Coronavirus Information

We do have rapid antigen Covid-19 testing available in our office for those needing clearance to return to school/daycare settings! 
  • 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. 
  • 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! 
  • 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. You will need to call us when you arrive to our office and await further guidance from our staff! Please do not enter the building until a staff member directs you to. 
  • Also, we are currently following the recommendation of the American Academy of Pediatrics regarding the scheduling of our appointments. We are seeing well children ONLY during the morning hours. If you are scheduled for an appointment during these hours and are exhibiting any sick symptoms at all, you will be rescheduled. Our staff is calling ahead to screen you for your appointments. 
  • Please be aware that we are experiencing a higher call volume right now. Please be patient with us, as it might take us longer to return calls to you. We pride ourselves in offering amazing care to your family, but are trying our best to keep up with the increased call volume.
