Coronavirus Information

We are doing our best to follow CDC coronavirus recommendations, and keep everyone as safe as possible during this outbreak. If your child has mild cold symptoms (runny nose, cough, etc), it is best to stay home. You do not need to see a doctor. This helps decrease everyone's exposure risk.

If you do come see us, you might notice that the toys, books, and chalkboards are put away. We will get them back out when this all blows over. Thank you for your patience! Remember to teach the kids how to cover their coughs, avoid touching their faces and wash their hands frequently. We will all get through this together! 

Additionally, we are requesting at this time that only one parent/guardian accompany the patient to any appointments. Anyone over the age of 2 years must wear a mask upon entry into our office and throughout the duration of the appointment. 

Did you know?!?!?!

We have a patient portal available!

This allows you to have real-time access to immunization records,

medications, labs, vital signs, patient education, imaging, upcoming appointments, and much more! You will also be able to request appointments, refills, test results, and message our office with any NON EMERGENCY related medical questions or concerns.
