Pediatrics has recommended for patient care to continue when possible based on the community. This includes checkups and vaccinations, especially for infants and toddlers who are at higher risk for vaccine-preventable illness. PGA has been and will continue implementing additional, extensive cleaning measures, and minimizing groups waiting in common areas. Currently provider telephone visits can be scheduled if desired. We are also now offering telemedicine visits via Doxy.me and FaceTime on Apple devices. 

To protect everyone, we recommend avoiding urgent care clinics and Emergency Departments unless the patient is experiencing serious symptoms. We want to encourage patients to avoid waiting in a crowded area and reserve those services for patients with emergency needs. This will also help preserve equipment to take care of seriously ill patients and protect healthcare workers.

As a reminder, if you are coming to the office, please limit the number of people to the patient and 1 adult caregiver when possible. If you want to call when you arrive from your car we will be happy to begin your check in on the phone. Please cover any cough or sneeze with a tissue and discard it right away and clean your hands. Please let us know before you enter the office if anyone has had a recent cough or fever.

We are all in this together as we work to stay healthy, safe, and #flattenthecurve.
