As of mid September, 2020, for our patients, we currently have a limited supply of flu vaccine, both the nasal form and the injectable form. Please call our office to schedule an appointment
Our office continues to be open for our patients during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are doing our best to keep our office a safe place. We continue to offer well visit appointments. However, please call our office to reschedule your child's appointment if your child or any household member is ill. The day prior to each visit, we are calling each patient to remind them about their appointment and rescheduling if anyone at home is ill.
We request that you limit the people who come in for an office visit to the patient and one parent. All visitors to our office should wear a mask during the entire duration of the visit, except for individuals under age 2 years. If a visitor does not have a mask, one will be provided by our office staff.
If you have a sick child at home please call our office during regular office hours. We are conducting most of our visits for ill patients using a telehealth platform. This type of video chat is HIPAA compliant. For the few ill patients who require a visit to our office, we provide those patients a separate entrance to the office (avoiding the waiting room) and a dedicated exam room for ill patients only.
Please continue to practice good hygiene at home including frequent cleaning of everyone's hands.
