Thought we would give you a quick update on some COVID related items since it has been a little while!
1) The office is once again open regular hours. We are dividing our day between sick and well patients. We see “well”/non contagious patients between 9am-12pm, and 2-4pm each day. Between 12-1pm, and 4-5pm, we see any patient who is ill and may be contagious. We do a thorough cleaning of the office surfaces in each exam room after each patient, and the waiting room and common areas between 1-2pm.
2) Check Ups/Sports Physical/Well Care – We use these words interchangably, they are all the same to us! The big thing is keep coming to get one yearly! If you missed one this spring or summer trying to stay at home please call and get that scheduled. We are still taking extra precautions to make sure the office is clean, and that we separate well and sick visits!
3) COVID testing
4) We are doing telehealth visits for other things besides COVID related items when we feel they are appropriate. The nurses will help determine if that is appropriate. Some of the doctors on call can also do these visits on the weekends so if you have a simple concern (pink eye or rash for example) on the weekend and are considering a visit to an urgent care or emergency room but would rather avoid that, please call the doctor on call, and they can direct what is best for care for you child.
If you called the office and your child was scheduled for a telehealth visit please use the appropriate link below for the provider with whom you were scheduled (these are not monitored regularly, they are only available if an appointment is scheduled):
