Office update 3/17/2020

With daily, to some times hourly, updates coming from the WHO, CDC, and White House, I wanted to create a page that you can come to for the latest updates on changes to our practice hours and operations. We understand that some of these changes aren't convenient for you (or us), but we are doing our best to reduce any possible exposures for your families and or team.

EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY and until further notice:

- NO WALK INS- We will have same day appointments Monday through Friday. Please call so that we can screen you and make your appointment for the appropriate time or to direct you to a testing facility. We will do our best to accommodate all patients who call and as quickly as possible

- VIDEO VISITS- We have offered these for some time, but we are expanding the services offered. If we can provide a video visit, we will chose this over an in person visit. All ADHD/Anxiety will ONLY be televisits.

- APPOINTMENT TYPES AND TIMES- We will see well visit in the mornings ONLY and sick visit in the afternoon only. This will give us a chance to thoroughly disinfect the office in the evening and clear the air for the next morning.

-NO SICK KIDS/PARENTS AT WELL VISITS- This means if your are scheduled for a well visit, you nor your child can have ANY illness complaints. That means during our morning well checks, there can be nobody with a cough, runny nose, fever, sore throat, ear ache, or any other complaint. This is to protect all of our team and other patients. We are taking this matter so seriously, arriving with a child or parent that has any illness symptoms could lead to dismissal from the practice. Please simply call and reschedule if you are your child have any illness symptoms.

-NO WAITING ROOM- You will be immediately taken to an exam room and there will be no waiting in the waiting room.

-LIMITED FAMILY- We request that only one parent and the child that is being seen come to our office. If you need to reschedule to make this happen, it would be appreciated. If you simply cannot do this, please let us know so that we can prepare accordingly.

We will continue to clean each exam room thoroughly after every visit and wipe down all surface and door knobs, etc frequently. We appreciate your understanding as we work to diligently protect your children and staff.
