Like many of you, we are closely monitoring the outbreak of novel coronavirus (COVID-19). We understand that news of the virus’s spread can be alarming, and we want to assure you that our top priority is the safety of our patients, our employees, and our community.
Testing: We are currently not testing for COVID-19 in our office, but if you think you are at risk or exposed and want your child tested then please call us for advise.
We are taking extra measures to keep our office clean and disinfected at all times. We are separating the well visit and sick visit areas inside the office building as well. We are using the front rooms for well visits and back rooms for sick visits.
Ways you can help us to achieve better infection control is by doing the following things:
- Please call us ahead if you are having any respiratory illness with fever over 101F and talk with once of our nurses to go through the screening questions.
- Use the Left side entrance: If your child needs to be seen and an appointment is made, we are requesting all sick patients to enter and exit the building through the back entrance door.
Only the well patients will be entering the building through the front doors.
- Leave siblings at home: During this time of Pandemic to reduce the exposure of sickness and contain the spread, we are asking parents to bring only the patient that needs to be seen and leave other siblings and relatives at home or in the car with another responsible adult.
