The health & safety of our patients,families,& staff continues to be a top priority so we have put into place many changes to ensure your children get the care they need in a safe appointment experience.  
We have instituted a new mobile registration and check-in system so that you have little to no time in the waiting room and can go from your car to a designated,prepared exam room with only a brief stop by the front desk.  Registration forms, insurance cards, and co-payments can all be submitted prior to your arrival at the office. When you arrive we ask that you call or text us through the registration system and we will let you know when your room is ready. 
All surfaces and equipment are wiped down between each patient.  We are asking families to limit the number people coming into the office to only the patient and one adult caretaker when possible and for everyone who can medically tolerate it to wear a mask.  Everyone that enters the office is being screened for Covid exposure and symptoms so that high risk individuals can be triaged into the safest appointment type to avoid risk to others. Telemedicine and curbside appointments are being offered for appropriate conditions. We do not want our patients to have to go the ER or express care if unnecessary and thus are keeping open spaces for same-day visits.
The walk-in clinic has been suspended, however beginning Monday July 6, we will offer a Drive-Up Call-In Clinic M-F from 8:00-9:00am for sports physicals and non-sick care such as rashes,insect bites,poison ivy,sunburn,ear pain,ect.  The Drive-Up Call-In Clinic witll not be for visits that require vaccines or for patients who are ill with fever or cough, in which case we ask you to call to speak with a nurse to schedule the most appropriate and safe appointment type. 
If your child has been exposed to Covid-19, call us to that we can help you navigate the next steps for them and your family. We cannot do the blood antibody test at the office, but we may swab your child if indicated. 
We appreciate your patience and support as we strive to meet the ongoing needs of our community in the safest manner possible.  There continues to be more questions than answers about the pandemic and our protocols will continue to evolve as we acquire more knowledge.  We feel confident that we can safely care for our patients, so please call us with any concerns.
